Injuries Caused By Falls From Heights

You have options beyond workers' compensation if you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a construction accident of nearly any type. Workers' comp may cover initial medical costs, but it alone usually cannot cover all the expenses of medical care, hospital stays, surgery, rehabilitation, pain and suffering, lost wages, lost income earning capacity and other long-term hardships.

Consulting an experienced personal injury attorney may be vital in your case. A fall from an elevated structure can have life-altering and potentially fatal consequences. If negligence on the part of a contractor or property owner occurred, including an OSHA safety violation, you may have a case for personal injury compensation.

At McCoy & McCoy, we represent injured workers and personal injury victims throughout Connecticut. Since 1960, we have been ardent advocates of workers' rights, and we consistently secure full and fair compensation for our clients.

Based in Hartford, our principal attorney, Frank McCoy Jr., is certified in civil trial law by the National Board of Trial Advocacy — a distinction that fewer than 0.5 percent of all Connecticut attorneys have earned. We will handle all legal aspects of your case and fight to maximize your deserved compensation either through negotiated settlement or jury trial.

Over 90 percent of our cases settle before court litigation is necessary. We take pride in securing the full and fair compensation our clients deserve.

We Account For All Past, Present And Future Injuries And Losses

Negligence on the work site can easily lead to someone suffering a severe injury. Construction workers are placed in harm's way daily — sometimes multiple times each day. Safety procedures must be followed, and it is up to employers and property owners to ensure that all work sites are compliant with municipal, state and federal regulations.

Catastrophic injuries to construction workers can ruin families, bring enormous medical debt and force people into bankruptcy or worse. Finding experienced and dedicated legal representation as soon as possible is critical.

We also help people recover wrongful death benefits when they lose a loved one to a catastrophic construction accident. Monetary compensation will not replace your loved one, but it will help save you from going into a black hole of debt and help you cope with the loss.

Wrongful death benefits can cover:

  • Medical expenses
  • Loss of income from the deceased
  • Compensation for pain and suffering experienced by the deceased
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of consortium (marital relations)

We know how to secure and maximize your benefits, and we know how to ease legal burdens to the fullest extent possible.
