- Construction Accident,
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics, there are approximately 150,000 construction accidents. Construction site accidents can be painful, severe and extremely expensive to treat. These types of injuries can include a long road to recovery with many weeks or months of lost wages. If you or a loved one was injured in a construction site accident, you should consult an experienced construction accident attorney to protect your legal rights and hold the right parties liable to get you the full extent of damages that you may be entitled to construction site accidents each year, of which roughly 1,000 result in death. Not every single accident may be avoided. However, if employers take certain safety precautions and safety measures, these statistics would certainly be less shocking.
Who Is Liable For My Construction Site Accident?
Under New Jersey law, an injured construction worker has the right to monetary compensation against the parties who are liable for their injuries. If you are one of the thousands of individuals who are injured in construction site accidents, you may be able to recover damages against the following parties:
– The owner of the construction site where the accident occurred
– Any other party who was involved in the project, including subcontractors, architects or suppliers– The general contractor in charge of the construction project
In order to determine which parties may be held liable for the damages you incurred as a result of your construction site accident, your construction accident attorney may need to look at the specific facts of your case. In some cases, more than one party may be liable for a construction site accident.
