Dangers of Construction Sites

Construction sites pose many dangers for workers and non-workers alike. Some construction site dangers include open manholes, unsafe scaffolding, falling debris, malfunctioning heavy machinery, electrocution, and insufficient warning signs. According to OSHA, the four main causes of construction-related deaths are: 1) Falls 2) Struck-By 3) Caught In/Between and 4) Electrocutions. There are many things that could happen, but construction companies have a responsibility to create and maintain a safe environment. If they fail to do so, they can be held liable for incurred injuries or damages.

Workers’ Compensation vs. Personal Injury Attorney

Should I file a workers’ compensation claim? Workers’ compensation can be a great resource for a worker (or their family) in the incident of injury or death. You can receive compensation whether or not there was negligence on the part of the employer. However, there are limitations to what workers’ compensation can give and to what extent they are responsible for providing payment. Additionally, because it is no-fault, you will generally receive less compensation than if you filed a claim through a personal injury attorney.

Do I need a personal injury attorney? Our knowledgeable personal injury attorneys can help you receive the full amount of compensation you deserve for the damages you experience. This is also the appropriate route for non-construction workers injured in a construction-related incident.Injuries can have long-term effects, and you may be able to receive compensation to cover medical costs, loss of normal life, lost wages, and pain and suffering. A Florida construction site accident attorney can also help you understand what you can qualify for through Workers’ Compensation and what you may be able to gain through filing a personal injury claim.
