Get a Fair Recovery for Construction Site Delivery Accident

Q

Who pays for my injuries if I’m hurt by someone delivering supplies to the North Jersey construction site where I work?

A

The answer is probably not you. Whether you were hurt while working residential construction in Ridgewood or commercial construction in Hoboken, you are unlikely to have to pay for your own medical expenses if you were hurt at work.

So Who is Responsible?

Without additional facts, it is difficult for us to give you a definite answer about who should pay for your injuries. Typically, your employer’s workers’ compensation insurer is responsible for paying for your medical bills if you are hurt on a New Jersey construction site. However, this may not be a typical case if a third party, such as someone delivering construction supplies, was negligent and caused you harm.

If you do have a third party negligence claim then you may be able to recover for more than your medical expenses and partial lost income. You may also be able to recover the full extent of your lost income, out of pocket costs, and pain and suffering related to your injury.
