Help for Victims of New Jersey Construction Site Accidents
If you work on a construction site, you understand the risks you take while doing your job, no matter how careful you are to follow all safety measures and use all protective equipment offered to you. Construction workers in the U.S. are nevertheless more likely than workers in any other profession to be injured or killed on the job. Unfortunately, getting hurt on the job is even more devastating as a construction worker than a worker in many other fields, since you depend on being able-bodied in order to find work and provide for yourself and your family.
Safety lapses lead to serious injuries for workers
Frequently, construction job site injuries can be traced back to a willful failure to abide by critical safety rules and regulations committed by site management, general or subcontractors, or third parties operating on the construction site. If you get hurt because your employer could not spend the time or money to look out for your well-being on the job site, you deserve to be paid for your injuries. The activities on construction work sites that most often lead to injury are often the work site activities that are covered by the most extensive regulations, including:
- Excavation and trench-digging accidents
- Crane accidents
- Scaffolding collapses or falls from scaffolding
- Ladder falls
- Confined or enclosed-space accidents
