As a law firm highly experienced in these types of cases, we examine all evidence including but not limited to the project contracts to determine if one or all of these parties or subcontractors is liable for your injuries.
Our client was an electrician working on the construction of a new hospital. In order to access the worksite safely, workers had to cross a muddy area that had been filled in with rocks. Over time, areas of rocks had deteriorated and mud built up.
Our client walked across the rocks, fell due to slippery mud, and sustained a severe shoulder injury. Our client was permanently disabled because of this accident.
We were able to get weekly construction photos showing the buildup of mud over time and brought suit against the general contractor that was responsible for keeping the workplace safe.
Additionally we were able to achieve a very substantial recovery for our client.
Our client was a sheetrock subcontractor who was injured when he fell from scaffolding while spackling the ceiling at the construction site of an Essex County fitness center.
The scaffolding was outfitted with caster wheels which began to roll as our client performed his work. Unfortunately, there was a hole in the floor and our client fell and suffered a serious injury when the leg of the scaffolding hit the hole.
Our office hired an engineer to inspect the construction site. We were able to achieve a valuable recovery for our client after the engineer documented multiple safety code violations at the site.
