Legal Recourse For Victims of Construction Accidents

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville represents injured construction workers and helps them recover the financial compensation they deserve. Here are some thoughts from Laurence on the legal options available to these families:

Many construction workers, unless they are independent contractors, may qualify for workers’ compensation. But this may not be their only option for financial compensation.

Sometimes these victims or family members of victims who have died may have grounds for a lawsuit against a negligent third party. For instance, a property owner may be considered a negligent third party if he/she failed to keep the property safe for workers.
