A Construction Accident Lawyer Can Help You After an Accident.

Our attorneys understand how stressful the aftermath of a construction accident can be. You might be dealing with a great deal of pain and discomfort. There is a good chance you are feeling stressed out from juggling medical procedures, doctor visits, and worrying about paying your bills if you have to miss work. We are also aware of the toll a workplace injury can take on your family. The household duties that you took care of before your accident often fall to your spouse, parents, or children. They may even have to care for your needs as you recover.

Our attorneys understand the unique challenges of seeking damages for a construction accident. For instance, the type of case we pursue depends largely on who we identify as the responsible party. If it is your employer, we go about the case differently than if it is a site owner or another third party. That is why it is so important to choose a skilled attorney with a successful track record of winning these kinds of cases.

Besides fighting aggressively to win you the maximum in compensation, we also pride ourselves on taking care of the little things for you and removing as much stress from your shoulders as possible. We understand what you are going through and we do not want you to worry about paperwork, legal minutiae, or dealing with insurance companies. We take care of everything for you so you can focus on getting your life back and recovering from your injuries.

We treat you like a member of our family and take the outcome of your case personally. You will not find a construction accident lawyer in Philadelphia who works harder for you. We pride ourselves on customer service and communication and keep you in the loop throughout every step of the process.

We Can Seek Compensation in a Variety of Construction Accidents.

We will fight for a lucrative settlement for you no matter how your construction injury occurred. Our expert investigative team examines the details of your accident, identifies all responsible parties, gathers substantial evidence to prove our case, and then fights aggressively for the most compensation possible in your case.

Our attorneys have won big settlements for clients injured in the following types of construction accidents:

  • Heavy equipment injuries;
  • Vehicle collisions;
  • Slip and fall accidents;
  • Harness malfunctions;
  • Falling object injuries;
  • Back injuries from heavy lifting;
  • Injuries from repetitive stress, such as carpal tunnel syndrome;
  • Defective product cases; and
  • Scaffolding

We have also helped clients whose accidents do not appear on the above list. However your injury occurred, our team can investigate it, determine who was responsible, and win damages from them. We take your case personally, just as if we were representing a member of our own family. Come talk to us and find out what we can do for you.

We Pursue Both Your Employer and Any Responsible Third Parties for Compensation.

After taking your case, the first part of our job is to investigate the details of your accident and identify all responsible parties. Chances are, the liable party is your employer or a third party, such as a site owner or construction equipment manufacturer.

The identity of the responsible party determines what type of case we pursue. If it is your employer, we must seek damages through the workers’ compensation system. If a third party is responsible, we can pursue a traditional case against them. This might entail negotiating a settlement out of court.  Alternatively, if we cannot get them to agree to suitable terms, we can take your case all the way to a jury trial.

Workers’ Compensation

In order to win damages from your employer, we must utilize the workers’ compensation system. As long as your employer is in compliance with workers’ comp, you should have coverage under the system. We will not be able to file a lawsuit against them.

The system should provide a cut-and-dry way for injured employees to make claims and receive compensation without having to go through the arduous process of a court case. However, it often does not go as smoothly as you would like.

Employers can deny workers’ compensation claims. They sometimes do this for dubious reasons. They may claim you were behaving recklessly at the time of your accident. They could also say you were under the influence of drugs or alcohol. By involving a construction accident lawyer from Cordisco & Saile LLC from the beginning, you maximize your chances of getting approved up front without a fight. We can anticipate any challenges from your employer and counter them effectively.

Third Party

In addition to your employer, a third-party individual or company might bear liability for your accident. This is often the case if your accident occurred on a construction site your employer does not own or if a defective piece of equipment failed and caused your injury. In such situations, we can try to negotiate a settlement out of court. If necessary, we will file suit against the responsible third party and potentially take it all the way to a jury trial.
