Construction Accidents in Hackensack, NJ
Construction Accidents are typically workplace accidents. What sets these accidents apart from typical workplace injuries is the construction site setting itself. Construction sites have many moving parts and people, heavy equipment is frequently being operated at these locations, and other potentially hazardous operations are constant and ongoing. It is no wonder that many workplace accidents occur at construction sites. Causes of injuries in these case are varied, but can include:
- Ladder Accidents
- Falling material/equipment
- Slip and Falls
- Flooring and other structural collapses
- Scaffolding accidents
- Chemical burns and other exposure to toxic chemicals
- Mishandled or faulty power tools
- Crane accidents
- Heavy equipment injuries
- Falls from heights
- Security issues
- Defective Equipment/Machinery
If you are injured working on a construction site, your first remedy will typically be workers’ compensation. But with these types of accidents, there are often additional avenues you can pursue for compensation. You may be able to pursue a third-party personal injury claim against a property owner, subcontractor, architect, developer, manufacturer of a defective product or a number of other responsible parties.
How The Reinartz Law Firm Can Help
The Reinartz Law Firm can review the circumstances surrounding your construction accident to determine the most effective way to proceed. If you receive workers’ compensation, you may be able to bring a third-party claim as mentioned above. If you aren’t covered by workers’ compensation, there may still may exist a separate personal injury claim to recover compensation for your injuries. Our experienced construction accident lawyers will leave to stone unturned in attempting to obtain you full and fair compensation for your injuries. We handle these claims from the earliest stages of negotiation with insurance companies and medical providers, to trial before a court of law, if necessary.
