Injured By Construction Equipment Or Machines?
When forklift accidents leave construction workers injured or killed, many people and entities share the responsibility of determining why the accident occurred. Employers, supervisors, landowners and manufacturers all have legal counsel ready to protect their interests in the event of an accident involving a forklift or other heavy construction equipment.
For this reason, it is essential that the injured worker also has a lawyer ready to protect his or her legal rights. Albert Buzzetti & Associates has been protecting the rights of injured construction workers and their families throughout New Jersey and the New York City metro region for more than a decade. We know the site safety regulations that apply in each state, and we work with independent professionals to investigate and present the evidence clearly.
If you have been injured, or have lost a family member in a construction equipment accident, don’t assume workers’ compensation or the insurance company will take care of you. Email us to schedule a free consultation. We will provide a full assessment of your case and help you see your best options.
Safety Codes Are In Place To Protect Workers’ Lives
Equipments, such as forklifts and cement trucks, are required to be inspected and in good working order at building sites. Inspections, licenses and maintenance are all the responsibility of contractors who bring people in contact with heavy construction equipment.
Our trial lawyers work to ensure that you recover maximum compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Lost earnings
- Lost potential future earnings
- Long-term treatment
- Pain and suffering
Workers’ Compensation Isn’t Always Enough
We handle workers’ compensation claims and seek monetary relief through third-party liability lawsuits when other people and organizations besides the employer are found to have been negligent.
If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a forklift or other type of construction equipment accident in New York or New Jersey, our construction accident attorneys at Albert Buzzetti & Associates have an excellent record of success at the settlement negotiation table and in trial.
All casework can be conducted in English, Spanish, Korean, Italian, Croatian or Greek. We have an attorney or staff member fluent in each of these languages.
