Four Construction Workers Injured in a Construction Site Explosion at River Road Bridge over I-287 in Piscataway, New Jersey

Piscataway, New Jersey— Four construction workers were hospitalized on Friday following an explosion at the construction site of the River Road bridge. The blast occurred during the pressure testing of a gas line.

Thoughts on Construction Site Explosions

Construction sites have many hazards, so management companies must have safety protocols to protect workers. This includes safety training, safety equipment and gear, and working equipment free of defects.

Over the years, we have handled a number of cases involving pressure testing. We have discovered that defective products often cause these explosions.

Pressure testing explosion cases are complex and require the knowledge of trained professionals who have successfully held construction companies and part manufacturers accountable for accidents on the job site.

The job site will need to be inspected as soon as possible to ensure all wrongdoing is determined and those injured receive the compensation they may be entitled to.
