New Jersey and New York Construction Accident Lawyers
Construction sites, more than other workplaces, have the potential to cause significant injuries to the victims of accidents on those sites. It is typically the responsibility of construction site owners to ensure that those on the site are reasonably safe. This responsibility includes the protection of construction workers as well as anyone else who might be on the construction site legally. When site owners fail to meet this responsibility, they may be held liable for accident injuries and damages.

Construction Accidents and Workers’ Compensation
Despite many of the provisions that are in place to prevent construction accidents, many construction workers still suffer injuries at a high rate on construction sites. Construction accidents can range in severity and type, including:
- Scaffolding accidents
- Fires and explosions
- Dangerous chemical accidents
- Defective equipment
- Falling debris
- Crane and construction vehicle accidents
Since most accidents on construction sites involve workers, injured employees may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits generally do not cover pain and suffering or all of the related expenses faced by an injured construction workers. Determining who is liable, including third party manufacturers, takes an experienced construction accident attorney.
