Florida Construction Site Injury Attorney

Construction companies and third party contractors are required to comply with OSHA standards. When accidents happen, both can be held liable if OSHA standards or state safety regulations were violated. Since most construction companies and third party contractors are reluctant to admit fault, it’s important to work with an attorney who can investigate the cause of an accident and protect your job at the same time.

At Ferrer & Gonzalez, PL, our attorneys expose negligence on the part of third party contractors and construction companies that results in serious injury or fatalities. We also put employers on notice who try to intimidate or coerce injured workers into silence or giving up their rights.

If you’ve been injured in a construction accident or have lost a family member in a wrongful death case, contact a personal injury lawyer at Ferrer & Gonzalez, PL, today to schedule a free consultation and discuss your case.

Workers Compensation, Third Party Liability and Construction Accidents

While it is true that your employer’s worker’s compensation insurance will cover medical costs and lost wages, depending on the severity of your injuries, it may not be enough. In accidents involving brain injuries, spinal cord injuries or wrongful death, the amount recovered through worker’s compensation may not cover other costs associated with long-term disability or the loss of a wage earner.

If a third party contractor or subcontractor was responsible for causing the accident that injured you, pursuing damages against him or her may be in your best interest. Recovering additional medical costs or damages for your pain and suffering can help defray losses if your injuries prevent you from working further or involve long-term disability.
