Legal Recourse For Victims of Construction

Brian Kent helps workers who have been injured in construction accidents receive financial compensation. Brian has offered to discuss the legal options for these victims and their families:

In a lot of cases, the injured construction worker may only qualify for workers’ compensation. However, there are some situations where injured construction workers may be able to file a work injury lawsuit.

These types of cases exist in situations where the injury or death was caused by a negligent third party. Which would be someone other than the worker’s employer or coworkers.

For instance, if a machine malfunctioned because of an error the manufacturer made, then the manufacturer may be held liable.
