Financial Compensation For Workers Injured in Construction Accidents

Guy D'Andrea helps workers who have been injured in construction accidents receive the financial compensation that they need and deserve. Brian has offered his insight on the legal options for these victims and their families:

In many cases, injured construction workers may be able to receive workers’ compensation. In addition to workers’ compensation, there are some instances when injured construction workers may have grounds for a work injury lawsuit.

A work injury lawsuit is one where the injury or death is caused by a negligent third party. This is someone other than the victims’ employer or coworkers.

For example, if a machine malfunctioned due to an error the manufacturer made, then the manufacturer may be held liable for the workers’ injuries.
