Legal Recourse For Workers Injured In Construction Accidents

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville represents injured construction workers and helps them recover the financial compensation they deserve. Below Laurence discusses the legal rights of construction workers who have been injured on the job:

Injured construction workers are usually able to receive workers’ compensation from their employer. In addition to this, these victims may have grounds for a lawsuit against a third-party under certain circumstances.

If a negligent third-party is the cause of a construction accident, then they may be held liable for a construction worker’s injuries. For instance, if a machine malfunctioned due to an error the manufacturer made, then the manufacturer may be held liable for the workers’ injuries.
