LegalView to Re-Launch Construction Accident Lawsuit Information Portal

June 10, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News, the premier online legal resource, is set to relaunch their highly informative Construction Accident Information portal, adding to the extensive knowledge base of the family. This announcement comes as a boon to individuals and families affected by accidents occurring either on construction sites or injuries sustained from working on a construction site, as the information portal can provide access to a construction accident attorney. According to the latest data released by the Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics, construction site accidents accounted for the highest number of fatal occupational injuries, that is, deadly accident while on a construction work site. In 2007, 1,204 fatalities were reported, giving workers in the construction field cause for alarm.

The number of injuries sustained on the job for workers in the construction field continues to rise, both on the number of fatalities and serious debilitating injuries. Many times, workman's compensation insurance is not enough to cover medical expenses, living expenses, and outstanding debt that may exist. This is why it is so important for workers who have been injured on the job to look into receiving legal compensation by contacting a construction accident lawyer as soon as they are prepared to discuss their injury. Oftentimes, contacting a construction accident law firm soon after an accident has occurred can benefit the injured worker the most. However, it can also take some time before serious side effect and symptoms manifest themselves. In this case, reviewing information concering construction accidents is a necessity for many.

In the interest of providing resources to disabled workers and those seeking compensation for their families, LegalView has decided to relaunch their expansive construction accident information portal with even more information to help victims of construction accidents decide if they should consider a construction accident lawsuit. The new format will include updated resource links, an expanded article section containing a wide range of information concerning construction site accidents, information on what constitutes a construction accident case, and a simple form that can connect people injured on the job or families that have suffered a loss due to a construction site accident with the legal help they need.

LegalView hosts a variety of information portals in order to provide victims of legal issues with easy-to-access information as well as updated news articles, the most recent jury verdicts and in some instances, forums or blogs for victims of legal issues to share their stories. LegalView's most recently updated information portals include a mesothelioma information portal which provides a wealth of resources concerning asbestos-related cancers and occupational hazards of those working with asbestos removal, the Ketek information portal, and the Chantix information site.

Mesothelioma cancer is caused by the inhalation of asbestos fibers and dust, which can occur anywhere asbestos has been previously used, although it is most commonly found in insulation within the construction industry. Individuals who have been affected by mesothelioma cancer are advised to seek out a mesothelioma law firm that can provide victims with a better understanding of the details of a potential mesothelioma lawsuit. An experienced law firm can also provide a plethora of mesothelioma lawyers to deal with the specifics of an individual's asbestos-related case.

The potential ketek side effects already identified have included liver damage and liver failure, and the drug has been allegedly linked to at least 18 deaths and more than 100 cases of liver damage, according to a public safety advisory from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that was issued in 2006. However, the drug has not been recalled and patients who have taken the drug are advised to consider contacting a Ketek law firm, which can offer assistance in finding an experienced Ketek lawyer.

Finally, Chantix, one of the most recently released prescription drugs, is used to aid patients attempting to quit smoking. In late 2007, hundreds of patients of the smoking-cessation drug had reported unusual Chantix side effects that included mood swings, erratic behavior, depression, suicidal thoughts and tendencies. An additional 37 cases of suicide among Chantix patients had also been reported to the FDA, according to an FDA Public Health Advisory from 2008.
