Philadelphia Construction Accident Lawyer
The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C. recognize the inherently hazardous nature of the construction industry. The fact of the matter is that, despite only compromising eight percent of the workforce, the construction industry accounts for an astounding seventeen percent of all work-related deaths.
The time that it takes for you to recover from an accident is exclusively dependent on you taking it easy while you heal. This is almost impossible in the repercussion of a work injury, provided that you are trying to handle everything on your own. The stressors of medical bills, insurance claims, loss of wages may mark only the beginning of financial strains and it takes the trained eye lawyer to catch the details that you did not notice about your case at first. The counsel of an attorney is meant to lift the burden of paperwork off of your shoulders, and our firm is here to ensure that you take the appropriate measures following your injury.
The consequences of a mistake or equipment failure in this industry can be disastrous, and the injuries suffered as a result can be extremely severe, or even deadly. At The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C. we pursue compensation from those responsible, and recover significant benefits for the victims of a construction accident.

Construction Accident Compensation
Construction related accidents frequently result in serious or catastrophic injury. Injuries of the back and spine, brain trauma, electric shock, burns, broken bones, amputations, and crushing injuries are not uncommon. These injuries may require long-term and costly treatment. In the most horrific cases, construction accidents can even lead to wrongful death. The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C. will make sure that those responsible pays.
Construction companies, general contractors, subcontractors, equipment manufacturers, and property owners are but a few of the parties who may be responsible for damages in a construction accident. The specific details of the individual accident are invaluable in determining who is responsible for damages. For instance, a contractor may be responsible for the error of their employee. An equipment manufacturer may be at fault due to a product liability issue. Or a number of parties may have combined to create an unsafe condition resulting in injury.
Our understanding of construction safety regulations and the technologies in play, along with our investigatory techniques and taking of depositions empower us to determine the party at fault. We take the necessary action against these parties to ensure you receive fair compensation for medical costs, lost income, future earnings, and pain and suffering.
