Miami Beach Construction Injury Lawyer
Whether you were a passer-by or a worker employed on a construction site, if you were injured in a construction site accident in Miami Beach you may be able to receive compensation for your pain and suffering, medical bills, and more. Property owners, contractors, sub-contractors, or product manufacturers and suppliers may have been responsible for the accident, and such parties may be held liable for the costs related to the harm you have suffered.
Injured employees may have some expenses covered quickly and without much difficulty by Workers’ Compensation insurance; however, Workers’ Compensation doesn’t compensate victims for all of their harm. For example, Workers’ Compensation benefits don’t include coverage for pain and suffering. However, if a work-related accident was caused by a defective product (such as inadequate scaffolding, toxic substances, or safety equipment that fails), product liability laws would require the manufacturer and suppliers of the defective product to compensate the injured victim for his or her pain and suffering, as well as for medical bills, lost wages, impaired ability to earn an living, and more.
Construction work often requires stamina and strength, and construction site accidents sometimes leave people unable to return to the only kind of work they know. Such accidents often lead to catastrophic injuries, including loss of limbs or spinal cord and brain injuries. In such cases, the consequences of construction site accidents last a lifetime, and impact entire families.
