Financial Compensation For Workers Injured On Construction Sites

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville represents injured construction workers and their families in legal claims, helping them recover the financial support they deserve. Laurence shared some of his knowledge on the legal options available to these victims:

Construction workers are regularly injured on the job because their work can be extremely dangerous. Victims of construction accidents and the families of construction workers who die on the job are entitled to financial compensation for the loss of their loved ones.

Usually, these victims are eligible for workers’ compensation. Additionally, there are some situations in which the victims may have grounds for a lawsuit. The victims or their families can file third-party liability cases. For instance, if a property owner has dangerous property conditions, he or she may be deemed negligent if an injury was caused by these conditions.
