Financial Compensation For a Construction Work Injuries

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard represents injured construction workers and helps them secure the full financial compensation to which they are entitled. As a construction injury lawyer, Michael has shared his knowledge regarding the legal options available for construction crane injury victims or their families.

"When a construction worker is injured while operating equipment, such as a construction crane, it is important they know their options for financial support. Most construction work injuries are covered by workers' compensation. However, construction injury cases are more complex than other types of work injuries. There are many parties responsible for the tragedy. If workers were injured due to an unsafe condition at the property, the property owner could be held liable. Additionally, if the equipment failed or was not maintained, others could be held accountable."

"Victims injured while working on a construction site can learn more about their legal options by speaking with experienced construction injury lawyers. Experienced construction injury attorneys can help to identify all responsible parties and hold them accountable in a civil lawsuit. Injured workers or their surviving family members may be entitled to compensation, which an attorney can help to ensure is paid in full."
