NJ Construction Accident Lawyers
At the Eder Law Firm we know that construction accidents often result in serious and permanent injuries. If you or your loved one was hurt at a construction site, you want an attorney who can pursue all available compensation — employer-paid workers’ compensation benefits, as well as possible lawsuits against non-employer third parties.
Construction Site Accidents
A construction site has potential dangers at every turn. No matter how careful a person may be, working conditions, equipment and other people can cause accidents. We have represented carpenters, masons, electricians, heavy equipment operators and other construction workers, as well as truck drivers and others visiting a construction site. The Eder Law Firm can secure compensation in many scenarios, including:
- Falls from roofs, ladders or scaffolding
- Trip and falls or falls through holes
- Electrical shock, burns and explosions
- Trench collapse or building collapse
- Forklift, loader and crane accidents
- Power tool and machinery accidents
- Vehicle accidents, including travel between construction sites
Exploring Third-Party Claims
You are usually covered by workers’ compensation, regardless of fault. The lawyers at the Eder Law Firm will aggressively work to ensure that you get all entitled benefits: medical treatment, temporary pay benefits and any permanent disability award. There may also be third-party liability that provides additional damages, such as pain and suffering, that are not paid under workers’ compensation. Third parties may include a manufacturer responsible for defective equipment, or negligence claims against a safety officer, general contractor, subcontractor or property owner.
The Eder Law Firm attorneys are experienced in all types of personal injury and product liability litigation, including construction injury claims. They will aggressively pursue any third-party claims from a job site injury.
