Construction Debris Injuries

Debris on Construction Sites May Be Dangerous Let Our South Jersey Attorneys Protect Your Best Interests

Construction sites are notoriously known for accidents. All the hard hats in the world can’t protect workers from sharp blades, heavy equipment, tall ladders and falling equipment. However, construction workers should be able to reasonably expect that the site is kept free from debris — liquid spills, piles of metal or wood, etc. Workers who spend a considerable amount of time on New Jersey’s roadways, such as Route 295 or the NJ Turnpike, are potentially in harm’s way – every day.

Whether you fell and broke a bone, slipped and hurt your back or suffered any injury on a construction site due to debris, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain, suffering, medical bills and any lost wages. You owe it to yourself and your family to talk to a construction debris injury lawyer at Graziano & Flynn, P.C. today. We have won millions of dollars for injured construction workers and we are ready to work hard on your behalf.

What Is Considered Construction Debris?

There’s plenty of wood, metal and other materials used in construction projects on building sites. In the interest of efficiency, sometimes the debris can pile up for a while before it’s hauled away. In other cases, things spill, fall and drop onto every surface of a work space. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, there are specific guidelines for maintaining construction sites to ensure workers are kept safe from debris that can cause falls and other accidents.

  • Scrap lumber must be kept cleared from all work areas including in and around buildings, driveways and parking lots and stairways.
  • All combustible materials must be removed and properly discarded regularly throughout the day. If spills occur, they must be cleaned in accordance with health and safety standards immediately.
  • All rags, nails, and other construction waste must be disposed of in centrally located containers approved for that type of debris.
  • Flammable and hazardous material containers must be covered at all times.
What Kind of Debris-Related Accidents Are Common on Construction Sites?

Protruding nails cause lacerations. Sharp metal scrap cause cuts. Liquid spills cause slip and falls. All of these workplace accidents can be extremely serious. Depending on how bad the puncture wound, broken bone or head injury turns out to be, you will be facing pain and suffering, hefty medical bills and possibly time off work without pay.

Client Reviews
Attorney Graziano is one of the brightest and most compassionate professionals which anyone could work with! He is a great advocate and is extremely knowledgable of the judicial system. He made a very unpleasant legal situation a pleasant journey, and he helped keep things in perspective and in a positive light. I fully recommend him without reservation! Danielle
Robyn made the divorce process bearable by making sure I was ok every step of the way. She was a fighter when she needed to be and compassionate the rest of the time. The thing I liked best about her is that she was encouraging when I needed to get my end of the work done. She was reasonably priced and worked hard to get my case settled. I have since recommended her to 3 other friends who have retained her services. Ana Z.
It seemed like my case took forever but I trusted Ron Graziano and listened to what he had to say. Mr Graziano said that the insurance company was not being fair and that we should go to trial. The trial was very nerve racking however he eased my mind and killed them with proof and knowledge. My outcome of my trial brought me to tears of joy. I could never imagine such a good outcome. Listen to him, have faith and you too will be impressed. Robin
After a divorce, my ex-husband was not keeping up with his scheduled child support payments. With the help and knowledge of Robyn Flynn, I was able to resolve this issue. Being a single mother of three children, Robyn Flynn made me a priority. I felt respected by her always keeping me informed and encouraged. She was not only my lawyer, but a friend during a very stressful time in my life. I would never use another attorney other than Robyn Flynn and highly recommend her to my friends as a trustworthy, professional and experienced lawyer. Anna H.
