The kinds of injuries construction workers face

While building our office towers and roads, Connecticut construction workers cope with dangers that often lead to serious injury or death. This summer, a construction worker died in a backhoe accident in Windsor. Another worker died in Stanford as the result of a payloader accident. Inattentive drivers traveling too fast through work zones frequently strike Connecticut Department of Transportation workers.

Construction workers rely upon their jobs to support their families. Unfortunately, the injuries that they can suffer while engaging in this type of work can make it impossible for them to continue working whatsoever.

The kinds of illnesses and injuries construction workers suffer include:

  • Amputations from having limbs caught in machinery
  • Brain injuries resulting from building collapses or falling objects
  • Burn injuries resulting from exposure to tar or other toxic materials
  • Electrocutions due to faulty wiring
  • Fractures and spinal cord injuries due to falls
  • Mesothelioma brought on by exposure to asbestos
  • Repetitive stress injuries to the joints due to operation of machinery

These are just a small portion of the types of injuries construction workers endure. The toll for such injuries often is even greater for the worker's family when watching their loved one suffer. In Connecticut, we need to hold employers accountable for unsafe workplace conditions. Sadly, without such accountability these same unsafe working conditions will continue to exist.

At Sousa & Minogue, we help struggling workers recover compensation after suffering injuries on the job. We understand Connecticut's workers' compensation laws, and make certain the injured workers continues receiving lost wages while having his or her medical expenses paid. As the steps for recovering compensation are complex, we provide the legal advice and assistance construction workers need.
