New Jersey Workers’ Compensation For Construction Injuries
Construction accidents account for thousands of workplace injuries each year in the State of New Jersey. Construction companies and site owners have a duty to inspect each site and provide a safe work environment for construction workers. But unfortunately, accidents still occur due to the inadequacy of, or failure to implement, these provisions.
If you have been injured on a construction site, you should contact a NJ workers comp construction injury lawyer as you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. The experienced legal team at the Law Offices of Dan T. Matrafajlo is dedicated to working hard in order to get you the benefits that you deserve for the injuries you have suffered.
Getting Benefits For Your Construction Workplace Injuries
As NJ workers comp construction injury lawyers, we understand that no amount of financial compensation can truly “compensate” for serious injuries or loss resulting from a workplace construction accident. In light of the high costs of medical care and other expenses that arise from these types of serious accidents, however, obtaining workers’ compensation benefits is often an essential part of the recovery process.
Serious injuries and health problems may result from the following construction-related accidents:
- Roof falls
- Falls from heights
- Crane accidents
- Scaffolding accidents
- Fires and explosions
- Electric shock
- Inadequate safety equipment and training
Unfortunately, in most cases, workers’ compensation claims often fail to adequately compensate the injured workers for all of their losses, including pain and suffering, future lost wages, future potential and future loss of enjoyment. If you have sustained a workplace injury, you may also be able to recover damages from a “third party,” such as a negligent manufacturer, negligent general contractor, negligent supplier or negligent property owner.
Our NJ workers comp construction injury lawyers will pursue every avenue of recovery to ensure that you recover maximum financial support to help you find security during the healing process.
