The Osha Construction Safety Standards Were Not Followed on My New Jersey Construction Site and

Q
The OSHA construction safety standards were not followed on my New Jersey construction site, and I was injured. Is the contractor or subcontractor responsible for the injuries that I recently sustained?
A

If you have been hurt while working on a New Jersey construction site, then you likely have questions about what happened and about who could be responsible for the injuries that you sustained.

Generally, the OSHA construction standards apply to all contractors who are doing work on the construction site. Additionally, the OSHA construction standards apply to all subcontractors who agree to do work or supply materials to the construction site, and to any suppliers of the construction site. The contractor has responsibility for adhering to the safety standards, even if he subcontracts the work. The subcontractor may also be responsible for the part of the work that the subcontracting business is responsible for completing.

If you have been hurt while working for your own employer, then your recovery will likely come from your employer’s workers’ compensation insurer. The amount of your recovery will depend on the extent of your injuries, the amount of your medical expenses, and the amount of time that you are unable to work at the wages you earned before your injury.
