The damage has been done and you are left with questions. How did an ordinary work day leave you with a construction accident injury that has changed your life? Could the injury have been avoided? Possibly.
A New Jersey contractor can take relatively simple actions to make sure that construction workers are safe as possible on the construction site. Those actions may include:
- Making sure the first aid kit is well stocked and that emergency numbers are clearly posted
- Testing equipment regularly before using it, or allowing it to be used on the construction site
- Coordinating efforts with other contractors on site
- Encouraging a safe environment with well trained employees
- Following all applicable rules and regulations for safe construction sites
Sometimes these efforts can prevent injuries; however, other times injuries will occur despite the efforts by New Jersey construction contractors, property owners, and construction workers.
Whether a Contractor Could Have Prevented Your Injuries May Impact Your Recovery After a New Jersey Construction Accident
If you have been hurt at work on a construction site, then you should recover damages for your injuries. If a third party, such as a contractor who did not employ you, was negligent and that negligence caused your injury, then you may also be able to recover for pain and suffering.
