A construction site can be very dangerous, and a fall is a common accident on construction sites. The attorneys at the Philadelphia injury law firm of The Levin Firm understand that a fall at a construction site is an accident that has the potential to result in very serious head injuries, neck injuries, back injuries or even death. Our lawyers know that a construction injury could be prevented by the imposition of safety measures and practices. You have a right to recover for all your injuries against the parties that did not take appropriate measures to ensure your safety.
There are a number of hazards that make construction sites particularly prone to falls. Workers are often required to work many stories above the ground on thin boards or scaffolding with no protection from falling over the edge. Deep holes may be left uncovered and without warning signs nearby. Moving or rotating equipment may accidentally knock a worker down quite a distance. The conditions which lead to construction site slip and falls often could have, and should have, been prevented. You can recover for your injuries against any party who was responsible for inspecting the premises and correcting any dangers, but who failed to do so.
It is important to contact an attorney right away if you have fallen at a construction site. The nature of a construction site is that it is constantly changing, and it is important that the site is investigated, observed and photographed in the same condition that it was in when you were injured. Property owners may try to fix the dangerous condition or cover it up, or it may be eliminated on its own as part of the original construction plans. That’s why you need an attorney who will work quickly and efficiently to ensure that you have the strongest case possible so that you can fully recover for your injuries.
