Millions Recovered For Injured People

Workplace accident kills worker when building collapses

No matter what kind of job a Connecticut resident does, one of the last things they think will happen to them is a fatal workplace accident. Unfortunately, there are times when the unforeseen occurs and people lose their lives in an accident on the job. The family left behind must think about all they have lost and consider filing a lawsuit to recover their damages.

A construction crew was working on a barn when it collapsed. A law enforcement officer was close to the area and heard the crash. When the trooper arrived, there was a man trapped inside who was screaming for assistance. When others arrived to help, they found a 38-year-old man inside the barn. He was unresponsive and died at the scene. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating.

For people who have lost a loved one in a workplace accident, the unexpected nature of it adds to the litany of problems they will face. Since the person was working, they were likely contributing significantly to the household. Along with financial concerns, the family must deal with the emotional loss from the untimely death. And, getting beyond what occurred can take time. Insurance companies will offer the family a settlement, but the amount is rarely sufficient. Having legal advice to assess the case and seek compensation is imperative in a case.

If your loved one was killed in an accident at work, you must consider the future and contact a law firm experienced in wrongful death cases.
