Thank you for standing by me and believing in me. You never gave up on me. When the odds were against me and I felt I didn’t have a chance, you kept reassuring me not to give up hope. I still can’t believe the amount after the deposition. I felt I didn’t stand a chance. You are the most amazing person and I am indebted to you forever! To my hard working attorney

Leonard Law Firm went beyond the norm to ensure our case was settled. He was an exemplary lawyer whose services were a nice welcome considering all the aggravation my wife and I would have gone through had he not covered all aspects of our case. We are so thankful to him and his office. His knowledge of the case set our lives at ease. He was relentless until the case was fully settled and all was in our favor. Thank you so much. We highly recommend his office to anyone.

We Handle Injury and Construction Accident Cases
Construction workers do some of the most dangerous work around. Despite the multitude of safety regulations and required personal protective equipment, construction workers sustain injuries at alarming rates. Construction site safety is important, but it is not always given the respect it deserves.
At the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm, our New Jersey construction site accident attorneys understand the impact construction site accidents can have on injured workers. When you are injured, it puts your body out of commission, meaning you will be unable to perform the demanding work your income depends on for the duration of your recovery.

We work with investigators and experts to uncover OSHA violations, previous safety warnings, and other factors that may have been responsible for your injuries. We have extensive experience with all kinds of construction accidents and can help you through the recovery process.
OSHA Promotes Safety Tips
As a construction worker, you are at risk of being struck by a falling object or from flying debris. The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) has developed safety guidelines for people working in the construction industry. In order to avoid hazards, OSHA says to wear hardhats on the construction site, stack materials to prevent sliding, falling, or collapse, and to use protective measures, such as debris nets and toe boards.
When you are using power tools or machines, be sure to use safety glasses, goggles, and face shields where machines or tools that cause flying debris are in use. Also, be sure to inspect tools, including saws and lathes, to make sure their protective guards are in workable condition. When using cranes and hoists, avoid working underneath loads that are being moved, and do not exceed the lifting capacity of cranes and hoists. Additionally, be sure to inspect cranes and hoists to ensure all components, such as the lifting hooks and wire rope and chains, are in good condition.
When you are engaging in overhead work, secure tools and materials in order to prevent them from falling on workers below; barricade hazard areas and post warning signs; use toe boards, screens, or guardrails on scaffolds to prevent objects from falling; make use of debris nets, catch platforms, or canopies to catch falling objects.
