Liability in Construction Accidents

By McCoy & McCoy  Feb. 4, 2011 4:54p

One of the most dangerous places to be caught in an accident is on a construction site. Construction workers and construction sites must adhere to very strict guidelines in order to ensure not only the safety of themselves, but also of other people in the surrounding area. There are still many risks though, which can result in catastrophic injuries to the person involved. Unfortunately, there are some types of accidents that are unexpected or unavoidable due to the nature of the accident. Many types however, are due to the recklessness, negligence, or unsafe safety procedures implemented within the construction site. In these types of accidents, the injured worker may be able to fight for compensation for these types of injuries with the assistance of a skilled Hartford personal injury attorney.

There is a definitive difference between the types of accidents caused by unforeseeable events or unexpected changes that cause an injury, and those types of accidents that are caused by unsafe actions, defective equipment or other dangerous work conditions. When an accident is caused by the negligence of a person or company, the injured worker or their family can fight to receive compensation for damages such as medical expenses, wage loss and other associated costs. This can include potential medical expenses for permanent injuries such as those causing paralysis, burns, brain damage, or other serious bodily trauma.
