Laurence Banville, an experienced construction accident attorney at, shared some legal insight for the victims and families of victims who suffered an injury on a construction site:

“The presence of heavy machinery on construction sites can serve as a saving grace for projects or as a death wish for the workers who encounter them every day.

Indeed, these powerful tools make an easy job of tasks that would take dozens of man-hours to complete without their use. There’s absolutely no doubt that they help construction sites progress at a fast rate and also stay within budget.

Unfortunately, the use of heavy machinery, with all of its benefits, also brings along some serious risk. For this reason, the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) of the United States has established an extensive list of regulations to be followed.

These regulations are heavily studied before they’re put into place, and are always intended to safeguard the health of workers. Their effectiveness is seen in the worst instances, though, as when these standards are violated the result is often a gravely injured worker.

When workers suffer injuries on worksites, they have the right to receive compensation to help cover their medical care bills and some other expenses. When properly completed, worker’s comp claims are actually quite effective at relieving the financial stress felt by an injured worker and their families.

But when worker’s comp claims are not filed with the help of someone who knows the system, they can be denied or pay out a lesser amount. In these cases, the aid of an construction accident attorney can prove vital for a worker’s comp claim that covers all medical expenses and, in some cases, lost wages.”
