The Assertive Legal Counsel You Need Following A Construction Site Accident

Construction site workers are exposed to numerous risks on job sites. Work-related injuries can be severe and sometimes permanent or even fatal. The attorneys at Willis & Gresek Counsellors at Law represent construction workers and other blue collar laborers who are injured on the job. From our office in Toms River, we serve clients throughout New Jersey.

A work-related accident can leave a construction worker unable to work for an extended period. If the injury results in permanent disability, a worker may be unable to ever return to the same job and collect the same paycheck. Our attorneys understand New Jersey's workers' compensation laws and how they apply in situations like this. We work closely with injured workers to help them recover the full amount of benefits they deserve.

Workers Are Covered In All Construction Site Accidents

New Jersey workers' compensation laws protect employees in all types of workplace accidents. The question of fault is not an issue in workers' compensation claims. If you are seriously injured on a construction site, you should report the injury to a supervisor immediately and seek medical attention. Delaying reporting an injury or having an injury treated may negatively affect your workers' compensation claim.

Common construction site accidents include:

  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Falls from ladders and other high places
  • Power tool accidents
  • Construction vehicle accidents
  • Heavy equipment accidents

Under New Jersey workers' compensation laws, an injured worker can recover compensation for current and future medical expenses, a percentage of lost wages and benefits for a temporary or permanent impairment.

You May Also Be Able To File A Personal Injury Claim

Some construction site accidents result from negligence on the part of a third-party subcontractor or a defective product. In these cases, the injured party may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit in addition to seeking workers' comp benefits. We can help you navigate the legal process on both fronts.

Our lawyers strive to maximize the amount that our clients recover. We strive to put more money in their pocket than they would recover on their own, even after attorney fees are paid. We take these cases on a contingency fee basis, which means we only get paid if we help you obtain a recovery.
