Whether you are a construction worker or someone passing by, construction site accidents happen all the time in New Jersey.

At Sarofiem & Antoun LLC we know how stressful the time following a major injury or death can be and are here to help ensure you get the most money possible following your accident.
Common New Jersey Construction Accidents
Some of the most common New Jersey construction accidents include:
- Falling materials: Innocent bystanders and innocent construction workers can get seriously injured or die when loose materials fall from the construction site. Alternatively, they can also get trapped between building materials and get seriously injured that way.
- Explosions, electrocutions and burns: The unfinished nature of a construction site lends itself to serious fires that can injure workers and bystanders alike. Exposed wires and gas leaks are two of the most common causes of these types of construction accidents that can have a lasting impact on the victim.
- Falls: Making up almost 35% of all construction accidents, the unsteady nature of the scaffolding and ladders a construction worker must perform their work on leads to far too many serious and deadly falls. Additionally, the makeshift walkways and other passageways created for a passerby to get around a site also lead to many falls.
- Equipment issues: Heavy machinery is all over a construction site and a major cause of accidents and injuries. Big or small, construction site equipment can cause major injuries to even the most trained worker.
- Slip and falls: Different than falling from heights, slip and fall accidents occur when someone trips as a result of the loose debris and materials lying around a construction site. Broken bones and wound punctures are often the result of construction site slip and falls.
- Exhaustion: some construction site injuries aren’t the result of anything external but of the general taxing physical environment placed on a worker. High heat or extreme cold combined with long work days can cause exhaustion and dehydration in workers.
Injuries from these accidents can range from broken bones to permanent disability or death. Unfortunately for many, the serious nature of a construction accident means that their ability to work may be impacted for the rest of their life and this is a major financial hit that individual should not lose money over.
The value of your construction accident case of course depends on the nature of your injuries and an examination of the total impact the accident has had on your life. The good news is that unlike many other personal injury cases where the financial recovery is limited by low car insurance policies, most construction accidents are worth a lot of money and can actually be paid by the defendant. It is not unusual for a serious accident of this nature to be worth over $1 Million.
