Causes of Florida Construction Accidents
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:
- Faulty Equipment
- Debris that Creates Tripping Hazards
- Failure to Warn Employees of Dangerous Conditions
- Unstable Scaffolds or Walkways
- Operators of Heavy Machinery Failing to See Workers on the Ground
- Falling Objects
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 Trial Attorneys for experienced representation. We can walk you through the workers’ compensation process so you get the benefits you deserve.Contact us Today

Frequently Asked Questions
Responsibility for a construction accident can be attributed to various parties including the construction company, contractors, architects, engineers, equipment manufacturers, and even government entities.
If you are involved in a construction accident, seek medical attention immediately and report the accident to your supervisor or employer. It is also important to gather evidence such as photos and witness statements, and to consult with an experienced construction accident lawyer.
Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to file a lawsuit for a construction accident. This will depend on factors such as who is responsible for the accident, the severity of the injuries, and the impact on your life and livelihood.
Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to recover damages for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related expenses. In some cases, you may also be able to recover punitive damages if the responsible party acted with gross negligence or intentional misconduct.
The statute of limitations for construction accident lawsuits varies by state and by type of claim. In Florida, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims arising from construction accidents is generally four years from the date of the accident, but it is important to consult with a lawyer to ensure you meet all deadlines and requirements.
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 Trial Attorneys 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.
