If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a scaffolding accident, it is quite unlikely that workers’ compensation insurance will cover the full costs of past, present and future expenses such as costly surgery, hospital stays, rehabilitation, lost income and disability. One thing workers’ comp will never cover is pain and suffering.You will need an experienced personal injury attorney representing your rights and interests if you wish to recover the full and fair compensation you deserve for all losses and damages.When scaffolding fails, the safety rails fail, OSHA regulations are not followed, or some other form of employer or property owner negligence leads to serious injury, you may have a case for personal injury compensation. A Connecticut scaffolding accident attorney can help with this process.
At McCoy & McCoy, our scaffolding accident attorneys are thorough investigators and litigators who know how to establish the full and fair value of your injury claim. We also assist clients throughout Connecticut, just as we have since 1960, with wrongful death claims when loved ones are killed in serious accidents.
Our principal lawyer, 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 lawyers have earned.
Certainly, monetary compensation will not heal you, but it will pay for the extreme costs of medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, long-term hardships and wrongful death losses, if applicable. It will help you cope and hopefully help you live with peace of mind once the legal process has been finalized.
