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

FAQ: How much time do I have to decide whether to file a claim for my crane accident?

In Florida, the statute of limitations for filing an injury claim in the civil court is four years from the time the accident occurred. If you are filing a workers’ compensation claim in Florida, you must notify your employer of the injury within 30 days of the accident. If, however, your condition or illness develops over time, you are required to notify your employer within 30 days of the time you discovered that your injury was a result of your accident. Failure to notify your employer according to these deadlines may result in a loss of all or some of your benefits.

FAQ: Besides my employer, who else may be held liable for my crane accident?

If you were injured in a crane accident, there may be other third parties who can be considered liable for your accident. For example, if the crane was defective, you may file a lawsuit against the crane manufacturer. If another contractor was in charge of the construction site, you may be able to hold them accountable.
