Generally, the law makes the owner pay a certain degree of compensation to the family of the victim. But the owner may not be responsible as the contractor is the employer of the labour and thus contractor shall pay for the compensation. Also, the payment of any compensation to the victim will depend on the terms of the contract between the owner of the property and the contractor. CONTACT FOR MORE INFORMATION
