Tampa Construction Accident Lawyer

Working on a construction site is one of the most dangerous jobs a person can take on. Every year countless workers suffer from severe injuries due to on-the-job accidents. Unfortunately, most of these accidents happen because of the construction company’s failure to provide their workers with the proper training or implement the necessary safety measures.

If you were in an accident while working on a development site, reach out to one of our Tampa construction accident lawyers as soon as possible to discuss your case. By seeking qualified representation from our personal injury attorneys, you can improve your chances of recovering compensation.

Typical Accidents on Construction Sites in Tampa

Construction workers face several risks every day. However, many accidents can be avoided with proper safety measures. The most common types of construction accidents that our personal injury lawyers have dealt with involve:

The conditions leading up to your accident will play a large role in how your attorney handles your case. If you need help determining the cause of your accident, you should reach out to an experienced attorney in the area as soon as possible.

Is Workers Compensation Available to All Injured Construction Workers?

Florida Statutes § 440.02 states that construction companies must provide all employees with workers’ compensation, regardless of how many employees work for the company. If you suffer an injury while on the job, you are eligible to apply for benefits.

You must report your workplace accident within 30 days of the incident to qualify for benefits, but it is best to file your report within the next few days. To receive the maximum amount of benefits for your injuries, you should reach out to a knowledgeable construction site injury attorney in Tampa soon after the accident occurs. While our firm does not handle direct worker’s compensation cases, we can refer you to a trusted attorney who does. However, we do handle third- party claims for worker’s compensation accident.

What Are Third-Party Claims for Construction Accidents and When are They Appropriate?

Workers’ compensation benefits do not always fully address your injuries and losses, so you should avoid accepting a settlement too soon. There are other options for collecting compensation after a construction accident.

If a defective power tool or heavy machine caused your accident, you have the right to sue the manufacturer of that product. Your claim will need to establish that the product was unsafe when it left the manufacturer and that there was no warning of the risk of unreasonable danger.

If you were injured because the property owner failed to maintain their land, you should pursue a premises liability claim against that person as well. Our skilled lawyers can work with you to bring a lawsuit against the defective product manufacturer after your construction site accident.
