Steps to Take After a Construction Accident
Florida workers who are injured on the job have two possible avenues for compensation after an injury at the workplace. One option is a workers’ compensation claim. This avenue is available to all construction workers who are employed by a company that provides workers’ compensation insurance. If your accident occurred while you were performing your job duties, workers’ compensation insurance could provide the financial restitution you need.
On the other hand, some workers have the option of filing third party liability claims, that is, a lawsuit against a third party (not your employer) who is allegedly responsible for the incident that led to your injury. It can be difficult to know what your legal rights and options are after a construction accident, which is why we encourage all injured construction workers, or a family member, to contact us for a free consultation.
