Construction Accidents

NEW HAVEN CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENTS ATTORNEY

THIRD-PARTY LIABILITY FOR CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENTS

Construction work is inherently dangerous work, but that does not mean you are not deserving of compensation for a work-related injury. When accidents occur, the injuries may be life-threatening or career-ending. Connecticut workers’ compensation does not always cover the losses, especially when employers and their insurers deny or downplay benefits.

The LoRicco Law Firm will aggressively pursue full compensation from all sources: (a) your rightful benefits under workers’ compensation and (b) lawsuits against third parties that created a safety hazard or acted recklessly.

We have represented New Haven workers’ compensation construction accident victims including many clients in the construction trades injured on the job.

Please contact us today at 203-865-3123 to protect your rights.

TYPES OF CONSTRUCTION SITE ACCIDENTS THAT CAN BE COMPENSATED

We are familiar with the serious hazards and resulting injuries in construction jobs. There are several types of accidents from which you may be able to recover compensation for past, present and future damages, including:

  • Falls from roofs and other heights
  • Ladder and scaffolding accidents
  • Crane accidents and other heavy equipment accidents
  • On-duty motor vehicle accidents
  • Power tool and equipment injuries
  • Machinery accidents
  • Electrical shock injuries
  • Fires, explosions and toxic exposures
  • Slip-and-fall injuries
  • Falling objects or flying debris

Common construction work injuries include back and neck injuries, serious burns and lacerations, broken bones, torn ligaments, traumatic brain injuries and facial injuries.

RECOVERING YOUR LOSSES

A lasting injury may prevent you from earning a living in construction or any other type of manual labor. You may need vocational retraining and additional education just to get back to work, not to mention securing a job that will pay you the same living you earned working construction. Compensation from a New Haven workers’ compensation injury claim may also include recovery of medical expenses, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering, and disability benefits.

LAWSUITS AGAINST THIRD PARTIES

We examine possible claims against individuals or entities other than your co-workers, supervisor or employer who may bear responsibility for your injury. You may be able to make a claim against another subcontractor on the same work site, the property owner or general contractor, a utility company, an equipment manufacturer, a material supplier, or a truck driver or motorist who caused a collision.
