Falling from Elevated Structures in Hartford
Hartford Personal Injury Attorney for Construction Accident Injuries
Falling from an elevated structure is a devastating accident as the injuries incurred can be fatal. It can happen on construction sites, in factories, power plants, oil refineries, buildings, skyscrapers and large monuments, such as bridges, while working with faulty scaffolding, unstable ladders, or falling off of roofs. Protection rights for employees in the state of Connecticut that work at heights, such as construction workers, are particularly inclusive. Necessary safety measures must be in place to insure a safe work environment for workers that must be stationed in elevated structures. The equipment must be sturdy and safe, the workers properly trained in their field, and qualified supervision must be provided for the duration of the project. If the safety codes are not respected, the employer, supervisor or contractor can be liable for damages. This calls for top legal representation that will protect your rights.
