Construction sites have the potential to be dangerous, whether they are for a skyscraper, bridge or home. The same basic hazards apply to most sites: elevated heights, heavy equipment, and human error.
If you have been injured while working construction in Florida, you are entitled to workers' compensation benefits. You may need a lawyer's help to get the benefits you need. However, it is not unusual for claims to be denied. The Miami workers' compensation attorneys at Touby, Chait & Sicking, PL, can review your claim and help you appeal a denial.
These types of work accidents tend to cause catastrophic injuries such as brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, burns and broken bones. However, we can also help you with repetitive trauma injuries that occur in construction work — and all work accidents — such as carpal tunnel syndrome, back pain, and joint injuries.
In addition to your workers' comp case, you may have a case against a negligent third party. In these cases, you may be able to recover financial damages for losses that are not included in workers' compensation such as pain and suffering. When we review your case, we will discuss the possibility of a third-party case with you.
