Pennsylvania construction worker injured by concrete form

A Pennsylvania worker was injured at a construction site in Pine Township after a 1,000 lb. concrete form fell on him. The Pennsylvania worker was injured as he was working on a housing project within Pine Township. The housing project, which was contracted by Heartland Homes, is located by Logan Road.

Another construction worker was reported to have witnessed the construction accident when it occurred. The worker stated that the injured worker had been attempting to move the concrete form without using a brace. The concrete form had then toppled onto the injured worker during this attempt to move it.

The 9-foot-tall concrete form was removed from the injured worker by other construction workers. They managed to lift the form enough to remove him from beneath it. The worker was conscious when removed but appeared to have an injured leg. An ambulance transported the worker from the scene to a hospital.

The construction worker injured during this accident may decide to file a workers compensation claim regarding his injuries. Workers' compensation claims allow workers to collect compensation regarding their injuries while they are at work, regardless of fault. The worker could also potentially make a complaint against his construction company if they do not adhere to OSHA standards for worker safety.

When Pennsylvania workers are injured at work, they may choose to file suit. A workers' compensation attorney may be able to help the worker to seek compensation for their medical bills and any lost wages from having to miss work. Sometime the injury may not be easy to recover from. In these cases, an attorney may be able to pursue compensation for the loss of the worker's quality of life.
