Winning Cases Since 1922

Pennsylvania Construction Accident Lawyers

Tens of Millions Won Since 1922. Serving Carlisle, Hanover, Harrisburg, York & Lancaster.

Accidents experienced at a construction site are painful, costly, and, in the worst cases, deadly. Employers have a responsibility to protect those that are working for them. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration revealed that 21.1 percent of workplace deaths in 2016 were construction workers. This means that of 4,693 fatalities, 991 worked in the construction industry. When an accident happens at a worksite, employers must be held accountable for the negligence that cause the accident.

The personal injury attorneys at Handler, Henning & Rosenberg have been representing the citizens of Pennsylvania since 1922, proudly representing clients throughout Carlisle, Hanover, Harrisburg, Lancaster, York, and all of the surrounding areas. Our legal team has used our experience to win tens of millions in verdicts and settlements for our clients. We know what it takes to win, and we want to help those who need our experience the most after a construction accident. When accidents happen, they change the lives of those who experience them. Medical debt, pain, and disability are things that no hard-working Pennsylvanian should endure.

Don’t delay! Our Pennsylvania construction accident attorneys are ready to help you start your recovery.

The Fatal Four

According to OSHA, 1 out of every 5 worker fatalities are in the construction industry.

These deaths could be drastically reduced by focusing what has become known as the “Fatal Four.” Identified as causing 63.7% of construction worker deaths, the Fatal Four represent the areas that need to most focus to prevent injury and death.

The Fatal Four includes the following events:

  • Falls: In 2016, 384 people died from falling in construction. This figure makes falling the most common prevalent of the Fatal Four. Falling may happen from scaffolding, ladders, deep ditches, and high platforms that are not protected with guardrails.
  • Electrocution: As construction workers deal with high voltage wiring, they are frequently exposed to the dangers of electrocution. Unsafe practices with electrical wiring and components may lead to burn injuries or death in moments.
  • Struck by Object: Building materials and heavy machinery pose a serious threat to those working with and around them. Construction workers who are struck by the heavy objects used commonly in the industry often suffer from severe injuries.
  • Caught In or Between – The same machinery mentioned above pose a threat of pinning or crushing workers. Causes of these incidents involve operating machinery as wells as being crushed by walls, scaffolding, or other large structures.

Workers’ Compensation

Those who have been hurt in a construction accident may be entitled to receive workers’ compensation. Though the law surrounding it may be complex, workers’ compensation is one of the most effective ways to starting your recovery after a construction accident. However, workers must be vigilant in reporting an incident when it happens. An employee has 120 days to file a claim after they have been injured. Notably, it does not matter how an injury occurs while on the job—it only matters that the injury occurred while working for the company the claim is being filed against. It is incredibly important to inform an employer immediately after an accident. Doing this will create a record of when the accident happened and enables you to prove your injuries occurred while working.
