Florida Construction Accidents

Construction is all around us in our society. Working at a construction site, or simply being on one, can be dangerous. In 2007, 1,178 construction fatalities were reported in the United States, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. Opportunities for accidents causing serious injury and death are plentiful at construction sites. Employers have a responsibility to keep construction sites safe for workers. This includes implementing safety procedures, maintaining equipment, and supervising workers. Failure to follow safety procedures is the root cause of many construction accidents. An Experienced Florida Personal Injury Lawyer in this field will advance the costs and expenses necessary to successfully litigate these cases.

Types of Construction Accidents

If you make a living in the construction industry, an injury can devastate your future. Taking legal action can help you live free from financial worry even if you are unable to return to your job. Many types of construction accidents causing injury or death are caused by the negligent actions of others. These types of accidents include:

  • Building collapses
  • Crane accidents and falls
  • Dumpster accidents
  • Scaffolding accidents and falls
  • Nail gun accidents
  • Compressed gas accidents
  • Defective and dangerous machinery accidents
  • Electrical accidents
  • Elevator accidents
  • Heavy equipment accidents
  • Power tool accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Trenching and excavation accidents
  • Chemical exposure
  • Explosions
  • Transportation accidents
  • Welding accidents

A knowledgeable Florida Personal Injury Attorney in the Construction Accident Claims subject will assist you to successfully litigate these cases.

If you have been injured in a construction accident, your rights depend upon whether you were a bystander or a worker at the site. When you are injured as a bystander, normal personal injury law applies and the person or entity at fault is responsible for paying for your injuries. The situation is more complicated if you are employed at the construction site. The first thing to understand is that a worker injured at a construction site may be entitled to be compensated from more than one source. A skilled Florida Attorney in the Construction Accident Claims area will fight for you.

Third-Party Negligence

It is not always easy to determine who is responsible for a construction accident. A construction project typically involves many different companies, people, and products. Property owners, general contractors, subcontractors, architects and engineers all bear a certain amount of responsibility for providing a safe working environment at a construction site. Equipment manufacturers and suppliers also have a duty to supply safe equipment and materials. These third parties may be liable for any negligence that results in injuries to a worker, as long as the worker is not their employee. An Experienced Florida Injury Lawyer in this topic will fight and fight and fight for you.

An advantage of third-party claims is that they can result in substantially greater compensation than what an injured worker receives through workers' compensation.

In a third-party suit, the worker can recover damages in the form of lost wages, impairment of earning capacity, medical costs, future medical costs, pain and suffering, and loss of consortium. A professional Florida Personal Injury Attorney in this field will advance the costs and expenses necessary to successfully take legal action for you.
