Many construction workers' accidents occur from falls

Every Pennsylvania worker faces hazards, and some are more prevalent than others. For construction workers, one of the most common dangers comes from falls. You may spend a significant amount of time on scaffolding. Falls from these structures make up a large portion of the construction workers' accidents that occur.

If you fell from scaffolding, you more than likely suffered serious injuries. You could need time off work to recover. Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may spend a significant amount of time in the hospital and then recovering. During that time, you may worry about the rapidly accumulating medical bills and your rapidly declining income.

Fortunately, regardless of the cause of your fall, you may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits. Those benefits are designed to cover your injury-related medical care and needs, along with a portion of your income. You may also need other benefits depending on the situation.

You may also be able to file a third party personal injury claim to receive additional restitution for your injuries. If the scaffolding or your personal safety equipment was defective, you may be able to hold other parties responsible for your injuries. The question is whether the right elements exist for this option.

A Pennsylvania construction workers' accidents attorney could help in that regard. An investigation of the equipment and the circumstances could reveal that there was more to your accident than just a simple fall at work. While your attorney guides you through the workers' compensation process, he or she can also investigate other avenues of restitution on your behalf.
