The tools of the trade in construction can be dangerous, and workers rely on employers to be fastidious about safety. Unfortunately, employer or manufacturer negligence can occur, especially when it comes to heavy machinery and truck accidents. In fact, machinery infractions are listed among the top 10 violations by OSHA for 2012. If you have sustained personal injury as a result of unsafe heavy equipment or a truck accident, a NJ Construction Accident Attorney can help make the case for a monetary award.

- Seek medical attention for the injuries sustained
