Help For Construction Accident Victims And Their Families
Construction sites are inherently dangerous. While most contractors and construction companies work hard to protect workers and work sites, it only takes one mistake to lead to a serious construction accident. If you or someone in your family was hurt in a job site injury, an experienced construction accident attorney can help you maximize the compensation to which you are entitled.
At Williams, Walsh & O'Connor, LLC, in the New Haven area, we not only know construction law, but we also understand how construction accidents can affect injured workers and their families throughout Connecticut. Some of our construction accident lawyers have received AV Preeminent or BV Distinguished ratings by Martindale-Hubbell’s peer review rating system.* All are licensed to practice in all Connecticut state and federal courts, including the U.S. Court of Appeals.

Experienced Work Injury Lawyers
Numerous state and federal safety laws and regulations have been enacted to protect construction workers. By law, construction companies, contractors and developers have a duty to provide effective safety training and ensure that protocol is followed at all times. When a worker suffers serious, or even fatal, personal injuries at the work site, the construction company, contractor and/or developer may be held responsible.
As your attorneys, we will thoroughly investigate the cause of your injury. When appropriate, we will consult with construction experts to determine what actually occurred, as well as who is ultimately liable for your losses. Rest assured we will leave no stone unturned in investigating and building your case.
