One of the most dangerous elements about working on a construction site is that much of the work takes place far above ground. From roofing on residential homes to window installations on multi-story office buildings, construction workers are at serious risk when something goes wrong. If you or someone you love has been seriously injured in a falling accident at work, you want an experienced lawyer to help you through the recovery process.
At Rosenn, Jenkins and Greenwald, LLP, our Wilkes-Barre fall injury attorneys are dedicated to protecting the rights of injured construction workers. As one of the largest and oldest firms in northeast Pennsylvania, we have been helping workers get the full compensation they deserve for over fifty years.
Our attorneys have seen first-hand the serious injuries suffered in worker falls, and we understand that time is of the essence when your health is on the line. While all injured workers are entitled to benefits through workers' compensation, the reality is that workers' comp does not always full cover lost wages and medical expenses.
If you have been injured in a fall from height at work, you may be eligible to make an additional personal injury claim as well. Personal injury claims cannot be filed against an employer or a co-worker, but if a third party is responsible for the conditions that led to your accident you can file a separate personal injury claim against them. From faulty equipment to negligent subcontractors, there are a lot of possible causes for falling accidents on construction sites.
You do not have to be at work to suffer a serious fall from heights. Our firm is dedicated to protecting all personal injury victims, not just workers. If you or someone you love has been injured in a non-work related fall from heights, we can conduct a thorough investigation to determine liability and make sure your rights are protected.
A serious fall accident at work can result in life-altering injuries. We are here to help you through the entire recovery process and make sure you have access to full compensation. With offices in Scranton, Wilkes-Barre and Hazleton, we offer office, home and hospital appointments to clients in northeast Pennsylvania. Contact us today to schedule a free initial consultation.
