Professional Legal Representation

for Construction-Related Injuries

Stapp Law, LLC provides professional legal counsel and representation for workers who have been injured during the course of their employment in the construction, oil, and gas industries. Although workers’ compensation provides some relief for construction-related injuries, there are cases when it is simply not enough to compensate for the degree of loss suffered for workers in Sullivan County and throughout our central Pennsylvania service area.

Oil & Gas Industry Injury Lawyer

As the demand for crude oil and natural gas production has increased over the past two decades, exponential increases in drilling activity have occurred in Pennsylvania and other shale-rich areas across the country with little oversight and even less concern for workplace safety. The extreme increase in demand for crew members and equipment has led to undertrained employees and improperly maintained equipment being placed into service. The use of inexperienced oil and gas field workers and unsafe equipment has resulted in a significant increase in work-related injuries including pipeline explosions, blowouts, and deaths. If you have been injured during the course of your employment in the oil or gas industry, contact me right away.

Pursue Compensation for Your Pennsylvania Construction Site Injury

An on-the-job injury is one of the last things that anyone wants to think about. If you are injured at work, your world may come crashing down. A serious job-related injury will eliminate your ability to earn a wage, burden you with medical bills, and is likely to lead to ongoing, chronic pain and serious and potentially permanent disabilities. Your entire family will be affected. If you have been injured during your employment at a Pennsylvania construction site, you may be able to pursue compensation for damages related to the accident that go above and beyond the provisions set forth in the workers’ compensation system. If someone other than your employer’s actions or negligence contributed to or caused your injury, you may be eligible to pursue additional compensation for damages related to the accident. This is referred to as a “third-party injury claim.”

Employer Neglect Contributes to Construction Worker Injury & Death

One in ten construction workers are injured on the job each year and approximately 1,000 also suffer fatalities. Sadly, most of these injuries and deaths could have been avoided if proper industrial practices were in place. Some of the causes that I have identified as major contributors to construction work-related injuries include:

– INADEQUATE SAFETY TRAINING & CONTINGENCY PLANNING
– EMPLOYER’S NEGLECT TO PROVIDE EMPLOYEES WITH SAFETY GEAR
– DEFECTIVE OR POORLY DESIGNED EQUIPMENT
(LADDERS, ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT, SCAFFOLDING, ETC)
– THIRD-PARTY NEGLIGENCE

Construction Accident Lawsuits for Product Liability & Negligence

Your particular claim may involve one or more of the following: worker’s compensation, third-party negligence, product liability, and possibly other areas of negligence and liability. In some cases, you may never be able to return to work. The workers’ compensation system does not always provide adequate financial support for all work-related injuries. You may need to file a construction accident lawsuit to ensure that you and your family are able to meet basic living expenses now and into the future.
