A construction site is one of the most dangerous places to work in the United States. Fortunately, New Jersey labor laws protect construction site workers, by requiring construction companies to inspect each site and implement a vast number of safety measures designed to prevent the risk of injury to site workers. Unfortunately, sometimes these safety measures fail, and when they do, a serious accident or wrongful death can occur.
Construction accidents are incidents where there has been an injury or fatality, occurring on a construction site, often caused by third parties, or outside sources, such as vehicles. With over 23,000 construction firms in New Jersey, many working together on large projects, it is often difficult to determine who is responsible when an accident occurs.
Common construction site accidents include:
- Scaffolding collapses
- Nail and staple gun accidents
- Gas explosions
- Crane accidents
- Slips and falls
- Ladder accidents
- Welding accidents
- Cutting and brazing mishaps
- Structural or building collapses
- Vehicle collisions
Many of the serious construction site injuries occur on sites that have not properly implemented the required safety measures.
