A construction site accident can lead to serious injuries, even death. Due to the dangerous nature of many construction sites, most accidents leave the victim out of work, severely injured, or even permanently disabled. At Berger and Green, our Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania injury law firm is dedicated to assisting the victims and families of victims with personal injury and wrongful death claims related to construction site accidents.
Our lawyers can assist you and your family in recovering the compensation you deserve for injuries suffered in a construction accident in Pennsylvania. We will aggressively pursue claims against negligent contractors, maintenance, support staff, and workers. Contact us to discuss your case.
We are experienced with handling all types of construction site accidents, including:
- Malfunctioning equipment or faulty equipment

An injury to a worker on a construction site may require a complicated course of recovery. Workers’ compensation benefits are likely available to provide for lost wages and medical expenses. However, many injured construction workers have suffered catastrophic injuries, such as a brain injury, a severe back injury, a spinal cord injury, complex fractures, amputation, or other disfigurement. Workers’ compensation benefits will not begin to cover the full extent of the medical and treatment needs for these clients. Additional compensation may be available through third party liability claims.
Our attorneys are experienced working with victims and families who may have recovered workers’ compensation, but who are also pursuing personal injury claims against other negligent third parties including non-employer contractors, subcontractors, premises owners, and maintenance workers. We are experienced with filing claims so workers can recover the full amount of compensation potentially available.
In addition to assisting injured construction workers, our lawyers are also experienced in handling claims by innocent bystanders injured by negligent construction practices. We have handled claims for pedestrians who have been injured by falling objects or unsecured scaffolding equipment. Our firm also has the experience to represent innocent bystanders who are struck by construction vehicles or are otherwise injured on or nearby a construction site.
