Florida Construction Accident Injury Attorney

 

Construction workers have one of the most physically demanding and dangerous jobs in our country. In fact, statistics indicate that construction accidents are six times more likely to result in a fatality than accidents in any other industry. As a result of both the obvious and inherent dangers associated with construction work, Florida courts require general contractors and other employers in the construction industry to take reasonable steps to protect construction workers, including but not limited to providing a reasonably safe site, warning of hazards inherent in the site and work, carefully hiring employees, properly training and supervising these employees, coordinating job safety and supervising compliance with safety regulations.

Construction accidents can be caused by other workers’ carelessness, negligent training and supervision, inexperience, defective or faulty equipment, lack of proper safety measures, and numerous other causes.

Here at the Trial Professionals, P.A., our Florida construction accident attorneys help those who have been injured in various different types of construction accidents. Most people do not realize this, but “construction accidents” come in various forms, and can happen at various different types of places, including industrial construction sites, commercial property (malls, shops, restaurants, apartment complexes, etc.), and even on residential property. The following examples illustrate all the different types of construction accidents:

  • Highway construction accidents
  • Crane accidents
  • Scaffold accidents
  • Falls through unprotected holes
  • Nail gun accidents
  • Defective ladders
  • Falling materials causing brain damage or other injuries
  • Electrical accidents causing burns and amputations
  • Forklift accidents
  • Excavation accidents
  • Toxic chemical exposure
  • Electric shock
  • Welding accidents
  • Dust and fumes
  • Roofing accidents

A construction site accident can be devastating, and may cause a variety of different injuries, including but not limited to permanent disability, loss of a limbs, blindness, head injury, broken bones, amputation, scarring, and even death. Often times, there are very large medical bills and there may be a long period of disability and lost wages. In Florida, worker's compensation may pay for some of the medical bills and lost earnings, but worker's compensation cannot adequately compensate an injured worker for permanent losses and disabilities arising from a serious construction accident.

Under state and federal laws designed to protect construction workers, contractors and site owners are responsible for providing a safe work environment. Workers in different fields of construction are exposed to all kinds of dangerous work site conditions. There are several parties who may be held accountable for the negligent and dangerous conditions which caused the accident, including architects, general contractors, subcontractors, product manufacturers, equipment suppliers.
