Frequently Asked Questions About Construction Accidents In Palm Beach County and Broward County, Florida

FAQ: In Florida, who can be considered liable for construction accident injuries?

While workers’ compensation benefits are available to workers who are injured at the workplace or in the course of performing job duties, those benefits are provided regardless of who is at fault for the accident. In pursuing a personal injury claim for the injuries you sustained in a construction accident, multiple parties might be liable for your accident, including negligent property site owners, contractors, architects, engineers, equipment manufacturers, and other third parties.

FAQ: I was hurt in a construction accident but I am reluctant to file a workers’ compensation claim because I am afraid my employer will penalize me for doing so. Are there any protections in place for workers who file claims against employers?

Yes. If you were injured in a construction accident, you may file a workers’ compensation claim without fear of being penalized by your employer. The whole premise of workers’ compensation laws is to protect both the worker and the employer when there is an accident. Under these laws, employers are prohibited from firing, punishing, or retaliating against an employee who files a worker’s compensation claim. Employers are also protected — when an employee files a workers’ compensation claim, they forgo the right to file a lawsuit against the employer or any of their co-workers for any additional compensation.
