Morristown NJ Construction Zone Accident Attorneys Recover Compensation for Victims

Leading New Jersey construction zone injury attorneys

Construction zones are a way of life in New Jersey and throughout the U.S. The lowered speed limits, merged and often difficult-to-navigate lanes are an inconvenience for commuters, but a necessity for the safety of the construction workers who keep roads operable. Construction zones pose a safety risk for both motor vehicle drivers and construction workers. At Leonard Legal Group, our New Jersey construction zone accident attorneys recover compensation for victims of construction zone accidents, whether you are injured by a negligent driver, or from the dangerous conditions surrounding the construction zone.

Potential construction zone dangers

There are more than 20,000 construction zone injuries that occur in the U.S. every year. They occur in many different ways, with many different levels of severity, ranging from temporary absences from work to wrongful death. The compensation you can recover depends mainly on the amount of lost income the injury costs you, medical costs, and the pain you endure. Proving the cause of injury is as important as proving the extent of the injury. Our New Jersey construction zone accident attorneys uncover the circumstances leading up to your injury and help you decide on your best course of legal action. The most common construction zone accidents are caused by:

  • Inadequate lighting
  • Improper signage/warning signs
  • Dangerous or uneven pavement
  • Unmarked dangers or construction areas
  • Negligent drivers
  • Drivers operating at an unlawful speed
  • Overexertion
  • Exposure to harmful substances
  • Negligent coworkers
  • Dropped materials
  • Equipment design defects
  • Slip and fall accidents

Recovering damages after an accident in a construction zone

Construction zones have more dangerous elements than regular roadways. The heavy machinery, large barricades and dangerous equipment found throughout impose unforgiving injuries on the drivers exposed to their wrath. The injuries that result are often more serious, and at times lead to wrongful death lawsuits. Our New Jersey construction zone accident attorneys recover compensation for victims who are injured in a construction zone accident. Whether you were injured by a driver operating their car negligently, or the construction crew created an unsafe condition which led to your injuries, count on us to aggressively protect your best interests.

For workers injured in a NJ construction zone, is workers’ compensation enough?

Workers’ compensation was designed to protect the financial security of employees injured on the job. Unfortunately, workers’ compensation rarely covers all of the costs involved when you are injured in a construction zone. That is why you need an experienced New Jersey construction zone accident attorney. We take immediate legal action on your behalf and do not settle cases, unless you get what you are entitled.
