Construction Site Accidents
Construction sites are home to some of the most devastating injuries in New Jersey. It is not uncommon for accidents at construction sites to result in fatalities. Serious injuries such as these require elite attorneys.
Schiller McMahon acts as counsel to injured victims throughout New Jersey who have been seriously injured or killed in construction site accidents. Our New Jersey personal injury attorneys take an aggressive approach in building a comprehensive case against negligent construction site workers and companies. Equipped with two former Assistant Prosecutors, our Firm is armed with the significant trial experience necessary to go up against big insurance companies and secure maximum compensation for our clients. Losing is not an option, ever. Simply put, we are results oriented.
State and federal laws require strict compliance with safety standards at construction sites. When individuals ignore or fail to comply with these mandates, our Firm holds them accountable for their actions, securing favorable settlements and verdicts on behalf of our clients. If you have been injured while working at or passing by a construction site, you may be entitled to receive compensation for pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages, other financial losses, psychological anguish, permanent disability or wrongful death.
Victims of construction site accidents can be construction workers and innocent individuals passing by the site. Common causes of these tragic accidents include falling objects, inadequate fencing and/or security, inadequate safety equipment, scarce scaffolding and construction equipment improperly operated on public roads or walkways. Most often, these construction site accidents involve negligence on the part of workers, supervisors and independent contractors assigned to the site.
Common examples of injuries that are sustained at construction sites include burns and electrocutions, falls from scaffolding, cranes, roofs and ladders, as well as brain and spinal injuries.
The statute of limitations to file actions in New Jersey is normally two (2) years; however, in some cases, it is only ninety (90) days. In addition to preserving your rights to file a claim for damages, it is essential that you retain a proven attorney to secure all pertinent evidence before it is lost or destroyed.
