Pittsburgh Worksite Slip & Fall Attorneys

Injuries From Scaffolding Falls and Ladders – Pennsylvania

The slightest wrong move on a dangerous worksite can cause a serious tragedy. Construction workers, roofers, painters and other laborers face these types of dangers daily. Oftentimes workplace injuries from falls are not the fault of the worker, but are due to unsafe working conditions or negligent employers or co-workers.

Regardless of who was at fault, accidents happen and that is why employers carry workers’ compensation insurance.

When a slip or fall occurs on the job, you may be entitled to file a workers’ compensation claim through your employer’s insurance company.

However, under workers’ compensation, you may be told that you can only see certain doctors or that some of the costs of medical bills, lost wages or future lost wages may not be rewarded to you.

The insurance company or HR department may not inform you of all your legal rights in order for you to receive the maximum benefits available.

An aggressive Pennsylvania Workers Compensation Lawyer working on your behalf can make all the difference in your life and your bank account. Our construction and workplace injury attorneys do not collect a fee unless we win compensation for you.


We don’t get paid unless you get paid.
