Our Attorneys Know How To Build Strong Legal Cases
Construction sites can be very dangerous. Construction workers constantly encounter hazardous conditions every single day. That's why injuries at construction sites continue to be a serious problem throughout Connecticut and Massachusetts, despite efforts to prevent such accidents.
Many injured construction workers receive workers' compensation or have medical bills paid through their health insurance and state or federal programs. But that compensation often isn't enough to cover all the expenses associated with construction accidents, including medical bills, lost wages and more.
Our dedicated, construction accident lawyers have years of experience handling cases involving many types of personal injury accidents at construction sites, including:
- Non-compliance with OSHA safety standards
- Defective machinery and equipment
- Asbestos exposure (mesothelioma)
We also work on wrongful death cases with families who have lost a loved one in a construction accident in Connecticut or Massachusetts. Whatever type of accident you're dealing with, contact us as soon as possible. You deserve to be compensated for your loss.
Unfortunately, many large and small companies and corporations only look at the "bottom line" when it comes to recognizing the importance of offering fair compensation for employees hurt on the job. That's why workers' compensation laws exist - to protect employees. But these same laws also protect the company and create fixed limits on benefit amounts disbursed in workers' compensation claims.
We thoroughly understand workers' compensation laws in Connecticut and Massachusetts. As a result, we can assist you or your loved one in recovering damages commensurate to the injuries sustained. In many cases, when workers' compensation falls short, often a third-party personal injury lawsuit can be levied against negligent parties that are in association with the employer.
Industrial plants, construction sites and industrial machinery can create significant potential for injury or death, both for the people who work there and operate machinery and those who live or travel nearby. We usually trust and hope that such industrial settings are operated safely and in accordance with all applicable laws and safety standards. Sometimes, however, safety regulations are violated or overlooked, and the results can be catastrophic.
Even if you are covered by workers' compensation, the circumstances of an industrial accident may give rise to a claim against a party other than the employer. We know how to handle these cases and find the evidence you need to build a successful legal case.
Many industrial accidents involve third party claims, meaning the person who caused your accident works for another company. These cases often involve subcontractors, equipment manufacturers, property owners and more.
You may be entitled to compensation if you have been injured in any of the following incidents:
- Industrial explosions
- Industrial release of toxic chemicals
- Industrial machinery malfunctions
- Factory accidents
- Equipment injuries
