Employers have a responsibility to provide workers with a safe environment and adequate safety training so accidents can be avoided. However, many employers fail to perform their due diligence. Even when they do follow regulations, the nature of construction work can be unpredictable. Employees can easily find themselves in a hazardous situation. Common causes of construction accidents include:
Any of these situations can result in a severe injury or even death. If you’ve been involved in a construction accident and are unable to work, contact Felice & Ehrlich for experienced representation. We can walk you through the workers’ compensation process so you get the benefits you deserve.
Falls are the leading cause of death in the construction industry. Moreover, some other types of accidents often lead to serious injuries. Some of the most common injuries sustained in construction accidents include:
In addition to these injuries, construction workers are also susceptible to developing occupational illnesses due to exposure to toxic materials. Any of these injuries can lead to permanent disability or require ongoing medical treatment. Furthermore, a severe injury can leave you unable to return to work for an extended amount of time. If this is the case, you may qualify for workers’ compensation benefits to help pay for medical bills and lost wages.
If you’ve been seriously injured in a construction accident and have been denied workers’ compensation benefits either by the insurance company or your employer, Felice & Ehrlich can help. Keep in mind that insurance providers want to pay out as little as possible. They may try to claim your injury wasn’t related to a construction accident or that you had a preexisting condition that was exacerbated by the accident. Even your employer can deny your claim to avoid an increase in their premiums.
We’ll examine the details of your accident, speak to witnesses, and analyze your medical records to prove your injuries were a direct result of a workplace accident. Our attorneys have years of experience negotiating on behalf of clients to obtain the appropriate workers’ compensation benefits. If we’re not able to negotiate a settlement, we’re not afraid to fight for your rights in a court of law.
If you’ve been seriously injured in a construction accident, Florida’s workers’ compensation laws are in place to protect you. However, if you’re having trouble obtaining benefits, our Florida workers’ compensation attorneys at Felice, Ehrlich & Naparstek can help. It’s our goal to help you make a full recovery so you and your family can move past this traumatic event. Contact us at (561) 444-8822 to schedule a free initial consultation.
