Financial Compensation For Families of Fatal Construction Accident Victims
Attorney contributor Laurence Banville represents injured construction workers and the families of construction workers killed in work accidents. Laurence 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.
Most construction workers are covered by workers’ compensation, but not all are. In some cases, injured construction workers may also have grounds for a lawsuit.
Lawsuits cannot be filed against a construction worker’s employer, but negligent third parties can be held liable if their negligence contributed to injuries or deaths. For example, a property owner could be held liable for failing to address a dangerous property condition before beginning construction.
If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a construction accident, you can learn more about your legal rights in a free consultation with one of our construction injury lawyers.
