Scranton Construction Law Attorneys Build a Case for You

Credibility, compassion and commitment from our construction law team in Luzerne and Lackawanna Counties

While Pennsylvania law protects construction workers injured on the job, the need for a skilled and knowledgeable law firm remains for those who’ve been injured on job sites. The Law Firm of Cognetti & Cimini has fought for the rights of injured construction workers for more than 60 years. We are lawyers and paraprofessionals with the knowledge and experience to successfully win construction accident cases.

Common types of construction accidents

Construction sites are hubs of activity, with many different kinds of work going on in the same areas.  Both workers and machines move about in these areas, increasing the likelihood that accidents will occur. Statistics indicate that nationwide, nearly 1,000 construction workers are killed each year on the job. Of these, one-third, or more than 300 deaths, result from construction site falls.

The most common types of construction accidents are:

  • Construction site falls
    • Roof falls
    • Crane falls on construction sites
    • Scaffolding falls
    • Elevator shaft falls
    • Holes in flooring of construction sites
    • Falling objects
  • Crane accidents
  • Scaffolding accidents
    • Defective scaffolding
    • Improperly assembled scaffolding
  • Workers run over by operating equipment
    • Hit by highway vehicles
  • Electrical accidents on construction sites
    • Electric shock
    • Electrocutions
    • Power line contact
  • Compressed gas explosions
  • Electrical accidents on construction sites
  • Trench collapses
  • Fires and explosions on construction sites
    • Compressed gas explosions
  • Welding accidents on construction sites

Each of these accidents can be tragic and deadly, but when effective safety measures could have prevented them, we can help injured parties seek justice and help prevent further accidents from occurring.
