Trusted Construction Site Accident Lawyer Serving all of NJ and PA
Working on construction sites can be very dangerous. However, the majority of construction accidents can be avoided by following simple safety rules.
As a Philadelphia construction accident attorney, John Mattiacci has represented numerous clients who have been seriously injured in construction accidents. These accidents have occurred on construction sites and on job sites throughout Philadelphia, the surrounding counties, and in New Jersey. John has represented injured constructions workers and skilled laborers in accident cases. These include carpenters, electricians, and iron workers. In addition to burns, chemical exposure, hearing loss, and noise exposure, these cases often involve:
Construction Site Falls
Construction falls represent a very large proportion of construction accidents, and they are among the deadliest.
Scaffold accidents are frequently serious, and they can be caused by a variety of factors such as loose guardrails or supports, or careless behavior by a worker.
Electrocution and Electric Shocks
Electrocution and electric shock accidents typically occur on construction sites – in fact, they are one of the top five leading causes of construction site deaths.
Dozens of construction workers are killed every year in trench collapse accidents, and many times that number are seriously injured.
Vehicle accidents don’t always involve cars – they also can involve construction vehicles such as forklifts.
If you or a family member has been injured in a construction accident in Pennsylvania or New Jersey, contact construction accident injury lawyer John Mattiacci for a free consultation. There is no fee unless we win your case.
John Mattiacci has focused his practice for years in handling construction accident cases. Our firm is very familiar with construction safety standards, including the safety standards instituted by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). These safety standards must be followed on job sites to help minimize the risk of injury. When safety standards are violated, the lives of workers are put in danger. As experienced Pennsylvania construction accident lawyers, we have investigated and examined construction accidents to evaluate whether any OSHA violations took place and who was responsible for any violation.
We are proud of the results our firm has obtained for clients in construction accident cases in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey. John has served as lead and co-counsel in several of these cases, including:
- $9 million recovery for a worker injured in construction site accident
- $7 Million for a union worker injured in a trench collapse
- $1.65 million recovery for a union sprinkler fitter injured in a worksite fall
- $500,000 settlement for a union iron worker that suffered hearing loss on a job site
These are just a sampling of the many construction accident cases John has handled over the years.
A Word from a Client
My husband was seriously injured in an accident. It left him a paraplegic without bowel or bladder function. For nine months he lived in a rehab hospital. We had absolutely no experience with attorneys – never needed one before the accident. The best decision we made was when we called John Mattiacci. I can’t even remember the first two weeks during his surgery and hospital stay. Needless to say, we were overwhelmed. Between going back and forth daily to the rehab hospital I was too stressed to think about legal matters. John eased our minds. He led our fight, taking the stress away from me. He was so helpful in explaining how the entire process works. He handled everything while I concentrated on helping my husband heal. John gave his all to our case. His heart is as big as his mind. We could feel his genuine compassion for our family. As an example, in one of our court conferences, after John presented, there wasn’t a dry eye in the room (including the other side of the table). If we ever have a legal matter in the future, it will be John Mattiacci that we call. We could not recommend him more highly.- AB
