Working construction is one of the most dangerous jobs in the United States today, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Consequently, it is not surprising that construction workers are highly vulnerable to serious injuries. Falls, slips and malfunctioning tools are just a few of the causes of the head injuries, broken bones and spinal cord injuries suffered by construction workers.

Why Construction Accidents Are Different
Construction accident cases are different from other personal injury cases. Any worker injured while working are entitled to New Jersey Workers’ Compensation benefits. However, these benefits frequently do not begin to cover the expenses related to an on-the-job injury. That’s why our attorneys look for other sources of compensation.
Although each situation and related insurance coverage are different, there is usually another source of compensation for construction accident victims. We look for coverage from:
- Third parties: Individuals and businesses who are not the employer but who were on site and responsible for the accident. Subcontractors, delivery truck drivers, and passers-by may have insurance that will provide compensation if they were responsible for your injury
- Other drivers: If you were involved in an accident with another vehicle while driving for your employer, you may be able to receive benefits from the other driver’s insurance if they were responsible for the accident
Of course, identifying coverage and obtaining benefits are two different problems. Insurance companies are reluctant to payout for claims and could easily deny or delay your claim. Our attorneys will fight back in pursuit of maximum compensation for your injuries.
