Florida Construction Site Accidents
Construction laws are complicated by the liability shared by:
- property owners
Moreover, the relationship between the victim and the work site gives rise to different rights and liabilities. A bystander, for instance, could exercise a claim against the general contractor. When accidents affect workers, employee injury laws and the Federal Occupational Safety and Health Agency (OSHA) become involved.
Workers’ compensation is often the first form of relief available to an injured worker. However, it rarely compensates an individual fully for lost wages, and cannot compensate an injured worker for medical benefits, continued disability, and pain and suffering. Workers’ comp and personal injury cases must be pursued in concert to maximize the benefits of both cases.
