Trenton Construction Accident Lawyers
Knowledgeable Construction Accident Lawyers Help Injured Victims Recover Full Compensation Following Accidents in Mercer County and Throughout New Jersey
Construction sites are among some of the most dangerous workplaces in America. Not only do they pose a serious risk of injury to the workers on site, but even visitors to the site, innocent bystanders, or passersby can be injured when an accident occurs. A construction accident can leave its victims with catastrophic, life-altering injuries that a person may never fully recover from. A victim of a construction accident may also have to face the prospect of massive medical bills, all while they are out of work and unable to earn a living or support their family.

Common Types of Construction Accidents in New Jersey
Of all of the types of construction accidents that happen every day in New Jersey, almost a quarter of them involve falls. Because of the nature of construction work, you may find yourself working on or around cranes, roofs, ladders, and the scaffolding that always surrounds building projects.
Aside from falls, other types of construction accidents include:
- Scaffolding accidents
- Ladder accidents
- Crane accidents
- Forklift accidents
- Roof collapse accidents
- Heavy machinery accidents
- Electrocution accidents
- Injuries caused by falling debris
- Building, trench, or tunnel collapse
- Injuries caused by heavy lifting
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Fires and explosions
- Exposure to hazardous chemicals or toxic substances
If you have been injured in a construction accident, the experienced personal injury legal team at KMHL&D can review the exact situation of your case and advise you on the best course of action, which might include filing suit against the party responsible for your injuries.
Establishing Liability for Construction Accidents in New Jersey
Establishing liability for construction accidents in New Jersey is often complicated by the exact facts of an individual case.
We can help you pursue workers’ compensation benefits if you are a construction worker injured on site. We will also thoroughly investigate your accident to determine whether you may have additional legal causes of action, such as filing a products liability claim for defective equipment or machinery, or a personal injury claim against a third-party whose negligence or recklessness caused your accident.
If you were an innocent bystander or passerby injured by a construction accident, we can certainly help you pursue a personal injury claim against those parties who bear legal fault for your injuries.
In order to determine liability in your accident, we will review the details of your case and consider the following factors:
- Who was responsible for the purchase, manufacture, and maintenance of the equipment that injured you?
- Who was managing and supervising the construction site at the time of your accident?
- Who exactly were you working for at the time of your accident – was it your employer or a third party?
- Given that construction sites can be large and complex, where exactly did your injury take place?
- What were the exact conditions at the work site when you were injured – was it reasonable that work should have been done at that time on that day given the conditions?
At KMHL&D, our Trenton construction accident lawyers will help you pursue compensation for your injuries and damages no matter the circumstances of your construction accident.
