Financial Compensation For Workers Injured In Construction Accidents

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville represents injured construction workers and helps them recover the financial compensation they deserve. Here are some thoughts from Laurence on the legal options available to these families:

Typically construction workers who have been injured on the job are able to receive workers’ compensation from their employer. However, these victims may have other legal options available to them.

In some cases, injured construction workers may be able to sue a third party if negligence was involved. For example, if a machine malfunctioned and caused injuries or death, then the manufacturer may be held responsible for the victim’s injuries.
