I understood the rules and expectations for handling chemicals on our construction site, but some of the workers didn’t because the information was only presented in English. Is that a problem?
Yes. That could be a problem. Construction employers should make reasonable efforts to make safety information available in languages and formats that workers understand. The failure to provide that information in the appropriate languages or other formats could result in an accident.
If you have been injured in a construction chemical accident because other workers did not understand the safety protocols, or for any other reason, then it is important to contact an experienced New Jersey construction injury lawyer as soon as possible.
Your New Jersey construction injury attorney will investigate what happened to you and help you recover the damages that you deserve. Damages may include compensation for your past, current and future medical expenses, lost income, out-of-pocket costs, and other costs related to your construction accident injury.
These are not costs that you should have to bear alone. You did not cause the chemical accident to occur. Whether you suffer from an injury such as a burn, an illness such as respiratory distress, or another type of injury or illness, it is important to find out more about your rights and your possible recovery.
