Financial Compensation For Workers Injured in Construction Accidents
Attorney contributor Brian Kent, a construction accident lawyer, represents injured construction workers and the families of construction workers killed in work accidents. Brian has provided some information on the options for financial compensation available to these workers and families:
In most cases when a construction worker is injured on the job, he or she can receive workers’ compensation from their employer. However, there may be another legal option available to these victims.
In some instances, injured construction workers may be able to sue a third-party if negligence was involved. For instance, if a construction site has hazardous conditions prior to construction starting and the property owner does nothing to fix it, then he or she may be held liable for a victim’s injuries.
