What Sets Construction Falls Apart from Other Workplace Accidents?

What should I do immediately after a fall at a construction site?

Report the incident to your employer promptly, document your injury, seek medical attention, and consult with an attorney at Martin Law to navigate the claims process to ensure you receive the benefits that you deserve.

How long do I have to report a construction site fall to my employer?

In Pennsylvania, you have 120 days to inform your employer that you have been injured at work. Be sure to inform your supervisor of the details of the incident as soon as possible and record it in writing. Delayed reporting could affect your eligibility for compensation.

Workers’ compensation benefits typically include medical expenses and a portion of your lost wages during your recovery period.

You may be required to see a doctor approved by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. After 90 days from the injury, you may seek treatment with any physician or other healthcare provider you choose.

How long do workers’ compensation benefits last after a construction site falls?

Benefits may cover medical expenses until you reach maximum medical improvement, and wage replacement benefits may continue for a specific period.

What if a third party is responsible for my construction site fall?

If a third party (someone other than your employer or co-worker) is responsible for your fall, the attorneys at Martin Law will put you in contact with a trusted attorney to file a personal injury lawsuit against that party, in addition to receiving workers’ compensation benefits.
