Frequently Asked Questions About Construction Accident Injury Claims In Hollywood, Florida

FAQ: I was injured in a construction accident and — in addition to my physical injuries — I suffer from trauma and stress from the accident. Can I recover compensation for emotional pain and suffering?

If your construction accident was caused by someone else’s negligent actions, then the answer is yes. Personal injury law protects those who have suffered emotional pain and suffering in an accident by providing a method — filing a personal injury claim against the at-fault party — for the injured person to recover damages. Some of the non-monetary damages that the injured person can recover are emotional pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment in life, mental anguish, and loss of companionship. To assign a monetary value to these immeasurable losses, the Florida court considers all aspects of a personal injury claim to determine a cost.

FAQ: Who can be considered liable for a construction accident in Florida?

A construction accident may be caused by negligence on the part of one entity or several entities. Whoever is responsible for ensuring the safety of the workers and the safety of the work environment itself may be considered liable for the construction accident. Equipment manufacturers, engineers, on-site contractors, and architects can be liable. An employer may be deemed negligent and the injured worker may be responsible as well. If there is a workplace accident, the injured worker can receive workers’ compensation benefits which do not require proving any fault.
