The Legal Support You Need After A Construction Accident
Injured construction workers and their families need to understand their legal options. Even though construction sites are inherently dangerous places to work, you still have rights should you suffer injuries.
At Pfeiffer Brown DiNicola & Frantz in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, our attorneys can navigate you through the workers’ compensation process and/or help you pursue a lawsuit. Call 570-391-0199 to get your questions answered.
We do not charge any fee for legal consultations. We only charge a fee when we win financial settlements or awards.
What Are Your Options?
Under Pennsylvania law, employees have the right to receive workers’ compensation for their on-the-job injuries. However, construction accident cases are complicated for a number of reasons, including complex employee-employer relationships and the severity of injuries.

When you hire our firm, we will work hard to determine:
- Who is responsible to cover your workers’ compensation claim? Because of the nature of construction work, and the many levels of contracting and subcontracting, your employee-employer relationship may be muddled. Our legal team includes a *Certified Workers’ Compensation Specialist, and we are prepared to determine which employer is obligated to cover your workers’ compensation claim.
- Should you file a lawsuit? While it is generally not possible to sue your employer after a construction accident, there may be another party that is liable for your injuries. When injuries are caused by defective machinery, gear or another party other than your employer, it may be important to file a workplace injury claim. We will pursue all possible avenues for you to help ensure you get the money you need for medical bills, lost wages and more. We charge absolutely no fees until we win.
Do not be afraid to report a construction injury or file a workers’ compensation claim. This is your right. Your employer cannot legally fire you for doing this.
