Legal Analysis For Victims of Construction Accidents

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville, a construction accident lawyer in New York, represents injured construction workers and their families. Laurence has provided some information on the possible legal options for these victims:

Construction work can be very hazardous. When a construction worker is injured on the job, there are various forms of financial compensation that may be available to the victim. Even though most construction workers are covered by workers’ compensation, some may not be. In some instances, injured construction workers may also have grounds for a lawsuit.

Negligent third parties may be seen as responsible if they were a contributing factor to the injuries or deaths of the victims. For instance, a property owner may be held liable for not fixing a dangerous property condition before beginning construction.
