Construction sites are notoriously hazardous by nature. Safety regulations and protective gear and devices keep many construction workers from harm. Accidents happen, however, and construction workers and visitors to construction sites are injured from time to time.
If you were seriously injured or lost a loved one in a fatal accident at a construction site in Ocean County or Monmouth County, you may be relieved to know that an experienced construction accident attorney can put his or her extensive knowledge to use on your behalf.

Serving Monmouth County — Construction Worker Injury Attorneys
Contact King, Kitrick, Jackson, McWeeney & Wells, LLC, to learn how our past experience can help you develop a compelling injury claim or lawsuit after a construction accident. We represent construction accident victims throughout the Jersey Shore area.
You may have been under the impression that a construction accident would be compensable through workers’ compensation. This is nearly always the case — but workers’ compensation is limited in scope. Many injured construction workers have also brought lawsuits against negligent third parties such as equipment manufacturers, property owners and equipment maintenance services. A detailed investigation often uncovers negligence of a third party (other than the employer). Third-party liability injury claims and lawsuits have helped many injured construction workers cover some or all costs.
A serious accidental injury results in a number of expenses and losses:
• Emergency medical treatment
• Ongoing medical care, perhaps including surgery
• Disability accommodations in the home
• Vocational retraining
• Pain and suffering
