Waterbury Construction Accident Attorneys

Serving Construction Workers Throughout Connecticut

Construction injury cases are never simple. In fact, more often than not, they are complex, both legally and factually. They demand comprehensive knowledge not only of the applicable law but also of the construction industry and operations. If you are injured on the job, and it is determined that a third-party was responsible for your injuries, you may be entitled to a claim for personal injury.

    What Are The Causes of Construction Accidents?

    Many accidents are caused by unsafe work conditions, improper use of equipment, a lack of safety measures -- typically a type of negligence.

    Common causes include:

    • Cave-ins from demolition or excavation
    • Defective equipment
    • Falling objects
    • Heavy equipment
    • Missing safety gear
    • Uneven terrain

    Some of the most common injuries suffered on construction sites are:

    • Falls from high heights, scaffolds, or ladders
    • Slips and falls
    • Burns from fire or chemicals
    • Electrocution

    What Damages Can You Collect?

    The injuries suffered in a construction site accident are rarely mild. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has noted that construction work is among the most dangerous in the country, year after year. If you are seriously injured on a job site, then you should be provided significant compensation for your damages.

    You may be able to collect damages through your injury claim to help pay for:

    • Medical treatments
    • Rehabilitative therapies
    • Lost or missing wages
    • Pain, suffering, and other noneconomic damages

    Construction Site Accidents Involving Employees

    In Connecticut, most employers and companies are required to purchase workers’ compensation insurance for all employees and uninsured subcontractors. As such, if you were hurt on-the-job as a construction worker, then you might be covered by workers’ comp. If true, you may not be able to file an injury claim for compensation. Instead, your benefits would be provided through your workers’ comp claim.

    The good news is the Law Offices of James A. Welcome handles workers’ compensation cases for construction workers as well as personal injury claims. Our attorney can help ensure you are provided a fair amount of benefits by the insurance company.
