Construction Site Accidents
Pittsburgh Construction Accident Lawyer
Pennsylvania Work Injury Attorneys
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-such days are uncommon in the construction industry. Efforts to make worksites safe often conflict with deadlines and cost cutting. Construction site accidents are frequent.
At the Pittsburgh Law Office of Melvin L. Vatz, Mr. Vatz has helped injured construction workers obtain compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, as well as pain and suffering. We have assisted construction workers who suffered brain injuriesas a result of crane collapses and scaffold falls. Our clients have experience amputations, electrocution, and significant spinal cord injuries.
We help families recover damages after a wrongful death on a construction site
We have assisted families who have been devastated by the death of a loved one in a construction site accident. Workers 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. We 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 for lost income, funeral expenses, loss of companionship, and other costs of the death.
