Florida is known for its ever-growing population and expansion. To make Florida one of the most beautiful places to live and visit, construction sites can seem to be a constant in many Florida cities. Unfortunately, construction sites present unique and extremely dangerous conditions.
Construction site accidents often occur through the negligence or intentional misconduct of parties such as company owners, equipment manufacturers or general contractors. Accidents often occur when these individuals or entities fail to follow the laws regulating the construction site environment.
Although every case is different, construction injuries are most commonly caused by the following:
– Equipment defects
– Chemical or gas exposure
– Insufficient warning signs
– Lifting heavy equipment
– Exposure to live wires
– Falling debris
Injuries sustained in construction site accidents can be permanent and may even cause amputation or death. Possible injuries include, but are not limited to:
– Broken bones
– Head injuries
– Back injuries
– Burns or scars, leading to permanent disfigurement
Victims of construction site accidents can incur major physical, emotional and financial hardships. They may be entitled to receive compensation from the party at-fault for the accident, to cover the costs of any medical bills, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, or future medical care possibly incurred as a result of the accident.
