Construction Accidents Injury Attorneys Cherry Hill, NJ
Skilled Personal Injury Lawyers Help Victims of Construction Accidents in Camden County, Burlington County, and Throughout New Jersey
The construction industry employs about 8 percent of U.S. workers but has 22 percent of the fatalities—the largest number for any of the industry sectors. Each year thousands of American men and women are seriously injured in construction accidents. The injuries suffered by these hardworking people, such as paralysis or loss of limbs, cause workers to incur numerous hospital bills, doctors’ visits, surgeries and bills for medication. Many accidents are life-altering, leaving a victim unable to work or provide for loved ones. In a worst-case scenario there may also be a wrongful death.
Often there are multiple defendants (the property owner, the general contractor, various sub-contractors, the developer, investors, lessors/lessees of the property, and the designers, including the engineers, architects and manufacturers), multiple insurance companies and multiple defense attorneys involved. Sometimes the owner, developer and general contractor are large and wealthy companies with sophisticated legal teams and insurance companies dedicated to avoiding liability. That is why it’s important to have an experienced construction accident lawyer on your side who can act quickly to make sure that your accident claim is reported correctly and that important evidence is preserved. If the accident is not reported appropriately, the accident site or equipment involved may not be properly preserved for investigation. If the important evidence is not preserved, you may be prevented from proving your construction accident claim.
