Bucks County Construction Accident Lawyer

Thousands of workers are killed and injured annually in construction-related accidents. These injuries can be devastating and can seriously affect personal and professional life.

When an injury is sustained on the job, it may not be possible to make a claim against the employer. The situation must be handled under the Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation Act. If there is demonstrated negligence, however, an architect, contractor, subcontractor, property owner, leaser, manufacturer or management company may be responsible. In these cases, it is critical to partner with a skilled attorney who deeply understands the complex interplay between workers' compensation benefits. We do, and we are ready to advocate for you.

Construction Site Injury Attorney

I have concentrated on personal injury and workers' compensation issues, and in 25 years of practice I have arrived at multiple multimillion-dollar settlements and verdicts for injuries involving:

  • Scaffolding
  • Cranes
  • Power tools
  • Ladders
  • Heavy machinery (including forklifts, pay loaders, bulldozers and cherry pickers)
  • Defective equipment
  • OSHA violations

and in activities, including:

  • Pouring foundations
  • Running backhoes
  • Spills
  • Chemical usage

I want to point out that I am one of the few board certified workers' compensation lawyers in the state who has specialized (requiring a test) in workers' compensation and has written, published, lectured and testified on workers' compensation in legal malpractice. I have also chaired both the workers' compensation and Trial Lawyers sections of the Philadelphia Bar Association and sat on the Board of Governors for the Philadelphia Bar Association.

It is this knowledge that allows me to maximize compensation for you. I know what to do and how to maximize compensation for negligence (even if it involves multiple parties) and maximize workers' compensation if you are entitled to benefits.
