Construction Accident Lawsuits
When a construction worker is injured on the job or when an innocent victim sustains injury on a construction site, that person may file a construction accident lawsuit to pursue compensation for physical, financial, and emotional damages. According to our Florida construction zone negligence lawyers, victims might be able to file one or more of the following types of claims:
If the injured party can prove that a third party’s negligence or acts caused or contributed to his or her suffering, there may be grounds for a personal injury lawsuit.
Commonly known as “workers’ comp.” this type of lawsuit may arise when an injured worker needs to pursue compensation from his or her employer through a workers’ compensation insurance policy. Under Florida law, an injured worker must only prove the fact that he or she was injured, no matter what circumstances contributed to that injury.
In some cases, a construction accident injury may be traced to a dangerous or defective product, such as faulty equipment or tools. When this happens, a number of parties may become defendants in a product liability lawsuit, including manufacturers, retailers, or even advertisers who wrongfully represented the product.
When a construction worker dies on the job or as a result of injuries sustained at work, that person’s family may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
