According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2016, there were 10.3 million U.S. workers employed by the construction industry. Unfortunately, due to the rigorous nature of the profession, many of these workers routinely face hazards that put their safety in jeopardy. If you or a loved one was injured while working on a construction site, you have legal options when it comes to pursuing compensation for your accident-related expenses.
At the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine, when it comes to seeking financial recovery in these types of accidents, we can:
- Investigate the circumstances of your accident
- Work with third-party medical professionals to learn more about your injuries
- Collect pertinent evidence
- Estimate the cost of your expenses
- Review photos and videos of the accident scene, if available
- Take your case to court, if we cannot reach a settlement otherwise
Under Florida Statute 95.11, you generally have four years from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit against the responsible party. Depending on when your accident happened, you may have a limited time to take action.
To get started with a free, no-obligation case review, call the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine at 1-800-747-3733.
Causes of Actionable Construction Accidents
You generally cannot sue your employer in the state of Florida. This means that if you were in a construction accident, how your accident occurred will play a part in who you can pursue for your damages. For example, if you were injured by a machine that malfunctioned, you would not sue your employer. Instead, you would file a product liability claim against the company that manufactured the machine.
An Oviedo construction accident lawyer can review the details of your accident, and from there, determine who should be responsible for your losses.
Some elements that may have played a role in your injuries could include:
- Being crushed between objects
- Heavy machinery failure
- Structural collapse
- Physical exposure to toxic chemicals, such as asbestos
- Heatstroke, or other long-hours-based ailments
The cause of your injury may not be listed here. Either way, you have legal options available. To learn what they are, call the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine today. Your free consultation is waiting at 1-800-747-3733.
