Construction Accidents

Construction sites are inherently dangerous workplaces. Despite the efforts of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to implement and set safety guidelines and required precautions, accidents resulting in serious injury or death sometimes occur. While not all construction site accidents lead to personal injury lawsuits, ones that involve negligence on the part of a project manager, product manufacturer or property owner very well might.

Mr. Grosso understands the full range of damages that result from a serious construction injury and can help you recover the maximum compensation for your losses.

Types Of Construction Accidents

While any sort of accident that causes injury on a construction site can potentially give rise to a viable lawsuit, some construction site accidents are more typical than others. The most common accidents on New Jersey construction sites include:

Defective Scaffolding: Over 70 percent of workers injured in scaffolding accidents attribute the accident to inadequate scaffolding or being hit by a falling object. To find out who is liable and at fault in your scaffolding accident case, contact the trusted lawyers at our firm today.

Electrocutions: Construction workers are often exposed to live wires and other electrical hazards such as transformers and underground wiring. If a worker is injured or killed in an electrical accident, several individuals may be liable for damages, including electric contractors and property owners.

Elevator Shaft Accidents: Elevator shaft openings should be both guarded and supported with fall protection. When project managers and other responsible people fail to take one or both of these precautions, they may be considered negligent and held liable for any resulting injuries.

Defective Machinery And Malfunctioning Tools: When food processors, automobile repair machinery, cranes, hoists, conveyors or any other typical construction and workplace machinery or tools malfunction, a serious accident is likely to take place. In these cases, product manufacturers, distributors, marketers and sales forces may be liable for any incurred damages.
