Construction accidents in New Jersey involve any incidents that occur at a construction site. These accidents usually occur due to falls, electrocution, and incidents involving heavy equipment. There are several factors that can lead to such workplace injuries and you may be eligible for a considerable amount of workers’ compensation when injured on the job. Some hazardous work conditions leading to injury or illness may relate to unsafe ladders, falling debris, chemical exposure, improperly assembled scaffolding, and overall unsafe premises due to a lack of safety precautions enforced to properly ensure the safety of employees.
The vast dangers present at a construction site lead to many opportunities for severe injury and even fatal accidents to occur. These New Jersey construction accidents may cause spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, quadriplegia, paraplegia, fractured bones, and even death. Due to the severity of many injuries sustained at a construction site, hospitalization and long-term treatment and care are usually necessary. Although workers’ compensation benefits in New Jersey offer injured workers financial assistance, these funds may not be sufficient enough to help an injured worker in the way that he or she requires.
