Attorney contributor, Jeff Gibson represents victims of construction accidents in legal claims. Below, Jeff has generously shared his knowledge of the legal options available to these victims and their families:
Most injured construction workers are able to receive workers’ compensation after an accident. In addition to this, under certain circumstances, injured construction workers may be able to file a third-party liability lawsuit. For example, if a construction site has a dangerous property condition and the property owner does nothing to fix the issue, then he/she may be held liable for the victim’s injuries.
