Civil Lawsuit Options For Victims of Construction Accidents
Aaron Blank, an experienced construction injury attorney and contributor to Legal Herald, has shared some important details that victims of construction accidents and their loved ones should be familiar with:
“Construction sites are often bustling with ‘heavy machinery’, a broad term used to group all of the heavy-duty vehicles regularly encountered there. Indeed, the help of these powerful tools is vital on work sites.
From dump trucks to cherry pickers and everything in between, construction tasks are significantly easier to complete with their help. Unfortunately, these mighty trucks can also become incredibly dangerous if not operated properly.
Even when all safety standards are followed, construction accidents involving heavy machinery continue transpiring year after year. And the resulting injuries are often very grave, affecting the lives of the victims and their loved ones.
No matter the extent of the injury, a worker’s comp claim can be filed to recuperate the medical expenses incurred by the injury. Additionally, if other workers on the site are found to have acted negligently, there may be a possibility to file a personal injury lawsuit against a third party.
Both options can be pursued at the same time, and in both scenarios, an attorney can provide significant insight and guidance.”
