When pedestrians and passersby suffer construction site injuries

As you likely know, the construction industry is always at work. Whether they involve erecting residential structures, building commercial properties or performing road work, construction projects are common in the Doylestown area.

Most of us pass right by these projects without much thought. We assume that they have been made safe for construction workers, so they should be safe for ordinary residents as well, right?

In most cases, construction sites in Pennsylvania are quite safe for pedestrians and people or vehicles passing nearby. However, we should all remain aware that the risk of suffering a personal injury in these construction zones still exists.

Aside from falling from an elevated workspace, residents experience many of the same injury risks that construction workers do. Below are several examples to consider.

  • Electrocution: Passersby may come into contact with exposed wiring or other electrocution hazards.
  • Unstable terrain: Members of the public may fall and suffer a personal injury if unstable ground in or near the construction site collapses.
  • Falling objects: A falling object strike is one of the most common causes of construction site injuries for people and property damage to vehicles.
  • Vehicles and equipment: Other personal injury risks include pedestrian accidents involving construction vehicles or motorized moving equipment.

We understand that no one means to harm anyone in these scenarios. However, someone else simply feeling regretful about the incident will not pay your medical bills. Our attorneys want you to understand that it is your right to seek a financial solution if you suffer an injury.

One of the most effective ways to accomplish this goal is by pursuing a personal injury claim. The compensation you acquire through a claim may cover your injury-based medical costs as well as other out-of-pocket expenses.

We invite you to learn more about construction site injury solutions by browsing the content in our blog and on our website.
