In New Jersey, construction workers are injured from work-related accidents every day. The top causes of construction-related injuries and fatalities are falls, being struck-by an object, electrocution, and being caught between objects. However, the majority of these work site accidents are entirely avoidable.
While construction work is very dangerous, we believe many of the injuries that come from construction work are completely avoidable. At Judd Shaw Injury Law, we also believe those in charge who place workers at risk and fail to keep their workers safe must be held accountable.
If you were injured during the course of your employment, then your compensation may be subject to the no-fault-based system of workers’ compensation. You also have the right to bring a third-party claim against those responsible for your injuries, which were caused by negligent acts or failures to act. At Judd Shaw Injury Law, we aggressively protect the rights of our clients against general contractors, property owners, equipment manufacturers, or other subcontractors working on the site.
