CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENTS

New Jersey Scaffolding or Construction Accident

Construction injuries are an all-too-common occurrence in the New Jersey and surrounding metro area. Construction is a dangerous industry. Many things can go wrong; from falls to explosions to malfunctioning equipment, and more.

Depending on the nature of your injury from a scaffolding or construction accident, there may be multiple parties responsible. For example, you could bring forward a workers’ compensation claim to get financial recovery from your employer.

Workers Compensation can cover:

  • Full coverage of medical costs
  • Partial compensation for lost wages
  • Potential disability benefits

If a third party, such as construction site owners, general contractors, sub-contractors, manufacturers of faulty equipment, or another third party was in some way responsible for your accident, you could pursue a lawsuit against them in conjunction to your workers’ compensation claim. This allows for a wider compensation to cover the extent of your damages.

These damages can include:

  • Past and future lost wages in full
  • Lost earning potential or ability
  • Physical and emotional pain and suffering
  • Physical therapy and additional health-related costs
  • Punitive damages in certain extreme cases

Time is of the essence in these third party cases. By their very nature, construction sites constantly change as work progresses. Evidence vital to a third-party claim can quickly be altered or destroyed. Seek the assistance of a construction accident attorney immediately to launch an investigation into the cause(s) of the accident.
