Connecticut Construction Site Accidents

Construction sites are arguably the most dangerous work sites due to the type of work being done. Construction involves heavy duty tools and equipment and without the property safety precautions, accidents can result in devastating injuries. The site owner or manager is often responsible for making sure the workers are fully trained and provided with the proper safety equipment. Unfortunately, negligence of construction site owners happens and workers can suffer because of it. Some of the common types of construction accidents include: Slip & fall, trip & fall and other falls Machinery accidents Crane accidents Electrical accidents Scaffolding accidents Chemical accidents Falling object accidents There are countless causes and reasons behind the occurrence of these accidents, but as an injured worker you can fight for compensation. Defective products and equipment is one of the leading causes of an accident. Whether it is a defective ladder, power tool or piece of safety equipment, the potential injuries are endless. The most common type of construction accident is a fall; 300 out of 1,000 construction worker fatalities each year are due to falls. It is imperative to have the proper harness equipment and protection to keep workers safe on a construction site. If you have been injured in a construction accident, it is important that you seek medical attention right away. In order to pursue damages, you will need to report the accident to your employer. After doing so, you need to preserve evidence of the accident by taking photographs and collecting witness information.

What does worker's compensation cover? I want to know before I get a lawyer and see if I'm in the right area. I might need a different kind of employment lawyer to help me. http://ransomgilbertson.com/

Sad to hear about construction accidents, especially right before the holidays.

any appropriate medical experts required, any treatment you may need and all losses you have suffered
because of your accident and injury, and thereby ensuring the maximum compensation you are entitled.
