Construction work is essential for the continued growth of New Haven and the state of Connecticut. However, those employed in the construction industry face more risks than others. At Jacobs & Jacobs, we are here to help if you need a New Haven construction accident lawyer. We know the challenges the construction workers face each day, and we also know that employers and insurance carriers can put up a fight when it comes to securing compensation when an injury occurs. Let us help you get through this process so you can focus on recovering and getting your health back.
Construction accidents can be challenging, particularly when it comes to determining liability. Often, these incidents involved third parties other than the employer, which opens up the possibility of both a workers’ compensation claim as well as a third-party injury lawsuit. An attorney will need to be fluent in handling both types of situations.
For these claims, a New Haven construction accident attorney can use their resources to obtain all evidence needed to prove viability. They can also ensure that their client is evaluated by trusted medical professionals who can provide second opinions about the type of care needed. Finally, an attorney will negotiate with every party involved to reach a fair settlement on behalf of their client.
We need to look no further than data provided by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to see that construction workers face risks every day. Data shows that, during the latest reporting year across the country, around 20% of all workplace fatalities occur in the construction industry.
Aside from the fatalities, we know that construction workers sustain injuries each day due to on-the-job incidents. These injuries can be comprised of significant acute traumatic injuries as well as repetitive motion injuries and occupational illnesses.
