Our Florida PI law firm is dedicated to helping protect the rights of those injured on the job. However, Florida’s Workers Compensation Statute Section 440 has very strict rules as to who can be held responsible for an injured employee.
Generally, employees who are injured cannot bring a direct claim for negligence against their employers. However, in complex cases where employees are injured on the job by conduct of a third party they are entitled to compensation from that third party.
We represent Florida’s construction and road workers who are injured by passing cars and trucks. This often happens as a result of working at night or in heavy traffic. It is important that employers provide road workers with a safe workplace and high-visibility clothing. According to the United States Department of Transportation, employers are responsible for providing the following on every roadside construction site:
- High-visibility Apparel
- Worker Training
- Activity Area Planning
- Speed Control
- Positive Separation
- Worker Safety Planning
- Special Devices
Our Florida lawyers help injured workers who have claims. These include injuries in car and truck accidents, construction site accidents, road side traffic accidents, and defective equipment accidents.
If you are injured while working, you should seek immediate medical care, report the incident to your employer, and contact our office for a free consultation regarding your legal rights.
Construction projects can be very dangerous and carry a high risk for injury to employees. Accidents involving scaffolding, cranes, electrical fires, bulldozer or defective equipment are common. Workers exposed to job site hazards can sustain injuries that include serious burns, brain damage or spinal cord injuries.
The lawyers at Aronfeld Trial Lawyers have the experience and expertise to help injured construction workers obtain compensation for catastrophic injuries caused by careless construction companies.
