Financial Compensation For Families of Construction Workers Killed on the Job
Attorney contributor, Jeff Gibson represents victims of construction accidents in legal claims. Below, Jeff has generously shared his knowledge of the legal options available to these victims and their families:
Construction workers are regularly injured on the job and suffer some of the highest rates of fatal work-related accidents. These victims and the families of victims who die on the job are entitled to financial compensation. Usually, these victims are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, and sometimes they may have grounds for a lawsuit.
In addition to this, construction injury victims or their families may be able to file cases of third-party liability. For instance, if a worker died in an accident caused by a defective piece of machinery, the family could have grounds for a lawsuit against the manufacturer of that machinery.
