Worker Falls 30-Feet At New Jersey Construction Site

A 40-year-old construction worker fell from the roof of an unfinished building in East Brunswick last week. The worker died at the hospital the same day of the tragic New Jersey construction site accident.
Just after 1 o’clock in the afternoon, emergency personnel were summoned to the construction site. Police arrived at the scene to discover the worker had suffered head injuries in the 30-foot fall. The worker was not breathing when police and emergency personnel arrived. Medical personnel administered CPR at the scene.
After reviving the worker, the East Brunswick Rescue Squad rushed the injured worker to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick. The construction worker was listed in serious condition at the hospital late in the afternoon on the day of the accident. Law enforcement reports that the injured worker succumbed to his injuries and died the same day as a result of the workplace accident.
The construction site is at Summerhill Square along Route south. Currently the square houses Toys “R” Us and Babies “R” Us stores. The worker reportedly was employed by Lunar Steel of North Brunswick.
Construction sites often have many parties involved. An injured worker generally can file a worker’s compensation claim. In many cases, however, a worker may be injured as a result of the negligence of a third party.
An experienced New Jersey worker’s compensation attorney can evaluate the situation to determine of the extent of claim, or claims, to bring under worker’s compensation and potential third party personal injury claims, including those that may involve a claim for wrongful death.
