It only takes a moment of inattention to turn a normal day into a nightmare at a construction site. People get hurt or die every day working on buildings. It’s one of the deadliest jobs, but it’s also one with the strongest protections for workers injured on the job if you have a lawyer to help you.
You can seek compensation for your injuries with one of our construction accident lawyers on your side. Morelli Law Firm’s construction accident attorneys in Englewood have helped many people get payment for what happened to them on the job.
Finding Who Is Responsible for Four Construction Accident
Personal injury cases start with an interview with you about the details of your case. In order to make a claim, we have to find out who is responsible for your construction accident. It could be one party or several parties.
Construction sites often have multiple companies and contractors doing jobs on the same site. All these companies have a duty of care to keep everyone on the site safe. Construction accident claims succeed when we can link someone’s negligence to your injuries.
Once we have your side of the story, our construction accident lawyers will investigate the facts of the case. This will help us determine who is responsible and who we’ll need to build a case against so that you can recover compensation.

What Could I Recover After a Construction Accident?
Construction sites can cause catastrophic injuries to workers that could put you in the hospital for months, or even disable you completely. Yet even if your injury is minor, you can pursue compensation for what happened. Some of the damages you could get money for include:
- Long-term therapy and rehabilitation
- Hospital stays
- Medical gear
- Lost wages
Workers’ compensation claims will usually only cover economic losses like these. However, should you choose to pursue a lawsuit, you could be eligible for non-economic losses like:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
- Mental anguish
Finally, in wrongful death claims, the family can sue for the cost of funeral and burial expenses, along with related damages. Calculating the real total value of your case is another duty of a construction accident lawyer in Englewood, and one we take seriously.

Building a Solid Construction Accident Case for You
All cases are built on evidence. Your story at the interview is one part, but there are quite a number of other pieces we can use to prove your story is correct. We need strong evidence so that when we approach the insurer, you get a fair settlement offer.
Some of the things we’ll do for you include:
- Determine the value of your case based on all the reports and records
- Prove the cause of your accident and all contributing factors
- Deal with all insurance company requests
With a strong case, we will try to persuade the insurance company to give you a fair settlement offer. If they refuse, we have the option of taking them to court and proving the matter before a judge.
How Soon Must I Start My Construction Accident Case?
In New Jersey, under NJ Rev Stat §2A:14-2 and NJ Rev Stat §2A:31-3, there is a two-year limit to file a personal injury lawsuit or a wrongful death lawsuit. This deadline is called a statute of limitations.
If you try to start a case after the deadline expires, the court will deny your right to sue. By reaching out to our Englewood construction accident attorneys as soon as you can after your accident, we can take steps to stop the clock on this deadline.
Also, by reaching out early, it gives us more time to construct your case before approaching the insurance company. There’s no reason to wait to reach out after you’ve had a doctor’s examination and you’ve recovered enough to speak with us.
