Connecticut residents regularly see people who are behind the wheel of their motor vehicle who are looking down or clearly playing on their cellphone. Researchers are concerned about this because of the propensity for distracted drivers to have auto accidents with injuries and fatalities. One new study from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) examined these behaviors and revealed that drivers are largely ignoring laws and warnings against the practice.

Construction site accident injures three workers

Construction work in Connecticut and across the nation has inherent dangers that workers and their employers must be aware of and take steps to mitigate. The combination of working with large machinery, complex and heavy tools, being stationed at great heights, climbing ladders and working on scaffolds will inevitably put workers at risk. A key part of making ends meet and getting medical treatment after a construction site accident is to have workers' compensation benefits. In some instances, it is necessary to have legal help to maximize those benefits.

Motor vehicles are frequently operated recklessly, negligently and by drivers who are under the influence or are distracted.

When this happens, victims or their family should seek compensation.

Construction site accident burns worker in Connecticut

Construction workers will have myriad tasks to complete when they are involved in a project. Many will involve heavy equipment, being at great heights, using dangerous tools and essentially, trusting others with their lives. Accidents can happen at any time. What is often forgotten, however, is that even the mundane tasks can have their risks. Construction is risky and those who are in an accident will have multiple issues to consider. Workers' compensation benefits are key to their treatment and recovery. Getting those benefits is occasionally difficult and a law firm that works with those filing workers' compensation claims can help.

Workplace injuries are an unfortunate fact of life in Connecticut no matter what kind of job a person does. Being injured on the job can happen in physical jobs where there is inherent danger or in sedentary jobs where there are few expected risks. After being injured on the job, workers must know about workers' compensation claims and how to pursue the maximum in benefits.
