Construction Accident Lawyer

Construction accidents injure and kill thousands of workers each year. From Burlington County, NJ to Manhattan, NY, hundreds of families are affected when tragedy strikes. In some cases the injured must file under workers’ compensation. However, in some cases it can be shown that a third party was at fault. Property owners, architects, general contractors, crane operators, and equipment manufacturers can all be liable for insufficient safety measures when an accident occurs. The general contractor and all subcontractors are responsible for providing the appropriate safety provisions to ensure that the construction site is reasonably safe. It is their obligation to warn of possible hazards on the site, to hire employees who will use caution while working, to coordinate job safety, and to check that appropriate safety specifications are being followed. Manufacturers of construction equipment may also be responsible for designing and maintaining safe products. Dangerous or defective equipment, such as scaffolding, power tools, ladders, and heavy equipment, may be at fault in a construction accident.
