Financial Compensation For Workers Injured In 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:
Usually, when a construction worker is injured on the job they are able to receive workers’ compensation from their employer. In addition to this, sometimes a victim’s injuries are caused by third-party negligence.
In these cases, the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against the third-party. For instance, a property owner may be held liable for not fixing a dangerous property condition before starting construction.
