Financial Compensation 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:

In most cases, injured construction workers can receive workers’ compensation from their employers. However, there may be another legal option available to these victims under certain circumstances.

If third-party negligence was involved in the accident, then the construction worker may have grounds for a lawsuit against the third-party. For example, if machinery malfunctioned at the construction site, then the victim injured may be able to sue the manufacturers for negligence.
