[GRAPHIC: Ask Super Lawyers, Who is responsible for injuries on a job site in Pennsylvania?, Attorney Joshua P. Geist responds, Thomson Reuters]

Joshua P. Geist: Many times, an injury on a job site is one of the most challenging and difficult issues to determine who actually was responsible. The obvious responsible party in Pennsylvania is the employer, however, in Pennsylvania, you’re not permitted to sue an employer for negligence, no matter how many violations or regulations they may have violated. Pennsylvania law only permits a claim for worker’s compensation, not negligence against an employer. It’s very important early on to hire an attorney who has experience and can investigate who was responsible, whether or not there are other parties who may be responsible for an injury on the job site.
