Pittsburgh Construction Site Accident Lawyer

Allegheny County Construction Site Accident Lawyer

Attorney for Worksite Injuries Serving Allegheny County and the Surrounding Areas

A construction site, by its very nature, is an extremely dangerous place to work or even visit. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), tens of thousands of workers on injured on construction sites in the United States each year, and approximately 1,000 individuals are killed. Construction site dangers are not limited to those who work in the construction industry, as visitors—both authorized and unauthorized—to such a site may also be at risk for injury as well. At Colianni & Leonard LLC, our experienced team represents those who have been injured on construction sites as they seek compensation for their injuries.

Protecting the Rights of Western PA Construction Workers

The construction industry is different from most others in that a large number of those who work in construction-related fields are independent contractors. This means that workers' compensation laws often do not apply when a construction worker is injured on the job. Additionally, injured workers who are eligible for workers' compensation may quickly realize that the available benefits are not nearly adequate to cover all of their losses. These situations generally require the victim to file a third-party claim against any parties whose actions or negligence caused the victim's injuries.

At Colianni & Leonard LLC, we understand that a construction site will always be dangerous, even under the best of circumstances, but many worksite injuries are preventable. We are equipped to help you seek compensation for injuries caused by:

  • Defective equipment, including ladders and scaffolding;
  • Structural collapses;
  • Falling equipment or building materials;
  • Fires, explosions, or electric shock;
  • Forklift, crane, and other vehicle accidents; and
  • Falls from heights.

In some cases, the property owner may be responsible under the principles of premises liability, while in others, liability may fall on other individuals or companies on the site.

Wexford Injury Lawyer Who Gets Results

The first step on the road to financial recovery after a construction site accident is determining exactly what happened and who may be responsible. Our team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to meet with you and to get started in building your case.
