Accidents happen. However, many accidents that result in construction worker traumatic brain injuries are avoidable.
Every New Jersey construction accident attorney at Hofmann & Schweitzer has the greatest respect for the hard and dangerous work done every day by construction workers. We take seriously the legal obligations that construction employers and manufacturers of construction equipment have to keep you safe.
Sometimes construction employers and equipment manufacturers fail to take certain steps for your safety, and you become injured as a result. These failures include the following:
- Providing appropriate safety equipment, including hard hats
- Testing construction equipment to make sure that it is properly designed, manufactured, advertised and used
- Failing to train construction workers on proper safety precautions, rules or techniques
If one of these happens to you, we believe that you have the right to seek recovery. That recovery may include workers compensation benefits to compensate you for medical expenses and lost income.
