Understanding Construction Accident Laws in New Jersey

Building sites are naturally hazardous places where mishaps can cause serious injury or even death. New Jersey has particular rules and regulations to safeguard construction workers and ensure they are fairly compensated in the case of an accident. Essential features of these rules include:

 

1. Workers’ Compensation: New Jersey law requires employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance. Benefits under this scheme cover medical costs, wage replacement, and disability benefits for workers hurt on the job. Because workers’ compensation is a no-fault system, payouts are not contingent upon the employee proving employer negligence.

 

2. Third-Party Liability: If the employers are at fault for the accident, injured workers may be able to pursue a third-party liability claim in addition to workers’ compensation. Common third parties include property owners, equipment makers, and subcontractors.

 

3. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Regulations: To guarantee safe and healthful working conditions, OSHA establishes and upholds standards. Employers must follow these rules, and infractions can be used against them in lawsuits for personal injuries.

 

4. Product Liability: An injured worker may be able to sue the manufacturer or distributor for product liability if faulty machinery or equipment results in their injury.
