New Jersey Construction Accident Attorney
Construction accidents are both common and generally serious. Workers move around in unfinished structures, using potentially dangerous tools and supplies, and at heights with little or no barriers.
Hundreds of workers are killed each year, in falls, explosions and other accidents. While some accidents are unavoidable, others are completely avoidable. When a person or company is careless, or simply acts with disregard for the safety of construction workers, they may be held liable if someone is hurt or killed.
Scaffolding is an area of frequent injury. It must be erected on a flat, solid surface. It should be free of manufacturing defects. It should be correctly assembled. When it is not, disaster strikes. It can collapse under people, on top of people, and allow heavy objects to fall on people.
Mission Statement: The essence of this firm is and will be the ongoing pursuit and expectation of excellence. Day by day and case by case, this conviction sets the standard for firm conduct, the upbeat tempo of the firm ethic and the bedrock tenet of client service at reasonable and fully disclosed rates.
Third Party Liability
Attorneys at the Law Office of John Tierney, LLC, examine every case to locate any and all parties that may be financially responsible. Workers' compensation generally prevents injured workers from suing the employer. But:
- Property owners,
- Marketers of defective equipment and
can be sued for maximum damages when their negligence leads to injury or death. This is known as "third party liability." A successful third party claim provides the victim with compensation above and beyond what workers' comp would provide.
Wrongful Death Cases
Unfortunately, our client is often a family dealing with the aftermath of a worker killed or seriously injured due to some other tragic but avoidable accident. We know no amount of money can replace a lost family member. But a wrongful death action brings compensation to loved ones to replace lost family income, companionship and other losses.
