Pennsylvania Job Site Accident Lawyer
When you work in an industry that is dangerous, such as construction, accidents happen. Injuries that occur in at-risk occupations tend to be more severe. They can include amputations due to machinery accidents, broken necks and paralysis from falls off of scaffolding, burns and injuries from electricity from electrical wiring accidents, blown out discs from too much heavy lifting and rotator cuff injury from repetitive use of an arm or repetitive overhead activities.

Injuries and Impact on Families
An important issue is that we represent not only the injured worker but also his or her family. We consider the family's concerns. We understand that work injuries can have tremendous impact on a family.
If the injured worker is one of two wage earners in a two-income family, the strain of performing all household duties as well as carrying the majority of the financial responsibilities falls to the other income earner.
If the family is a one-income family, the financial ramifications can cause a family to suffer mounting debt.
We make sure families get all the proper care and compensation they are entitled to.
