The good news: The residential and real estate markets are booming, and construction can be a great way for men and women to earn a living in New Jersey.
The bad news: The construction industry can be an extremely dangerous way to make a living when developers and contractors cut corners in order to speed up timelines and boost profits at the expense of worker safety.
Your Safety Should Not Be Treated Like Another Line Item
Cutting corners on construction sites by failing to properly train workers, provide protective equipment or maintain equipment is simply unacceptable. Such decisions place workers at risk of injury, literally placing their lives on the line in order to make a buck or avoid the “hassle” of following state and federal regulations.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury on a construction site or adjacent area, it’s important to understand your rights, including your right to compensation for pain and suffering, lost earnings and medical expenses.
A Team You Can Trust
The personal injury lawyers of Ventura, Miesowitz, Keough & Warner, P.C., have been pursuing the rights of injured construction workers in New Jersey for more than 30 years. We seek personal injury compensation above and beyond any compensation construction workers may be entitled to via workers’ compensation insurance.
We represent workers who have suffered injuries as a result of:
- Scaffolding and ladder accidents
- Falls from heights
- Falling tools and equipment
- Structure collapses
- Crane accidents
- Defective or poorly maintained equipment
Construction accidents often result in catastrophic injuries that require extensive resources to recover from, including traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and amputations. Our attorneys will fight for a settlement or verdict that provides the full compensation you need to be made whole again.
