Comprehensive Help After A Construction Accident

While Connecticut does not see the same volume of construction site accidents as New York does, for instance, the accidents that do happen are just as significant. In 2014 alone, several tragic incidents occurred. In one case, a construction company owner and his employee died after their dump truck ran over a live electrical wire. In another case, a man was crushed to death in an excavator accident.
