Construction involves many people in a space performing a variety of jobs, often using heavy equipment. Construction workers are more likely to be injured at work when compared to people employed in other fields. The risk of injury is compounded by additional factors such as unfavorable weather conditions, exposure to passing passenger vehicles, and continued operations past dusk.

Shenderovich, Shenderovich & Fishman’s team of construction accident attorneys are here to help you with all of your legal needs concerning injuries while working on a construction job.


Being on the job with other construction workers comes with significant risks. In many cases, only so much can be done to avoid an accident as one is often at the mercy of other crew members, large machinery, incredible heights, and other external influences such as the passage of cars and trucks on the side of the road.

There are numerous different types of injuries that one could sustain while on the job at a construction site in Washington, PA:

  • Falling equipment: Falling equipment and materials is a severe danger to many workers in construction. The reality of working in such volatile areas means that bridges, tall buildings, and suspended objects can present a severe risk to the livelihoods of workers below.
  • Scaffold accidents: Accidents from scaffolds and falling are just as common. When a worker is physically at a higher altitude, there is a clear and present risk that he or she may fall due to unsafe working conditions, poor assembly of the scaffolding, or faulty safety equipment.
  • Machinery safety: Issues with machinery such as cranes and forklifts can also present safety concerns. Improper operation, accidental oversight, and defective machines are just some of the many ways that these immense machines can inflict harm upon a construction worker.
  • Fire and electricity: Explosions, fuel-related fires, electrocutions, and gas leaks are all dangerous possibilities while working on-site.

Construction workers risk their lives each day, due to exposure to a plethora of hazards at work. This vulnerability may be amplified in less-than-optimal working conditions and special projects. Should you or a loved one be injured in a construction accident, you need a skilled attorney to help you navigate the legal system to obtain compensation for your workplace injury.
