MIAMI CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENT LAWYERS
Miami Construction Site Injury Attorneys
Accidents and injuries are a part of life, but there are some circumstances that can increase the likelihood of you experiencing them. Although there are stringent health and safety rules and regulations to follow, working in construction is considered to be a high-risk form of employment.
In addition to the sites themselves containing large, heavy equipment, chemicals and complex, dangerous tools, construction workers often have to work in difficult conditions such as at height or during poor weather. Most construction sites contain a wide range of people all performing different roles and with different levels of training, which just adds to the likelihood of an accident occurring.
Despite the care taken by construction companies and employees, thousands of workers are injured on sites in the U.S. every year. While some of these injuries are minor, allowing the patient to recover and regain their normal day to day life, others may have more serious and long-lasting effects. If you have been involved in a construction accident at work that wasn’t your fault, you could be entitled to compensation that will help cover any loss of earnings, medical bills, or other financial impact from your injury.

About Worker’s Compensation Benefits
Worker’s compensation is a special type of financial award that helps those who have suffered an injury in a construction accident in Florida. The aim of the benefit is to replace loss of earnings while the patient is undergoing treatment or recovery for a workplace-sustained injury. In addition to this, workers are entitled to claim back the cost of their medical treatment, and may also be able to receive either a lump sum settlement and/or disability payments to help them with future expenses.
In addition to making a claim against your employer, you may also be able to pursue compensation from third parties that may have contributed to your accident, such as suppliers or manufacturers. The additional compensation that could be achieved by doing so often makes the difference between securing mediocre or top quality medical care and rehabilitative treatment.
Why Hire a Construction Accident Lawyer?
Although you could pursue your construction accident claim yourself, many patients and their families find that they would rather avoid the additional stress and time spent doing so, especially at a time when the patient may still be injured or need a rehabilitation treatment.
