Construction sites are dangerous places, even when you take all proper precautions and do everything you can to stay safe. But what do you do when someone else's negligence leads to an injury caused by falling debris or other objects? An experienced lawyer can help you evaluate your recovery options and make sure you protect yourself.
At Rosenn, Jenkins and Greenwald, LLP, our Wilkes-Barre falling debris injury attorneys are dedicated to protecting injured construction workers. As one of the oldest and largest firms in northeast Pennsylvania, we have the resources and experience required to take on those who are responsible. We will make sure you do everything possible to get the medical care you need and financial compensation you deserve.
If you have suffered a work injury, you are entitled to receive limited benefits through workers' compensation. However, if you have been injured in an accident involving falling debris, there is a good chance you may be eligible for additional compensation through a separate personal injury claim.
You cannot file a personal injury claim against your employer or a co-worker. However, if a third party, such as a separate contractor or development company, was responsible for the conditions that led to your accident, you may be able to file a claim. And while workers' compensation benefits are capped, there is no limit to the amount you can receive in a personal injury claim.
Our firm will take immediate action, conducting a thorough investigation and working with outside experts to determine what led to the falling debris accident that caused your injuries. We will explore all possible liability options in order to make sure you maximize your claim.
With medical bills and lost wages to worry about after your falling object injury at work, make sure you do everything you can to maximize your recovery. With offices in Scranton, Wilkes-Barre and Hazleton, our firm is ready to help you every step of the way. Contact us today to schedule a free and confidential consultation.
