Florida's thriving economy and expanding cities are supported by a robust construction industry, driving significant growth and development. The many construction sites across the state mean more businesses and homes, but they can also mean more accidents and serious injuries.
Common workplace injuries on construction sites in Florida include:
- Slip and falls
- Injuries cause by falling objects
- Machinery malfunction injuries
- Occupational illness
- Transportation accidents
- Broken bones
- Sprains and strains
- Back and spinal cord injuries
- Head injuries
When a construction site accident occurs, victims often find themselves facing severe injuries, mounting medical bills, lost wages, and emotional distress. Workers’ compensation insurance in Florida is meant to help with this. It’s supposed to offer benefits that help workers pay for medical care, replace lost wages, and more.
The problem is that navigating the legal complexities of workers' compensation insurance claims and potential third-party personal injury claims is challenging. Construction workers are sometimes contractors or subcontractors, which can create additional confusion, and some insurers work to deny even legitimate claims.
