Connecticut Construction Site Accidents
Construction sites will always have their share of hazards, but those who run job sites can help workers and passers-by avoid most injuries by taking proper safety precautions. Failure to implement and follow safety procedures leads to very serious accidents. If you or someone you love was hurt on a construction site in Connecticut, talk to a lawyer about your legal options.

Founding attorney Carl Anderson has handled these claims for more than 45 years, and he is joined by his law partners — who are also his sons — in providing strong advocacy for the injured.

More Than Just Workers’ Compensation
Many injured construction workers assume workers’ comp is the only available form of compensation. That may indeed be true, but it may instead be the case that you have the right to file a personal injury claim in addition to seeking workers’ comp.
If your construction site accident and resulting injuries were caused by a third party other than your employer or co-worker, then filing a personal injury claim may be a viable option. A few examples of possible third-party claims are:
- Claims against the manufacturer of a defective machine or tool
- Claims against a subcontractor for negligence
- Claims that someone else’s negligent use of equipment led to your injury
Our Norwich attorneys will fully investigate your accident, and if a potential third-party claim exists, we will advise you accordingly. Our goal is to get you the full and fair compensation you deserve.
