Florida Construction Accident
One of the most dangerous and physically challenging jobs a person can have is that of a construction worker. Construction sites are notoriously dangerous places and statistics show that construction accidents rank third when it comes to death due to injury at the workplace. A construction site is dangerous because of the type of work being done, but also because negligence or carelessness, which can mean serious, debilitating injury for a worker. If you've suffered a traumatic injury or lost a loved one in a construction accident, you may be entitled to compensation and/or damages for lost wages and medical expenses. Our Florida Construction Accident Lawyer team at Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC will review the facts surrounding your construction accident case and tell you what your legal options are.
There are many scenarios that can cause a construction accident, such as:
- Crane accident
- Scaffolding accident
- Falling debris
- Slip and fall
A worker involved in any of these incidents can receive minor injuries or severe injuries resulting in a wrongful death. In addition, a severe construction accident injury can cause a person to become permanently disabled and may render them unable to return to work. Families can be devastated by the results of a construction accident injury, with mountains of medical bills and a loved one who may be in pain for the rest of their life.
While laws exist that are supposed to protect construction workers from such accidents like falling debris and falling from heights, these accidents are still going to happen. Whether they're caused by faulty equipment or due to a lack of safety gear, construction workers can get hurt on the job. When it happens, it's important to remember that there may be multiple parties responsible for your injury. You may have a right to collect compensation from the property owner, the project manager, general contractors, subcontractors, or equipment manufacturers. Because of the sheer number of entities that may be involved in any given construction accident case, it's vital to have our experienced Florida Construction Accident Lawyer staff to guide you through the complex legal maze that results from such a case.
