Ocean County Construction Accident Lawyers
Construction workers are fully aware that what they do can be dangerous. But, that does not mean they expect to be hurt while on the job. However, errors and omissions that occur at a job site do occur, and the results for workers can be devastating.
Based in Ocean County, the law firm of Silvi, Fedele & Honschke has extensive experience representing injured construction workers throughout New Jersey. We seek full and fair compensation for every client, whether through workers’ comp claims, personal injury lawsuits or both. Our Toms River construction accident attorneys are proud to help rebuild the lives of those who help build New Jersey.
Handling A Variety Of Construction Injury Scenarios
Construction sites have many dangers, any of which can cause serious injury. Over the years, our lawyers have helped clients who were affected by:
- Scaffolding accidents and ladder accidents
- Falling injuries
- Injuries caused by falling objects or debris
- Heavy equipment accidents
- Crane accidents
- Faulty equipment
- Electrical injuries and burns
More Than Workers’ Compensation
In some cases, a construction worker’s only source of compensation may be workers’ comp insurance. However, workers who were injured by the actions of third parties may be able to file personal injury lawsuits to recover more compensation.
These are called “third-party claims,” and they can generally be made against anyone other than a co-worker or an employer. Some examples include:
- Claims against the manufacturer of a defective piece of equipment such as a scaffolding
- Claims against subcontractors
- Claims against someone who was driving heavy equipment that caused an accident
