LAWRENCE, KS (KCTV) -

A lawsuit filed after an 8-year-old boy was seriously injured while wandering on a school construction site is expected to be settled. 

Max McGill was injured at New York Elementary. He suffered a broken collarbone and a broken rib in the accident that happened in August 2015. 

The suit alleges that a hazardous condition was created by the construction company and the Lawrence Public School District by not properly securing the site. 

The school district says it did not contribute to the settlement and will be released from any liability once the suit is settled. 

Eric Kirkendall, a resident who lives in the area, shot video of the site he considered dangerous. 

"Clearly, before that happened and even after when I got involved, there was not enough attention being paid to safety," he said. "I think there is now, so I'm optimistic about that." 

The lawsuit is expected to be settled on Friday.
