Parsippany Construction Accident Attorneys
Hundreds of workers are killed each year in falls, explosions and other construction accidents. While some construction accidents are unavoidable, others are completely avoidable. When a person or company is careless, or simply disregard safety standards, they can be held liable if someone is hurt or killed.
Years of Experience Handling Construction Accident Claims
Since 2002, the Law Office of John Tierney, LLC, in New Jersey has stood strong for injured construction workers and families with fatal accident claims. Based on our extensive experience defending these actions and protecting workers, we know workers’ compensation rarely covers all the costs incurred from fatal or serious work-related injuries. Our Parsippany construction accident lawyers are committed to helping you secure compensation above and beyond workers’ compensation, if a third party’s negligent actions caused the accident.
Pursuing Benefits Above and Beyond Workers’ Compensation
In New Jersey, most employees are covered under the state’s workers’ compensation system. This is a no-fault system that covers injured workers’ lost wages and medical expenses from work-related accidents. Because workers are entitled to the compensation without proving fault, there are caps in the amount of workers’ compensation injured workers can recover. Workers’ compensation rarely covers all the expenses incurred from work-related accidents.
However, injured workers are entitled to pursue civil personal injury lawsuits against any third party outside of the employer responsible for causing work-related accidents. Our Parsippany construction accident lawyers examine every angle possible to determine if a property owner, subcontractor, manufacturer or another third party acted in a negligent manner. We have access to industry-leading experts, including safety specialists and former OSHA administrators. Our legal team works with them to uncover the cause of construction accidents such as:
- Failing to ensure all safety standards were being followed
- Failing to hire qualified construction workers
- Failing to properly train construction workers
- Failing to coordinate job safety requirements
Every construction accident claim is fact-specific. If a general contractor, subcontractor, property owner or another third party acted in a negligent manner, he or she can be held responsible for his or her actions. Our personal injury attorneys prepare all of our construction accident claims with enough evidence to prove fault in trial. We are committed to helping our clients secure benefits above and beyond workers’ compensation covering any lost wages, medical expenses, or pain and suffering.
Standing Strong for Families With Wrongful Death Claims
Unfortunately, our client is often a family dealing with the aftermath of a worker killed or seriously injured due to a tragic but avoidable construction accident. 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. If you lost a loved one in a fatal construction accident, entrust our law firm to protect your rights with a compassionate approach.
