Construction sites are inherently dangerous workplaces and, despite the efforts of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to implement 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, products manufacturer or property owner or others very well might.

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 attributed the accident to inadequate scaffolding or being hit with a falling object. To find out who is liable in your scaffolding accident case, contact the trusted lawyers at our firm today.
Electrocutions: Construction workers often encounter live wires and other electrical hazards such as transformers and underground wiring. If a worker is injured or killed from an electrocution, a number of individuals may be liable for the damages, including but not limited to the electric contractors and the property owners.
Elevator shaft accidents: Elevator shaft openings should be both guarded and supported with fall protection. When project managers 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 cranes, hoists, conveyors, or any other typical construction site machine or tool malfunctions, a serious accident is likely to take place. In these cases, product manufacturers may be liable for any incurred damages.
