Financial Compensation For Injured Construction Workers

Jeff Gibson helps injured construction workers receive the financial compensation they need and deserve. Jeff has offered to discuss the legal options available to these victims and their families:

In most cases, injured construction workers may be able to receive workers’ compensation from their employer. However, there may be other options for the worker injured in a construction accident or for the family of a worker who was killed in a construction accident.

If the incident involved negligence from a third-party, then victims may be able to sue this third-party under certain circumstances. For instance, if the property had hazardous working conditions that were not improved before the accident, then the property owner may be held liable for the victim’s injuries.
