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 Morris County 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. Our experienced injury lawyers are committed to helping our clients secure benefits above and beyond workers’ compensation covering any lost wages, medical expenses, or pain and suffering.
