Construction Accident Lawyers in Atlantic City, NJ
Atlantic City, New Jersey, Construction Accident Lawyers
Construction projects are complicated and risky. Whether they involve a small project for a homeowner, a major commercial building project or the construction of a bridge or highway, all construction projects have a significant potential for error. When things go wrong on a construction site, people can suffer serious construction accidents, injuries or fatalities.
Protecting The Rights of Construction Accident Victims
If you were injured on a construction site or if a member of your family died in a construction accident, you have a right to financial compensation for the damages you have suffered. It is important to speak with an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
At The Law Office of Christopher A. Brown, our construction accident attorneys represent clients injured in a wide range of construction-related accidents, including those involving:
- Scaffold collapse
- Crane collapse
- Electrical accidents
- Accidents involving construction vehicles
- Falls from roofs, ladders or scaffolding
- Falls through or into holes
- Exposure to toxic chemicals
- Being hit by a falling object
More Than Workers’ Comp?
We will carefully analyze the facts of your case to determine your legal options. For example, if you are a construction worker, you may receive workers’ compensation for injuries sustained at work. You may also be able to receive money damages in addition to your workers’ comp payments if someone other than your employer was responsible for your injuries.
You may be able to file a personal injury claim if you were injured by a defective tool or were hurt because of the negligence of a subcontractor, for example.
Our attorneys represent clients in both workers’ compensation and construction accident personal injury cases, so we are able to advise you of your rights in both areas of law.
Anyone Can Be Injured In A Construction Accident
Construction workers are not the only people injured in construction accidents. When a crane collapses in a busy city or a tank of chemicals explodes, anyone can be injured. Our lawyers are well-positioned to provide legal help and advice to anyone injured in a construction accident.
Identifying Those Responsible
The laws regarding who is responsible for damages in a construction accident are complex. The liable party could be the subcontractor, the general contractor, the building owner, or the manufacturer of a defective tool, vehicle, or piece of equipment. In some cases, multiple parties may share responsibility. Our attorneys work to identify all possible sources of liability so that you can obtain the full amount of financial compensation you are entitled to receive under the law.
