Construction Accident Lawyer in Connecticut

A construction site is a dangerous place with so many types of heavy equipment and building tools in operation. Pathways and stairs are not complete. The entire structure is often unfinished and does not have the usual safety features. Construction workers wear protective clothing like hard hats whenever they are working on site, but injuries remain commonplace.

Injuries on construction sites are common, even when safety measures are in place. Accidents can happen involving tools and equipment. Workers can trip and take a devastating fall.

If you were in a construction accident and are in need of legal counsel, contact The Doctor Lawyer Team to discuss your case with an experienced Connecticut construction accident lawyer.

Common Injuries in Construction Accidents

Cuts and bruises are common on construction sites. However, injuries can be much worse if safety procedures are not followed. Some types of injuries seen in construction sites include:

  • Soft tissue wounds
  • Bone fractures
  • Electrical and chemical burns
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Concussions
  • Electric shock
  • Hearing loss
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Internal trauma

Accidents can be prevented or reduced through proper training and the use of safety equipment. However, if there are safety violations, injuries become more likely.

The Doctor Lawyer Team is here to provide legal advice on your construction site accident case. Contact us, and we will discuss your legal options. Book your consultation today.

Why Do Construction Accidents Happen?

Construction accidents cause severe injuries, and even death. The Connecticut Department of Labor shows that 30% of workplace deaths in the state happen in this field. Due to the nature of work sites, they are full of hazards. The dangerous environment is part of the risk of working in construction. Common reasons people become injured on a construction site are:

  • Falling from a height
  • Slip/trip and fall accidents
  • Accidents with heavy equipment and machinery
  • Fire
  • Explosions
  • Structural collapses
  • Electrocution
  • Exposure to chemicals
  • Transport accidents
  • Defective tools and equipment

These accidents are commonly due to safety violations. Connecticut has rules dictating how sites are to be managed to protect the workers. Some common safety violations include:

  • Inadequate fall protection
  • Negligence in building scaffoldings
  • Lack of safety equipment provided to the workers
  • Faulty machinery or heavy equipment
  • Lack of training in using dangerous equipment
  • Misuse of tools and equipment
  • Lack of fire prevention measures
  • Failing to inspect tools and equipment

Who Is Liable for my Construction Accident?

Determining who is at fault is an important element of a construction accident, and it affects the compensation that may be available to the victim. This process can be challenging because many factors can play into it.

Your case may involve third-party liability, in which the negligence that caused the accident falls on the shoulders of neither the employee nor the employer. Instead, another party indirectly causes it.

Some parties that may be liable for the accident include:

  • Contractors or subcontractors
  • Owner of the premises
  • Project engineer or architect
  • Manufacturer of the equipment or tools used

An intensive investigation is required to determine liability. Contact The Doctor Lawyer Team for a free legal consultation to determine how we can help you build your case.
