New Jersey Construction Accident Lawyer

New Jersey construction sites are a buzz of activity. With so much moving machinery, vehicles, and cranes, serious accidents can easily occur. Even if every worker does their best to operate the equipment as safely as possible, accidents can still happen. When they do, the injuries can be detrimental.

If you were injured in an accident on a construction site, a New Jersey construction accident lawyer from Shulman & Hill may be able to help you pursue compensation for your injuries. Call today for your free consultation or contact us online.

How Serious Are New Jersey Construction Accidents?

Construction sites use cranes, heavy machinery, and other potentially dangerous equipment to complete essential building tasks. Each construction worker should receive proper training about how to operate dangerous equipment while following safety best practices. Make sure to ask about procedures you do not understand and appropriately review the safety features of the construction equipment you use.

New Jersey construction accidents can cause injuries that permanently affect a worker’s health and well-being. Sometimes these injuries may be fatal. One of the major causes of construction-related deaths is falling. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), falls cause one-third of deaths in the construction industry. Even when falls do not result in death, they can still cause severe injuries such as spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, back injuries, and more.

New Jersey construction workers may be at risk for a variety of other injuries and accidents as well, including the following:

  • Hearing loss from noise exposure
  • Lacerations and puncture wounds from tool and machinery-related accidents
  • Crane and motor vehicle accidents
  • Illness from exposure to harmful chemicals like asbestos, particularly during renovations
  • Heat exhaustion
  • Concussions, traumatic brain injuries, and similar injuries caused by fallen objects. If a worker drops a tool from above or a crane releases a load too soon and the materials strike another worker below, it can result in serious injuries

What to Do After a New Jersey Construction Site Injury

If you are injured while working on a construction site, you should report your injury to your supervisor as soon as possible. Prompt reporting can help when pursuing compensation later. Make sure to seek out appropriate medical treatment and medical follow-up.

Due to the severity of many construction site injuries, you may need emergency medical treatment to set broken bones or immediate corrective surgery. In addition, you may need ongoing treatment like physical therapy or other forms of rehabilitation after your accident and in some cases, your injuries may require you to use assistive devices and receive help from others to complete daily tasks.

These costs can quickly add up. Besides the financial toll, chronic pain and permanent limitations can significantly alter an injured construction worker’s life. In cases where a party other than an employersuch as a contractor, subcontractor, or property ownermay have contributed to the cause of your accident, you may be able to file a construction accident lawsuit. A lawsuit can help you recover compensation for the harm you may have suffered.

Why File a New Jersey Construction Accident Lawsuit?

Every case is unique so settlement and verdict amounts vary. How your accident occurred, the severity of your injuries and your resulting losses will affect how much you may recover in compensation.

If you file a personal injury lawsuit, the types of losses you may be compensated for include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical-related expenses
  • Decrease in wages and earning potential

In the event of a loved one’s death, family members may recover compensation for the following:

  • Loss of support in the event of a loved one’s death
  • Funeral and memorial expenses

When our construction accident attorneys represent you, they will fight for the maximum amount of compensation you may be entitled to.

How Can a New Jersey Construction Accident Lawyer Help Me?

Construction accidents are one of our specialty areas at Shulman & Hill. When you reach out to us, one of our New Jersey construction accident lawyers will carefully review the facts of your case and help you understand the legal options available to you.

In order to determine if you may be able to file a construction accident lawsuit, our law firm will first conduct an investigation into the cause of your accident to help identify if a contractor or similar party may be held liable for your injuries.

This may include statements from witnesses who saw the accident, surveillance footage of the area, relevant medical records, and more.

As your legal representation, our New Jersey construction accident lawyers will communicate and negotiate with the relevant parties for you to pursue a fair amount of compensation.
