Injured In A Construction Accident?

At Shollenberger Januzzi & Wolfe, our personal injury lawyers advise construction workers who have been hurt on the job about the full range of their legal options. These will often include a personal injury claim against a negligent defendant, a workers' compensation claim for lost income and medical expenses, and for the most serious injuries, a claim for Social Security Disability benefits.

Depending on the specific facts, all three approaches to compensation might be available for the same construction injury. For reliable advice about your legal options, contact our offices in Harrisburg or Enola for a free consultation.

Guidance On Personal Injury And Workers' Comp

Our construction accident practice focuses on the needs of injured workers employed across the spectrum of the building trades on commercial, residential and infrastructure development projects. Because most jobs are performed by workers operating under independent contracts, there's a higher likelihood that personal injury damages might be available instead of or in addition to workers' comp benefits.

We work with people whose injuries range from serious trauma to soft tissue in the back, knees or shoulders to disabling head or spinal injuries. Our clients include workers involved in such trades as the following:

  • Excavation
  • Paving
  • Electrical work
  • Carpentry
  • Plumbing
  • Remodeling or rehab
  • Demolition
  • Painting
  • Roofing

While we're working on your damages or benefits claims, we can also help you get past any problems you encounter with insurance coverage, medical treatment or effective physical therapy. Our attorneys are also committed to serving our clients' needs quickly. If you don't reach us on the phone on the first try, you'll find that we usually return our calls within a few hours.
