Know your rights following a construction site accident

Residents of Burlington County are used to seeing orange barrels on the roads this time of year, as well as cranes, forklifts and scaffolding around construction sites. However, most people can appreciate that whether they are repaving a street or building a home, construction workers may be at risk.

For example, a worker could be injured in a scaffolding fall or ladder fall. They may be injured in a forklift accident, electrical accident, crane accident or machinery accident. There are almost innumerable ways that accidents can occur at construction sites. Injured construction workers may find their lives have suddenly become very difficult. First, they are trying to recover physically from the injuries they suffered. Because of their injuries, they may not be able to work. Without being able to earn their normal wages, they may wonder how they are going to afford their medical expenses and living expenses.

Fortunately, construction workers in such situations may be able to apply for workers' compensation benefits. These benefits are often the financial safety net injured construction workers need until they can return to work. They ensure that the injured worker's medical needs are taken care off and that the worker's wages will be paid while they recover.

However, applying for worker's compensation doesn't always mean a worker will automatically be awarded benefits. Sometimes, claims are denied or other disputes arise, necessitating an appeal. At our law firm, we know the ins-and-outs of the New Jersey workers' compensation system. We use our knowledge and experience to attempt to protect the rights of our clients who have been injured on-the-job.
