Help For Injured Construction Workers
Based in Nutley, the law firm of Piro Zinna Cifelli Paris & Genitempo LLC represents construction workers in Essex, Bergen, Passaic, Middlesex, Morris, Monmouth and Ocean Counties. The firm has handled these and other workplace injury cases for more than 40 years, and during that time, we have helped thousands of clients get the compensation they need to make ends meet after a serious injury leaves them struggling.
New Jersey’s growing population, coupled with Hurricane Sandy rebuilding efforts, means construction of new buildings and renovation of old ones is a constant. All of these projects mean there are more construction workers in the area now than there have been for many years. Unfortunately, a number of these workers fall victim to accidents on the job site. If you or someone you love was hurt when working on a construction site, talk to a lawyer about possible compensation.
You May Receive More Than Just Workers’ Compensation
New Jersey law dictates that an injured worker will receive workers’ comp benefits no matter who was at fault for his or her on-the-job injury. However, the system provides a limited amount of compensation, often not an adequate amount. If you were injured by a third party (someone other than your own employer), you may have a valid personal injury claim, in addition to your workers’ compensation claim.
Richard Grodeck and our other experienced litigators will examine your situation for potential third-party liability. If your accident was caused by, for example, a defective tool, a subcontractor’s negligence or poorly designed scaffolding, then you may have a valid claim.
