Justice For Injured Construction Workers

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan represents construction workers who have been injured on the job, helping them recover the financial compensation they need and deserve. Marc recently discussed the legal options available to injured construction workers, including how filing a construction injury lawsuit could help them seek justice.

"Construction workers are among the nation's top occupations with the highest number of work-related injuries. While construction jobs are often more dangerous than others, many construction accidents are preventable and could have been avoided if better safety standards were in place."

"Construction workers are required to have insurance in most states, which is why they usually qualify for workers' compensation when injured. However, some construction injuries that involve injuries that result from falls and falls from ladders are not likely to qualify for worker's compensation insurance. These lawsuits are typically available in situations where a third party is directly responsible for an accident at the workplace, including things like equipment malfunction or defective construction."

"Cases involving construction injuries are often complex, so determining if you have a case for a lawsuit might require the help of an experienced construction injury lawyer. Victims or the surviving family members can explore their legal options for justice that may include them receiving financial compensation."
