Frequently Asked Questions About Construction Accident Burn Injuries In Palm Beach County and Broward County, Florida

I suffered a burn injury in a construction accident in Florida. Does Florida have a legal deadline for filing a workers’ compensation claim?

Yes. In Florida, the statute of limitations — the legal deadline for filing claims in the civil court, which is established by each state — is two years for filing a petition for benefits. There are exceptions to this deadline, however, so it is best to consult with an experienced Florida personal injury attorney if you are concerned you may be unable to meet this statutory deadline. Florida workers are also required to report the injury to their employer within 30 days, but there are exceptions to this deadline as well.

I suffered burns while I was working at a construction site. If I file a workers’ compensation claim, can I also sue my employer for the negligence that caused the accident?

When you file a workers’ compensation claim to receive benefits for your workplace injury, you relinquish the right to file a lawsuit against your employer or any of your co-workers for additional compensation. Workers’ compensation benefits include coverage for reasonable and necessary medical treatment, temporary disability, permanent partial and total disability, and vocational rehabilitation and do not cover emotional pain and suffering, loss of life enjoyment, the cost of future anticipated medical treatment, and other losses. If you file a workers’ compensation claim against your employer, you may still file a personal injury claim against another third party who bears responsibility for your accident. To determine the best course of action regarding your specific construction accident burn injury, schedule a free consultation with an experienced workers’ compensation and personal injury attorney at Lawlor, White & Murphey — we are available to answer your questions and evaluate your case at no charge to you.
