If you have been hurt or lost a loved one in a New Jersey or New York construction accident then you may be entitled to damages for your physical pain, financial loss, and grief.
Construction sites are dangerous places, particularly when there are moving vehicles. The impact of an accident involving an excavator, a forklift, a crane, a truck, or any other type of motor vehicle can be devastating.
The law allows injured construction workers or the families of those killed in construction accidents to recover damages for their losses. With the help of a New York or New Jersey construction-accident attorney, workers who have been hurt in construction accidents may recover damages that include compensation for past, current, and future:
- Medical bills
- Rehabilitation costs
- Out-of-pocket expenses, including funeral costs, if applicable
- Lost income
- Pain and suffering
It is a construction employer's legal responsibility to ensure construction-site safety. If your employer's failure to comply with industry safety regulations or guidelines resulted in an injury or fatality then your employer may be liable for the damages described above.
