Financial Compensation For Victims Of Construction Accidents

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

In most cases, victims injured in construction accidents or family members of victims killed in construction accidents can receive workers’ compensation from their employer. Additionally, under certain circumstances, these victims may be able to file a lawsuit against a negligent third-party.

For instance, if a machine malfunctions and injures or kills someone on-site, then the manufacturer may be held liable for the victim’s injuries.
