Pittsburgh Construction Accident Lawyer

Injured on Site? Call the Law Office of Melvin L. Vatz.

Construction work is inherently dangerous. The equipment is heavy and the structures can be high. There is a reason that many large construction sites have signs indicating the number of days without injuries as such days are uncommon in the construction industry. Efforts to make worksites safe often conflict with deadlines and cost cutting, and therefore construction site accidents are frequent.

Our Pittsburgh construction accident attorney helps injured construction workers obtain compensation for any of the following:

  • Lost wages
  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Funeral costs
  • Loss of companionship
  • Other expenses

Compassionate Support When You’ve Been Injured

The Law Office of Melvin L. Vatz has assisted construction workers who suffered brain injuries as a result of crane collapses and scaffold falls. Our clients have experience amputations, electrocution, and significant spinal cord injuries.

We have also assisted families who have been devastated by the death of a loved one in a construction site accident, such as workers who have been killed by falling steel beams or a passing vehicle at a roadway construction site. For wrongful death claims we undertake the same high level of investigation that we do for any injury case. We use our skilled investigators to determine fault and consult with economists and vocational specialists to determine the value of the wrongful death case. We also use the experts' findings to develop a strong compensation argument.
