New Jersey Construction Site Falls

Construction site falls are a substantial hazard to construction workers and those who work on or near construction sites.  Construction workers who suffer from falls at a construction site may suffer severe and debilitating injuries.  Sometimes construction workers may be severely burned and or suffer a head injury as a result of a construction fall.  A construction fall can occur in various different circumstances and for various reasons.

 

Some examples of construction falls are falls from a roof, which may occur because the worker did not have proper protection, falls into a ditch, falls on a slippery surface or falls from equipment such as a ladder or scissor lift.

 

Because of the heavy equipment and machinery as well as the hazardous substances and materials on construction sites, falls on a construction site can lead to catastrophic injuries and even death.  Contractors, sub-contractors and the premises owners have a duty to ensure that their property and work place are safe and free from hazards which may cause a construction fall.

 

Sometimes an individual who suffers from a construction fall may be entitled to workers compensation benefits.  Under New Jersey law, the injured worker who receives workers compensation benefits will be precluded from filing a lawsuit against their employer.  However, on a construction site, often times many different parties are involved.  Those parties may include a contractor, sub-contractor or a landowner.  Though one party may be paying workers compensation benefits and therefore cannot have suit filed against them, the other parties which were working on the construction site, may be sued if an investigation reveals that one of those particular parties bear responsibility for the accident which took place.  Obviously, such a determination is a factual and legal analysis, which will vary on a case-by-case basis.  It is therefore important to contact one of our construction accident attorneys if you or someone you know has suffered from a construction fall.

    Michael Noonan was an absolute pleasure to work with. He handled my case with professionalism and care. Mr. Noonan even went above and beyond to assist in a matter that was unrelated to my case. I would work with him again in a heart beat!
