The vast majority of work on a construction site is accomplished high above the ground in Connecticut. By using ladders and scaffolding, workers are able to complete tasks dozens of feet in the air. If this equipment fails, however, a fall from height can cause serious injuries.
Whether your scaffold fall was caused by defective equipment, lack of safety features or the negligence of another person, it is important to contact a skilled Farmington scaffold injury attorney. At the Law Offices of James F. Aspell, P.C., we have helped individuals with a wide variety of injuries seek the workers' compensation benefits they are entitled to.
Experienced Honest Advice And Personal Service
Through our experience, we have handled workers' compensation cases involving everything from broken bones to muscle sprains to paralysis. Clients rely on us for an honest assessment and personal attention throughout their situation.
One of the largest and most dangerous pieces of machinery on a construction site is a crane. This equipment is designed to lift and transport material, tools or machinery weighing several tons. If an individual is untrained, inattentive or generally negligent in his or her duties, catastrophic or even fatal injuries can occur.
What Are Third-Party Claims?
In many situations, it is possible to make a third-party claim and bring a personal injury lawsuit against an individual who caused the accident. If the accident was caused by a third party — someone not under the employ of your company — we can explore the possibility of additional compensation. Typically, third parties are contractors, delivery drivers or other workers who are not necessarily working for the same company you are. If you have questions on this topic, we encourage you to schedule a free consultation at our firm.
