Legal Recourses for Construction Accident Victims

An experienced construction death attorney at BanvilleLaw.com and contributor to Legal Herald, Laurence Banville shared the following insight for loved ones of victims killed in construction accidents:

“While it’s not something that is often discussed, it can easily be said that the United States has become the industrious powerhouse it is today thanks in part to the brave men and women who labored on construction sites to make it happen.

These bold construction workers faced dangers and hazards every day that they stepped on a construction site, and they persevered nonetheless.

So what happens when these honorable employees are injured on the job? As any other employee, they have the right to receive compensation to cover the treatment of their injuries. In some cases, lost income can also be reimbursed.

Yet, construction sites are one of the deadliest workplaces. This is mostly due to the powerful tools and heavy machinery that are often encountered there. What options exist when these known hazards take the life of a worker?

The family members of victims have the right to pursue a construction death lawsuit on their loved one’s behalf. Through this lawsuit, they are able to bring to justice those who allowed negligence to take their family member’s life. The lawsuit can also provide financial compensation that takes care of medical bills and funeral expenses, but which can also take into account loss of companionship as well as loss of income.

Persons considering filing a lawsuit after their loved one suffered a fatal construction accident should consult with an experienced attorney to determine all the possible legal options which exist in their situation.”
