When a construction project is begun, proper precautions need to be taken to protect the safety of workers. Unfortunately, falls still happen on construction sites. At the Law Office of Jeffrey I. Amtman, our attorney handles construction accident cases that involve falls from small to large heights. Falls can cause injuries that can be permanent and leave a worker disabled and unable to work. We can pursue workers’ compensation benefits for you, as well as explore a third-party claim once the negligent party has been established.
Any time a construction worker is up on a scaffold, ladder or part of a building, there is always the potential for danger. New York and New Jersey have labor laws that require certain safety measures to be taken, such as workers having harnesses and safety vests. However, these do not always prevent falls from happening. Contact an attorney at the Law Offices of Jeffrey I. Amtman in Englewood, New Jersey, to learn more about how we handle these cases.
A fall on a construction site can be a very serious accident and result in severe injuries to the construction worker or workers involved. Some of the life-altering and permanent injuries that victims may suffer include:
Traumatic brain injuries
Serious nerve damage
Spinal cord injuries
Neck and back injuries
Lacerations and abrasions from impalement on an object
Unfortunately, a fall from even a few feet may result in death. Our firm understands that families are dealing with many issues and attempting to cope with their grief after the wrongful death of a loved one. We strive to handle the legal issues involved with investigating the cause of the death and taking action with a wrongful death lawsuit if negligence is suspected.
We can assist you in seeking compensation for the losses you have suffered after a fall on a construction site.
