Our Pittsburgh Attorneys Represent Construction Workers and Passers-By Injured at a Construction Site
A construction site is an inherently dangerous environment, and victims of construction accidents are likely to experience life-changing, catastrophic injuries. If a member of your family was involved in such an accident, you know that workers' compensation alone will not fully compensate you for your loss. It is important to investigate all sources of compensation in order to recover the resources you and your family will need in the months and years ahead. An injured construction worker, or the family of the victim of a fatal accident, may be entitled to claims in addition to workers' compensation.
