The weeks and months ahead are likely to be busy ones for the Philadelphia construction industry. A recent article in the Philadelphia Inquirer says that construction companies are “rebuilding, regrouping, and retraining now for busier days in the future.”
With that rebuilding is likely to come an increase in construction accidents. The construction industry is one of the leading industries for workplace injuries and fatalities. Common construction workplace accidents include injuries and fatalities from:
- Falls from Heights;
- Defective Equipment;
- Motor Vehicles;
- Falling Objects; and
- Slip and Fall Accidents.
If you’ve been hurt, or if you’ve lost a loved one, in a Philadelphia construction accident then you may be entitled to damages. Contact an experienced Philadelphia workers comp lawyer today for more information about your rights.
