CONSTRUCTION AND INDUSTRIAL ACCIDENTS
Each year in Pennsylvania, thousands of construction and industry workers are injured on the job. When an injury is severe, these types of accidents become a medical and legal emergency. While the injured victim is being treated, his or her legal team must begin an immediate investigation into the conditions surrounding the accident.
What types of construction and industrial accident cases have you handled?
Construction and industrial sites are hazardous environments that become even more dangerous through the negligence of others or defective equipment. We have represented and obtained compensation for clients injured in accidents such as:
- Industrial Explosions
- Scaffolding failure
- Ladder collapses
- Crane accidents
- Forklift accidents
- Power equipment accidents
- Delivery truck collisions
- Heavy equipment accidents
What will McMillen Urick Tocci and Jones do for me?
If you are injured on the job, we will immediately begin an investigation to identify all of the contributing factors surrounding your accident, including third party negligence. Third party negligence arises when a party not associated with your employer plays a role in causing your injury. Liable third parties can include negligent construction companies or subcontractors and defective equipment manufacturers. We consult with industry leading experts to determine the cause and origin of the accident to prove liability.
What types of compensation am I entitled to receive?
To fully document the extent of your financial losses, we consider factors such as:
- Current and future medical bills
- Therapy and rehabilitation plans. In severe cases these can include traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, orthopedic injuries, etc.
- Personal care and home healthcare needs
- Pain, suffering, scarring, and loss of quality of life
Who is legally liable for my accident?
Each case is unique, but it is not unusual to learn that construction and industrial worksite injuries, especially those involving heavy equipment, are caused by the following:
- Poor training and supervision
- Inadequate equipment maintenance
- Improper worksite safety measures
- Failure to follow safety protocol
- Violations of State and Federal requirements
- Failure to follow equipment instructions
- Disabled safety mechanisms on equipment
- Poor or defective product design
Why do Construction and Industrial Accidents require an immediate investigation?
Without a prompt investigation following an accident, key evidence may be lost, hidden, or intentionally altered or destroyed, such as defective equipment, debris fields, records and important documents and other contributing factors.
To secure your legal rights and expedite this process, we will visit you at your home or hospital room at no cost.
