Common Causes of Construction Accidents

Some of the most frequent causes of construction accidents in New Jersey including:

  • Negligent construction of scaffolding
  • Improper or careless use of heavy equipment or machinery, or allowing untrained/unlicensed workers to operate machinery
  • Improper storage of toxic or flammable materials
  • Failure to distribute safety equipment or personal protective equipment
  • Exposed power lines or electrical wires
  • Slipping or tripping hazards
  • Failure to use structure reinforcements
  • Removal of safety devices on powered tools/equipment

Options for Financial Compensation After Being Hurt in a Construction Accident

After you have been hurt in a construction accident, you may have a couple of options for obtaining compensation for your injuries. If you are a construction worker hurt on the job, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits from your employer, which can include:

  • Medical benefits, which cover the cost of medical treatment of a work injury or occupational illness
  • Wage-loss benefits, which provides temporary partial reimbursement of wages if you miss time from work or earn less income than you did prior to your work injury or occupational illness because of your injury or illness
  • Specific loss benefits, which offers financial compensation for the loss of a body part or permanent loss of use of a body part or bodily function, or for a serious, permanent disfigurement

As a construction worker hurt on the job due to a third party’s negligence, or as a bystander injured by a construction site accident, you may also have the right to file a personal injury claim to pursue financial recovery for:

  • Costs of medical care and rehabilitation
  • Costs of long-term care and support services for permanent disability or impairment
  • Full reimbursement of lost wages or loss of future earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • Reduced quality of life due to disability, scarring/disfigurement, or loss of life expectancy

Frequently Asked Questions About Construction Accident Claims in New Jersey

Who may be held liable for my construction site injuries?

While your employer may be responsible to provide you with workers’ compensation benefits for injuries you suffered on the job in a construction accident, depending on the causes of the accident you may also have injury claims against other parties, such as against third-party contractors whose negligence caused the accident, or manufacturers of defective tools or equipment that injured you, or the property or site owner who may be liable for a dangerous or defective condition of the property.

How long do I have to file a compensation claim after being injured in a construction accident?

If you are injured at work in a construction site accident, you should give your employer notice of your injury within 120 days of the accident to be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. If you need to file a formal claim petition with the state to pursue workers’ comp, you have three years from the date of the accident to file your petition. And if you have a personal injury claim against a third party, you have two years from the date of the construction accident to file a lawsuit. Reach out to the construction site injury attorneys in Cherry Hill, NJ, from DiTomaso Law as soon as possible to ensure that your claims are timely filed.
