Financial Compensation For Injured Construction Workers

Construction injury lawyer Kevin Biniazin helps injured construction workers recover the financial compensation for their personal and financial setbacks. Kevin has some information to share on the forms of financial compensation available to injured construction workers:

Thousands of construction workers are injured on the job every year and are left with high medical bills, lost wages, and various other personal and financial difficulties. This is why it’s important that these injured workers are aware of their options for financial compensation.

Injured construction workers often qualify for workers’ compensation, but this is not always the only form of financial compensation available. In some situations, injured construction workers may also have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit.

Employers can not be sued by their employees, but many construction injuries involve negligence from third parties. Construction sites are often made up of workers from a variety of sources. If an injury is caused by a party other than the worker’s employer, the worker may have grounds for a lawsuit against that party.

For example, if the property owner failed to ensure that their property was secure and a construction worker was injured as a result of this failure, the worker may have grounds for a lawsuit against the property owner.
