Construction Site Accident Compensation

Most of our clients never want to get into legal battles with their employers, insurance companies or third parties. However, many of our clients are left with no other choice after suffering in construction site accidents. If you've been hit by falling debris on the job, you might have sustained serious injuries like broken bones, closed head injuries or even permanently disabling back and neck injuries. The financial recovery you could receive might be the only way you can sustain the economic fallout from the medical bills and lost wages. Perhaps this is the only way you can continue to provide for your family.

Causes Of Falling Debris · Workers' Compensation · Third-Party Liability

There are many causes of falling debris, including:

  • Defective workplace equipment: If a support, ladder or scaffold falls, debris can fall from a height and seriously injure those below.
  • Failure to follow OSHA standards: Lack of adequate safety precautions might be the most common reason for falling debris accidents.
  • Accidents: Sometimes there is no clear fault or reason for falling debris.

For any injury occurring in the workplace, fault is not an issue. Workers' compensation in New Jersey is a no-fault system, which means that even if you are the one to blame for the accident that caused your injury, you should still be able to receive financial awards from workers' compensation.

Often, for the more serious and catastrophic injuries, workers' comp does not cover the costs that you need to pay, not to mention the pain and suffering you have endured. If there is a third party involved in causing the accident, we can bring a third-party claim as well to increase your compensation.

Our attorneys have tremendous experience and skill in handling these complicated issues. We will work hard to get you the best compensation possible without unnecessary delay, while consistently communicating and checking in on your recovery throughout the process.
