Waterford – New London, CT & RI Construction Accident Injury Lawyers
A construction site is a dangerous place. But property owners and employers owe it to those working there to abide by safety regulations strictly. When they fail to do so, catastrophic injuries can occur.
If a construction accident in CT & RI has changed your life, we can help. At Polito & Harrington, our goal is to renew our clients’ peace of mind – and to help them prepare for an uncertain future.
“Third Party Litigation” In Construction Accidents
If your construction injury occurring in CT & RI was caused by someone who doesn’t work for the same employer as you, then you can sue that other business. You will not be subject to normal workers’ comp limits, so you have a better chance of recovering a fair settlement.
This may hold true if your construction injury in CT & RI involved:
- Unsafe scaffolding or ladders that fall
- Defective machinery
- Forklifts or other heavy machinery operated by someone outside the business you work for
- Insufficient safety equipment
- Collapsed trenches
- Volatile chemicals or hazardous materials like chlorine gas or asbestos
And if another contractor cannot be held liable, we will investigate whether the property owner bears some or all of the responsibility for your construction injuries.
At Polito & Harrington, we will explore every possible source of compensation for your construction accident. We have handled construction injuries ranging from broken bones to spinal cord and brain injuries, from amputations to wrongful death.
We will work hard to hold people and companies responsible for injuries caused by their carelessness.
