While it is your choice to either hire an attorney or represent yourself during a Hartford, CT construction accident case, having an attorney on your side can have a significant impact on your case. A lawyer can help you fully understand your injuries and get the medical treatment you need. They can make sure no insurance company or claims adjuster takes advantage of you and help you secure fair compensation for your injuries. While workers’ compensation is typically available to injured construction workers, it may not provide nearly enough if your injuries are severe. Your attorney will help you identify who is responsible for what happened and hold them acountable.

Transportation accidents, scaffold accidents, dangerous work environments, lack of protective gear, and defective products are all common causes of construction site injuries in Connecticut.
