Construction Accident Lawyer Serving Fairfield County, CT
Compensation for injuries and accidents in Connecticut and New York
If you have been injured on the job — whether on a construction site, factory floor or any other location — you may be entitled to bring a claim or lawsuit to recover additional and significant compensation for your pain and suffering in addition to any workers’ compensation benefits you receive.
Workplace Negligence and Personal Injury Claims
Other subcontractors and the general contractor on the job site may be liable for your injuries. A personal injury claim is intended to provide the additional monetary compensation needed to cover all of the losses suffered due to the negligence of others on the jobsite including damages for pain and suffering, compensation for your medical bills (past and future), rehabilitation and lost wages (past and future).
Worker compensation laws allow for very basic compensation to an injured worker but do not provide compensation for the effects of an injury on a worker, often referred to pain and suffering or non-economic damages, or impairment in future earning capacity.
We handle the full array of workplace negligence lawsuits including:
- Construction site injuries
- Scaffolding accidents
- Falls on the jobsite
