Construction Site Car Accidents
Construction sites in Miami are often dangerous areas for traffic accidents. These sites usually involve uneven road conditions, plenty of pedestrians and workers, trucks, equipment, and multiple cars. In cases where there are detours or extensive road work, construction sites can mean that drivers are distracted by the construction work going on and this can cause an accident. Traffic accidents, car accidents, pedestrian accidents, and truck accidents are all common in Miami construction sites for these reasons.

Construction Site Accidents in Miami are Often Complex
Construction accidents are often complex from a legal standpoint, since there may be multiple liable parties involved. The workers who are at the site may be partially liable if they have failed to provide safe passage for cars or have failed to provide adequate signage at the construction site. Other motorists at the construction site may be held liable if they were distracted and therefore caused a collision. In some cases, construction sites in Miami may be chaotic and it can take some investigation to uncover liable parties. Unfortunately, construction companies are often larger corporations with powerful teams of attorneys. Victims often need to work with experienced personal injury attorneys in Miami to get fair compensation for their injuries.
What to Do if You Have Been Injured at a Miami Construction Site
Construction site accidents in Miami often result in catastrophic injuries. Since there is so much heavy equipment at these sites, the potential for very serious injury and even fatalities is quite high. Each year, victims of head injuries, spinal cord injuries, fractures, burns, and other serious injuries are rushed to Miami emergency rooms after being injured in construction site accidents. If you have sustained a serious injury in this way, your first priority will be to get emergency medical help for you and for everyone else at the scene who may be injured.
Once immediate medical needs have been taken care of, you will want to consider your future. Car accidents in Miami can be very expensive for victims. The medical costs may be very high, especially if you needed emergency medical assistance or surgery. On-going medical care can also represent a substantial expense. In addition, you may need to miss work while you recover and you may need to pay for the repair or replacement of your car. Florida law allows you to seek a legal claim to recover some or all of these costs so that you do not have to pay out of pocket.
