According to WUSA, on December 30th, 2019 around 7:30 a.m., a man was working as a sub-contractor on the 1600 block of Capital One Drive in Tysons, Virginia.
A rebar was being transported by a crane and it fell, striking the worker on site. The victim was transported to the hospital but died from his injuries.
There have been no updates reported on the incident.
Construction accident lawyer, Kevin Biniazan, helps injured construction workers receive the financial compensation they need and deserve. Kevin has given us some insight into the legal options available to these victims and their families:
Most construction injuries are covered by workers’ compensation, but there may be a scenario when injured construction workers can file lawsuits against third-parties.
Although these victims cannot sue their employers, a lawsuit can be filed if third-party negligence was a contributor to the accident. For example, a property owner may be deemed negligent if an injury was caused by a dangerous property condition or machine.
