Morristown New Jersey Construction Site Accident Attorneys

Pursuing compensation for those injured on construction sites

Construction workers brave dangerous conditions in order to help our country grow. There are dozens of deaths and thousands of injuries that occur on construction sites every year. Unfortunately, innocent passers-by can be harmed from construction sites as well. At Leonard Legal Group, our New Jersey construction site accident attorneys recover compensation for construction site accident victims, whether you are injured as an employee or as a bystander. Our goal for more than two decades is  to recover the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Leading causes of construction site injuries in NJ

The construction industry is one of the most heavily regulated industries in the U.S. Unfortunately, construction companies routinely fail to live up to their responsibility to keep workers and the public safe. Although you are entitled to recover compensation for your injuries, you must still prove fault in order to recover monetary damages. The most common causes of injuries our experienced New Jersey construction site accident attorneys see include:

  • Falling objects
  • Failure to warn about dangerous conditions
  • Electrocution
  • Lack of security
  • Intrusion into roads
  • Inadequate training with equipment or procedures
  • Failure to keep premises safe
  • Debris
  • Improper use of machinery or equipment
  • Burns
  • Lack of warning signs
  • Chemical exposures
  • Lack of safety equipment

Determining who is responsible for your injuries at a New Jersey construction site

Liability in construction site injuries is often more complicated than just blaming the construction company. In many cases, it is in your best interest to bring in other parties that are partly or wholly responsible for the injuries that you have sustained. Our New Jersey construction site injury attorneys explore all possible defendants to put you in the best position to recover the financial security you deserve. There are times where equipment manufacturers or property owners are more appropriate defendants in these cases. Every personal injury case is different. We take time to discuss all of the possibilities of your case with you and decide how to best proceed based on your particular circumstances.
