Financial Compensation For Families of Fatal Construction Accident Victims
Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson, a construction accident lawyer in California, represents injured construction workers and the families of construction workers killed in work accidents. Bobby has some information to share on the options for financial compensation available to these workers and families:
“Construction work is a dangerous job, with some of the highest work-related injury and death rates of any industry. When a construction worker is injured or killed on the job, one or more forms of financial compensation may be available to the worker and their family. Though most construction workers are covered by workers’ compensation, not all are. In some cases, injured construction workers may also have grounds for a lawsuit,” Mr. Thompson explained.
He goes on to share, “Negligent third parties can be held liable if they contributed to the injuries of deaths of the victims involved. For example, a property owner could be held liable for failing to address a dangerous property condition before beginning construction.”
