Responsible Parties in New Jersey Construction Accidents
When you are injured in a construction accident, you may be able to seek monetary compensation for your injuries. But the question becomes what parties can actually be held liable in the event of a construction accident. While the simple answer is the construction site owner, there are a number of other parties that may also be responsible for your injuries.
In order to get the full compensation from all of the responsible parties in a construction accident, you need to consult with an experienced New Jersey construction accident lawyer.
Who Is Liable For Construction Accidents?
The construction industry is one of the most dangerous industries for employees. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics, in 2012, there were 781 workplace fatalities involving construction workers and thousands of more involving serious injuries that left the workers unable to go back to work, thus incurring serious financial hardships.
If you were one of these unfortunate workers who was injured while working on a construction site, you may be able to recover damages against the following parties:
- The owners of the construction site
- The general contractor
- Other parties, such as subcontractors, architects or suppliers
And if you were simply a bystander or a pedestrian who was injured at or near a construction site, you may also have a case against the construction company for the injuries you sustained.
