At Mintz & Geftic, we have a long history of representing men and women injured in construction accidents. Construction accidents often cause serious life changing injuries for victims. Most construction accidents can be avoided if contractors and employers followed Federal and State safety regulations. Unfortunately, in an effort to meet contract deadlines, contractors and employers often overlook the regulations resulting in accidents.
We examine the facts of every accident carefully and work with experts familiar with safety regulations of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Federal Safety Regulations, and the State Fatal Accident Cause Evaluation Agency (FACE) to determine how the accident could have been prevented. For example, simply shutting down the work site when weather conditions are severe could prevent accidents. Providing the right safety equipment and training can help to avoid accidents.
In 2015, Mintz & Geftic obtained an $850,000 settlement for a client who fell from unsafe scaffolding while at work. Mintz & Geftic filed the case in Essex County Superior Court, Newark, New Jersey, and it resolved before trial.
