Legal Recourse For Victims of 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:

Construction workers have some of the highest injury rates compared to any other job. Many injuries are cover by workers’ compensation, but this is not the only form of lawsuits that construction workers can file.

When a construction worker is injured due to the negligence of a third party, he or she may have grounds for a construction injury lawsuit. For instance, a property owner may be deemed negligent if an injury was caused by a dangerous property condition.
