The construction industry can place both workers and anyone who passes by construction sites at risk of suffering serious injuries or harm. The nature of construction sites means that people are often in close proximity to large, dangerous equipment, hazardous substances, and unstable sites, which can cause life-altering physical harm or even death when proper precautions are not taken. Whether the injury was caused by someone’s negligence or while you were on the job at a construction site, the law may provide you and your family compensation for your injuries.
Fortunately, the victims of a construction accident are often entitled to seek compensation for their losses through legal action. It is important to consult with an experienced Construction Injury Attorney because you may have rights against your employer, the general contractor, or the owner of the property. You may be able to assert a claim against a third-party or your employer through workers compensation. We know at Kevin M. Regan, LLC, that many people in Bergen County, Essex County, Hudson County, Middlesex County, Morris County, Passaic County, Somerset County and Sussex County and throughout New Jersey suffer from debilitating injuries and losses as a result of construction accidents, we understand just how critical this compensation can be to putting your life back together.
