Construction Accidents

New Jersey Construction Accident Attorney

A construction site is by nature a hazardous worksite. For this reason, there are numerous laws and regulations intended to protect construction workers and visitors to construction zones and ensure the safest possible working environment.

However, in spite of the many efforts to prevent accidents and serious injuries, they still occur. If you were injured or your family member died at a construction site in New Jersey, please discuss your potential construction accident case with an experienced lawyer. While it may seem that contacting a lawyer can wait, the best opportunity to protect evidence and determine what really happened is in the first hours or days after an accident. Later, key evidence may be difficult to impossible to find and reconstruct. Eyewitness accounts may be less reliable after time goes by.

Attorney Evan M. Foulke of the Foulke Law Firm offers a free initial consultation about how you should proceed after a construction accident, such as the following:

  • Fall from a ladder
  • Fall from a roof
  • Scaffolding collapse
  • Trench collapse
  • Excavation
  • Explosion
  • Crane accident
  • Forklift accident
  • Truck accident at a construction site

We will look into every source of possible compensation for your injuries. For instance, there may be a claim against an equipment manufacturer or subcontractor whose negligence contributed to, or caused the injuries.

Attorney Evan M. Foulke is an experienced trial lawyer with a background in insurance defense. With this background he can see a case from the perspective of the insurance company, and has an idea of their strategies. With any case, Evan Foulke will conduct a thorough investigation, enlisting the help of experts when necessary. Our law firm will interview eyewitnesses, take photographs, and obtain the necessary documentation.

Additionally, we will keep close tabs on your physical recovery. We will determine your present and future costs for your medical expenses, lost income and pain and suffering. Then we will present a persuasive case to the relevant insurance company, or insurance companies. If they refuse to treat you fairly, we will not hesitate to go to trial on your behalf.
