Legal Recourse For Victims of Construction Accidents

Laurence Banville is a lawyer who helps injured construction workers find the financial support they need and deserve. Here is Laurence with some thoughts on the legal rights of these workers and their families:

The construction industry has very high rates of workplace injuries and deaths. When a construction worker gets injured on the job, it is important for them to be aware of their legal rights. In addition, families who have lost loved ones in construction accidents deserve the same.

A lot of construction injuries are covered under workers’ compensation benefits. However, sometimes third-party negligence is the cause of a construction accident. In these cases of third-party negligence, the worker or their family may have grounds for a lawsuit.

For example, a property owner may be held liable for not changing a dangerous property condition before starting construction.
