Construction is a dangerous occupation, but it does not mean that work sites should be unsafe. You can file for benefits through workers’ compensation, or through your employer’s insurance policy or through a third-party claim if injured. These cases are very complicated, and hiring a Philadelphia construction accident lawyer at Shuttleworth Law P.C. may add tremendous value to your case.
“Insurance companies & third parties with the ability to pay will offer injury victims as little as possible. It’s Negotiations 101, and it’s what. they. do. They’ll miss relevant facts or use out-of-context statements against you. Even before filing your injury claim, call me; I’ll give you my free opinion.”Brad V. Shuttleworth, Esq.

Third-Party Construction Injury Claims Allow You to Recuperate Additional Compensation
You can file a third-party claim if you can prove that the owner, contractor, or subcontractor acted negligently and injured you. Your employer’s policy is limited to basic needs and medical necessities. In contrast, third-party claims seek additional damages from third parties when their negligence leads to an injury.
You can hire a Philadelphia construction accident lawyer at Shuttleworth Law P.C. to help you pursue additional compensation, including:
- Mental anguish
- Physical pain and suffering
- Punitive damages
- Scarring & disfigurement
- Unpaid medical expenses
- Wrongful death benefits
- Other recoverable damages
Insurance companies and negligent individuals will aggressively defend your allegations against them. Hire our legal team to ensure that they do not unfairly or unlawfully pay you less.
Important: Do Not Miss Legal Deadlines
There are deadlines in Pennsylvania called the statute of limitations, which vary according to the facts. Missing it will result in a forfeiture of your right to file a claim or go to civil court. It is also worth noting that this timeline is much shorter if certain parties are involved.
Hiring a Philadelphia construction accident injury lawyer at Shuttleworth Law P.C. as soon as possible ensures that you avoid missing critical deadlines governing your case. Our legal team is ready to hit the ground running and fight for the financial award you deserve.
