Coral Springs Construction Accident Attorney

Serving Coral Springs and Pompano Beach, Florida and Surrounding Communities

The construction industry has one of the highest rates of injury and accidents for its employees. Because of the use of high-powered equipment, tools, and vehicles, along with scaffolding, ladders, and a constantly changing site, construction workers and even passersby may sustain serious injuries. Construction workers may fall from scaffolding or beams, be hurt by falling debris or other objects, sustain burns or electrocutions, or be injured in accidents involving cranes, earth movers, heavy trucks, hydraulics, caterpillars, and other equipment. These types of accidents may be the result of unsafe equipment, unsafe working conditions, or inadequate training.

If you or someone you know has been seriously injured in a construction accident that was caused by the negligence or wrongdoing of another, it is crucial that you contact me to discuss the circumstances surrounding the incident. As a Pompano Beach construction accident lawyer, I can evaluate the situation to determine if legal action beyond workmen’s compensation may be taken on your behalf. In some cases, additional damages may be recovered for construction site victims through a personal injury claim or lawsuit.

Under Florida law, a construction worker injured in a workplace accident may make a claim for damages under workmen’s compensation for medical expenses, wages, future medical care, or vocational rehabilitation. However, additional damages, such as for pain and suffering, may be obtained under some circumstances, such as when equipment has been defective or a responsible party has failed to maintain safety regulations. In these cases, a personal injury attorney such as myself is needed to protect the rights of construction workers and to ensure that they receive the full compensation to which they may be entitled. I urge you to contact my office to schedule a consultation about your construction accident as soon as possible.
