Construction sites frequently have workers, contractors and subcontractors from many different entities working on a project. Heavy machinery and tools may malfunction due to a product defect. Workers injured due to the negligence of someone other than their direct employer or a co-worker with the same company may sue the "third party" to recover in a personal injury claim.
While Connecticut's workers' compensation system provides a fast-track path to provide accident victims with important benefits, many seriously injured workers find that the benefits are just not enough to cover all of the expenses and losses that can flow from a construction accident.
We investigate all possible sources of recovery, including general contractors and manufacturers of equipment that has malfunctioned at a work site to maximize compensation for our valued clients.
We are prepared to investigate all manners of construction site harms, including:
- Crane accidents
- Forklift accidents
- Scaffolding accidents
- Dangerous or defective tools, machinery or equipment
- Fall from heights
- Falling objects
