Experienced And Ready To Advocate For Construction Accident Victims
Across New Jersey, construction sites are building the next generation of infrastructure for burgeoning commerce, industry and domestic life. While the site of towering cranes and other heavy machinery provide excitement for and promise of a better economy, numerous risks exist for the men and women who work in these dangerous environments.
The attorneys at Lerner, Piermont & Riverol, P.A., in Jersey City, protect the rights of construction workers throughout the state when they become victims of workplace negligence. Established in 1972, our law firm has an experienced and diverse team. We are client-focused, compassionate for them and persistent in securing the compensation you deserve.
Negligent Employers Can Cause Workplace Dangers
Our experienced team is client-focused and persistent. Through the years, we have helped clients and their families take legal action, confronting employers and corporations responsible for construction work dangers and injuries. We work on many cases related to:
- OSHA violations
- Collapsed scaffolding
- Falling objects
- Forklift, crane and backhoe accidents
- Burns and toxic exposure
Construction site dangers are ever-present. Whether operating heavy machinery, completing a job atop scaffolding or working with explosives and other hazardous materials, the dangers are part of the job. However, employers and those overseeing construction sites have the responsibility to provide safe working environments. When they don’t, we can help you seek the workers’ compensation benefits you deserve.
Establishing Liability, Holding Negligent Parties Accountable
It’s not uncommon for negligent employers or careless contractors to deny responsibility associated with an accident. Our attorneys work to expose negligence and hold employers and contractors financially accountable. We work with private investigators, accident reconstructionists, engineers and other experts to determine the cause of the construction site accident. Our lawyers also collect eyewitness testimony and use computer animation in exhibits to demonstrate to jurors how the accident happened and how it could have been prevented.
OSHA Violations And Our Pledge To Help You
If you believe your accident was caused by OSHA violations or other safety and labor regulations, your employer may try to convince you to settle without filing a claim. In some instances, your employer may try to intimidate you as well. Likewise, if your injuries involved negligence on the part of a third-party contractor, its insurance company may try to convince you to settle out of court to avoid paying the full value of your injuries. As seasoned litigators, we will do our best to make sure this doesn’t happen.
