Injured while working on, visiting, or passing by a construction site? Owners and contractors have an obligation to keep the work site safe. If there is an accident, you may be able to bring a claim against the owner, general contractor or other subcontractor, as well as a workers’ compensation claim. We have substantial experience in this area of the law and have handled claims involving: Scaffolding accidents Ladder falls Heavy machinery Driver accidents Failed maintenance/slip and fall Crane accidents Job site injuries Asbestos litigation Electrical accidents Third-party claims If you were injured in the course of performing employment duties, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation. However, workers’ compensation claims are only valid against your employer and limit your recovery. You may be eligible for additional compensation, however, if a contractor, subcontractor, manufacturer, property owner, or other third party was involved in your accident. Our legal team can investigate after a construction site accident and pursue every valid claim against negligent third parties. Are you in a position to properly evaluate a settlement offer? Do you know what your claim is worth? Are you sure you know your future expenses, medical or otherwise related to your accident? We are here to protect your rights and make sure your claim demands all the compensation to which you may be entitled, including protection from future complications. Our law firm will cover all expenses until the end of a case and upon recovery, we are paid a portion of the funds. If we are unable to recover compensation for you, you do not owe us a fee. This is called a “contingent fee” arrangement and is common among Florida construction accident attorneys. To speak directly with an attorney call (352) 343-4090 or contact us by email.
