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:

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.

I could not have asked for an easier, stress free way to handle my legal business. I dealt with Mike mostly and it was a pleasure, but the staff was great too! Definitely a positive experience and a PROFESSIONAL I'm glad to have in my circle.

For thirty years, we have never faced a vendor-related contract failure... but it finally happened.We turned to the compassionate team at Anderson and Anderson, for our goal was a resolution that met the needs of clients and agency but didn't turn into something nasty or not reflective of our corporate culture.Chris and his team at Anderson and Anderson were professional, calm and supportive. Through a strong and guiding presence, they helped us successfully negotiate a settlement with a vendor that failed to deliver as promised.While it was a challenge to experience this process, Chris translated the legal-ease and clearly protected our best interests and that of our client. We could not have been more pleased or grateful for his guidance and support.I can clearly envision how he would protect those injured and in need of a skilled advocate. We had to go to court, and other clients may have to do so, as well. Ultimately it really matters who you choose to be your representative: someone who says "they will fight for you," or someone who has a proven record of walking into a courtroom to fight on your behalf.
