Working on a Bergen County Construction Deadline Is No Excuse

While everyone wants the construction job completed on time, sometimes there is more pressure than others to get the job done. You may feel the explicit or implicit pressure to finish your work as quickly as possible even if it means cutting corners or forgoing safety precautions.

However, it is important to know two things about tight construction deadlines. First, you are under no obligation to forgo safety precautions. Second, you may be entitled to a legal recovery if you've been hurt.

Pressure to Work Fast Is No Excuse for Unsafe Conditions

You can respect the need to get the job done quickly and do your part to achieve that goal without risking your safety or the safety of other construction workers. The few minutes that it may take to secure a harness, put on a safety device, or clean up the work site, for example, will not significantly change the deadline, but it may save you, or your coworkers, from significant injuries.

Call a Bergen County Construction Lawyer If You've Been Hurt

Bergen County construction workers who are injured on the job may have the right to recover damages for their work related injuries regardless of the reason why they were hurt. First, however, you must identify why the accident happened and who is at fault so that you can pursue either a workers' compensation case or personal injury case, as appropriate.
