Construction Injury Accident Attorney Serving PA and NJ

Construction sites are considered one of the most dangerous work locations in the country. If you were injured working construction and believe that a contractor, subcontractor or dangerous piece of equipment is to blame, we can help you seek just compensation.

Residential and commercial construction workers in New Jersey and Pennsylvania face countless risks on a day-to-day basis. While contractors and subcontractors are supposed to maintain safe job sites and avoid putting workers at risk for serious injuries, we know that far too many companies fall far short of meeting these obligations. The attorneys at the Law Office of Blake W. Rush have secured millions of dollars in compensation for clients who have been injured on construction sites in New Jersey and Pennsylvania*

While workers’ compensation laws limit the benefits that construction workers can recover through their employers, they do not limit construction workers’ rights to seek compensation from other companies. As a result, if you have been injured in any type of construction accident, it is critical you hire an experienced attorney to conduct a thorough investigation and advise you of your legal rights.

Common Causes of Construction Site Injuries

The following are all common causes of construction site injuries that may entitle workers to seek compensation from contractors, subcontractors, manufacturers and other third parties:

  • Defective tools and equipment
  • Exposure to harmful dust and chemicals
  • Falling objects and flying debris
  • Faulty electrical wiring and other electrical hazards
  • Faulty ladders and scaffolding
  • Lack of temporary safety railings and other fall risks
  • Truck unloading accidents
  • Workers’ negligent use of tools, equipment and machinery
Do not worry if you are not sure who (or what) is to blame for your injuries. When we take your case, we will start by conducting a thorough investigation in order to identify each of the parties that may be responsible for your medical bills and other losses.

Recovering Your Losses After a Construction Accident

If you have suffered a serious injury on a construction site, your losses are likely to be far greater than you currently realize. In fact, this is one of the biggest issues that all types of accident victims face when they try to apply for workers’ compensation (without also pursuing a third-party claim) or deal with the insurance companies on their own. If someone else is to blame for your injuries, it is critically important to make sure that you understand the full extent of your losses so that you do not end up paying for someone else’s mistake for years to come. As the victim of a construction accident, your losses may include:

  • Current medical bills
  • Future medical expenses
  • Prescription costs
  • Lost wages
  • Inability to work in the future
  • Pain and suffering
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Other losses
At the Law Office of Blake W. Rush, we can help make sure you do not leave money on the table.
