Construction Accident Liability
Seriously injured on a construction site? Watch this video to learn about construction accident liability and who can be sued for your injuries in Pennsylvania.
Can I sue my employer for my construction accident?
There are times when people are injured in the course of their employment and one of the questions that always comes up is, “Who can I hold responsible, and can I sue my employer?” In Pennsylvania, there is a workers’ compensation law that, in most instances, precludes you from suing your employer. Your only recourse against your employer would be recovery of workers’ compensation benefits. However, it’s important in those situations to talk with an experienced lawyer, because there are exceptions to that general rule that might permit you to go forward with a civil action against your employer. Even if you cannot sue your employer, a lawyer can help you make a full recovery of workers’ compensation benefits and can also look and see if there are any additional parties who might have responsibility or liability for your injuries, so that you can make a recovery over and above what’s available to you under workers’ compensation.
