Construction Accidents

Employment in construction is one of the more dangerous jobs a person can have. Working dozens of stories above the ground, in unfinished buildings, using dangerous and heavy equipment is hazardous to even the most skilled workers. Construction accidents often leave victims severely injured and unable to work.

Causes of Construction Worker Accidents

Due to the nature of construction work, workers depend on each other and on the myriad safety regulations put in place. Unfortunately, however, sometimes the system fails and people suffer injuries or, worse, death.

Common causes of construction accidents include:

  • Crane accidents or falls, typically caused by high winds or defective cranes
  • Scaffolding accidents, from inaccurately assembled scaffolds or defective scaffolding
  • Falls from roofs, such as skylight falls or failure of safety equipment
  • Falls from holes in an unfinished floor
  • Electrical accidents, including electrocution or shock
  • Explosions or fires
  • Falling objects, such as tools, debris, materials, or ladders

The construction company and your employer are responsible for keeping your construction site a safe place to work. If you suffer injury on the job, your personal injury attorney can explain your worker’s rights.

Types of Construction Site Injuries

On-the-job construction accidents can lead to devastating injuries. These include:

  • Broken and fractured bones
  • Respiratory problems
  • Burns
  • Lacerations
  • Electrical shock
  • Eye injuries or vision loss
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Chemical exposure
  • Head or traumatic brain injuries
  • Hearing loss

New Jersey law allows injured workers to bring lawsuits against property owners, general contractors and construction managers. And a NJ personal injury attorney from Garces, Grabler, LeBrocq can help.

Your Personal Injury Attorney Can Help

If you or someone you care about was injured in a construction worker accident, contact an experienced NJ construction injury lawyer at the law offices of Garces, Grabler & LeBrocq today at 800.923.3456.

My uncle had some problems with meals at a Monmouth Count assisted living home. The home charged over $5,000 per month and he was not being offered food that he liked on many occasions and his complaints did not resolve the issue. I called Garces & Grabler on his behalf and they sent an attorney to the home to first speak with my uncle, then speak with the director. Within a few day, his dietary needs were met. Everything was resolved amicably and the law firm charged, in my opinion, a very reasonable fee for their services.

I was very impressed with the professionalism and quick turn-around time from all the participants from GGL that assisted me. I would like to especially thank my attorney Jonathan Kessous. His credentials are very notable he is one of four attorneys throughout the entire state of NJ certified by the NJ Supreme Court as a Trial Specialist in both Criminal and Municipal Court Law matters. My case was very serious and could have resulted in jail time or suspension of my license. Jonathan was able to resolve my case very favorably. I am extremely thankful for his assistance. I would also like to recognize and thank his Paralegal Jasmin Caba and his Personal Assistant Marianne Crisitello for their assistance in communicating and preparing me for my trial. They are a great team and I would highly recommend them.

I found my attorney, Mr. Kessous, to be highly professional, knowledgeable, friendly and effective. He was highly responsive to my questions and concerns and easy to work with, and achieved the desired settlement for me in regard to my traffic ticket. If I were in the same situation all over again, I would choose to work with him without hesitation, and expect that if I were to face a similar situation in the foreseeable future, I would contact him. I would also provide his name with the highest recommendation to others in the area for such problems. (I also found his assistant, Gabriela Vargas, to be quite responsive and helpful as well.) Thanks again for all of your help!
