Philadelphia Construction Accident Lawyers Help Victims Involved in Commercial Vehicle Accidents
More Than Five Decades of Combined Experience Representing Both Injured Employees and Bystanders
Construction sites and roadwork zones are high traffic areas where different types of construction vehicles and passenger automobiles must share the road. Unfortunately, accidents involving construction vehicles are common occurrences that often lead to devastating injuries and death for those involved. According to the Federal Highway Administration, there were an estimated 96,626 vehicle crashes that occurred in construction work zones in 2015 alone. Rear-end collisions are the most common type of work zone crash. The Philadelphia construction accident lawyers at McCann Dillon Jaffe & Lamb, LLC, have helped numerous victims of construction vehicle accidents get the restitution they deserve for medical expenses, past and future lost wages and emotional distress.

Employers Have a Duty to Protect Construction Employees From Preventable Accidents
In many cases, construction vehicle accidents are single-vehicle accidents that only injure the driver, usually an employee or subcontractor working at the construction site. Employees are required to undergo additional training before operating construction vehicles and failure to provide such training or validate proper training documentation may lead to liability for the employer. In addition, vehicles must be routinely inspected as well as properly maintained and repaired. If your employer is negligent in maintaining company vehicles, you may be able to recover compensation for your medical expenses and lost wages. Employers are also responsible for ensuring that a construction site is safe and accessible for all types of machinery. Unsafe working conditions lead to thousands of accidents each year and in many cases, these accidents are entirely preventable. Our Philadelphia personal injury lawyers take the time to fully investigate the circumstances surrounding your accident to develop a comprehensive strategy and get you the damages you deserve.
