Financial Compensation For Injured Construction Workers & Their Families

Michael Haggard is a construction injury lawyer who helps injured construction workers and the families of fatal construction accident victims find the financial support they need and deserve. Here is Michael with some thoughts on the legal rights of these workers and families:

Construction workers put their lives on the line to help build our communities. The construction industry has some of the highest rates of workplace injuries and deaths. When a construction worker gets injured on the job, he or she should be aware of their legal rights. Additionally, families who have lost loved ones in construction accidents deserve support for the difficulties they face.

Most construction injuries are covered under workers' compensation benefits. But in some cases, third-party negligence is to blame for a construction accident. In cases of third-party negligence, the worker or their family may have grounds for a lawsuit.
