It is no secret that working in construction can pose significant hazards to your health. In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, construction is the second most dangerous occupation in Connecticut, accounting for more work-related deaths than any other occupation except for transportation.
Due to the conditions required to complete a job and the dangerous equipment necessary for construction, many non-fatal accidents occur each year as well. These non-fatal accidents are often serious. They can result in
- An inability to work
- Significant medical expenses

Sadly, getting proper compensation for these injuries is never easy, which is why you need a Connecticut injury lawyer on your side. To schedule your free consultation with one of our Connecticut injury attorneys, please call 203-878-1254 or contact Penner Law Firm today.
