Legal Recourse For Victims of Construction Accidents

Brian Kent helps workers who have been injured in construction accidents receive financial compensation. Brian has offered to discuss the legal options for these victims and their families:

Most of the time a worker injured in a construction accident can receive workers’ compensation from their employer. In addition to this, sometimes injured construction workers or family members of construction workers who have died may have grounds for a work injury lawsuit.

This is only possible if the injury or death was caused by a negligent third party. For example, a property owner may be held liable for not fixing a dangerous property condition before beginning construction.
