Legal Options For Injured Construction Workers

Construction accident lawyer, Laurence Banville, helps injured construction workers receive the financial compensation they deserve. Laurence has provided us with some information on the legal options available to these victims:

A large portion of construction injuries are covered by workers’ compensation, but there may be an instance when injured construction workers can file lawsuits. Although these victims cannot sue their employers, a lawsuit can be filed if third-party negligence was a contributor to the accident. For instance, a property owner may be deemed negligent if an injury was caused by a dangerous property condition.
