Construction Site Accidents
Eastern Connecticut attorneys representing workers who suffer injuries in construction site accidents
Construction sites will always have their share of hazards, but it’s the responsibility of those who run these job sites to take proper safety precautions to reduce the risk of injury to workers and others. When these procedures are not implemented or followed, very serious accidents can result.
If you or someone you love was injured while working on a construction site, or injured as a result of negligent safety precautions at a construction site, the attorneys of Anderson Trial Lawyers can help. Our attorneys grew up working in construction, giving them direct experience in the issues surrounding construction-related injuries.
Types of Construction Site Accidents
Construction accidents can occur in a variety of ways, including:
- Falls from ladders
- Scaffolding collapses
- Dropped tools
- Unsafe conditions and safety violations
- Heavy machinery accidents
- Dangerous or defective equipment
- Debris on the site
- Fire, explosion and electric shock
More Than Just Workers’ Compensation
Workers’ compensation isn’t the only recourse you have when you are injured on the job. If your injuries were caused by a third party other than your employer or co-worker, it may be possible to file a personal injury claim.
Third parties who can be held accountable in a personal injury claim include:
- Manufacturers of a defective machine or tool
- Negligent subcontractors
- A person whose negligent use of equipment led to your injury
- Motor vehicle accidents by vehicles driven by co-workers
Our attorneys will fully investigate your accident, and we will advise you if there is the possibility of filing a claim against a third party. Our goal is to get you the full and fair compensation you deserve.
