Lawyers for Injured Construction Workers in New Jersey
Construction sites are some of the most dangerous workplaces in the country. If you have been injured while working in residential or commercial construction in New Jersey, our attorneys can help you enforce your right to just compensation.
Construction workers in New Jersey face numerous risks on a daily basis. From the risk of a ladder or scaffolding accident to the risk of being injured during a truck delivery, construction workers frequently get injured in incidents both related and unrelated to their specific job duties on the construction site.
We are committed to helping injured construction workers stand up for their legal rights. Construction companies, trucking companies, and subcontractors put their interests first. If you file a claim for compensation, they and their insurance companies will do everything within their power to prevent you from securing a just recovery. They do not want you to know the extent of your injuries and they do not want you to know your legal rights – because they do not want you to force them to uphold their legal responsibilities.
Seeking Maximum Compensation for Construction Site Injuries
At Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Hasson, P.C., we help injured construction workers in New Jersey fight for maximum compensation. We have decades of experience, and we have seen it all when it comes to construction site accidents and the tactics that companies use to try to prevent injured workers from securing just compensation under the law. Simply put, we know what it takes to win, and we have the passion, commitment, and skilled legal team necessary to win the compensation you deserve.
We Can Make Sure You Do Not Settle for Less Than You Deserve
When it comes to workplace injuries, there are several reasons why workers tend to end up settling for less than they deserve. These include:
- Not knowing the extent of their injuries. If you do not know what you have lost, you have no way of knowing what really constitutes “just” compensation.
- Trusting their employers and the insurance companies. In workers’ compensation, vehicle accident, and other injury-related claims, the insurance companies are not on your side. If they offer you a settlement, it is almost certainly going to be for far less than you deserve.
- Settling too soon. Many injured workers accept quick settlement offers and benefit payouts because they need money right away. But, there are other ways to cover your expenses in the short term, and if you settle now you will not be able to seek additional compensation in the future.
We do not want you to make these kinds of mistakes. There is too much on the line. After a construction accident, the simple fact is this: You are at a distinct disadvantage. We can help protect you, and we can help you understand everything you need to know in order to maximize your financial recovery.

Am I Entitled to Workers’ Compensation?
As a construction worker in New Jersey, there is a good chance that you are entitled to workers’ compensation for your jobsite injury. Workers’ compensation provides “no-fault” benefits to injured workers, and it avoids many of the steps involved in pursuing a typical personal injury claim for financial compensation.
But, (i) securing workers’ compensation benefits still is not easy – especially in construction, and (ii) workers’ compensation benefits are limited by law. As a result, it is critical that you choose a law firm that handles workers’ compensation and personal injury claims so that it can pursue all possible sources of financial recovery on your behalf.
