West Palm Beach Construction Accident Lawyer
Construction Accident Cases in West Palm Beach
The construction trade has many hazards that create risk to workers in the best of circumstances. A firm that has all safety procedures in place could have an unexpected accident. Companies that have failed to protect the safety of their workers can create an extremely hazardous working environment. Falling ladders, trench collapses, scaffolding collapses, falling tools, and electrical hazards can lead to serious or permanent injuries or death.
Workers’ Comp Benefits and Third Party Claims
Under Florida law, construction workers have the right to get benefits if injured on the job. Although workers’ compensation law allows for benefits to be paid for medical care and treatment, a percentage of lost wages and some other damages, these benefits could be sorely inadequate. It is imperative that you have your case evaluated by our West Palm Beach personal injury lawyer to determine if there is other possible forms of compensation that could be sought. We also can ensure that you are receiving all of the benefits you are due under the law. In cases of wrongful death, we urge you to contact us so that your family does not suffer needless financial stress while you try to move forward with your life after the tragic death of your loved one.
There are various factors that could allow for a higher level of compensation than you would get from workers’ compensation benefits. For example, if the accident was partially or fully the result of equipment failure, or another company that was negligent and was working the site, it may be possible to file a lawsuit or claim to seek damages. Whether the construction accident resulted in permanent disability, a serious injury that will require a long period of medical treatment and rehabilitation, or your loved one died as a result of the accident, our West Palm Beach construction accident attorney can help you immediately.
