Construction workers are exposed to a significant number of work hazards. Construction workers often have to endure long hours, perform repetitive motions that strain their muscles, and must operate extremely heavy machinery.
Plus, they often have to operate from high places or near toxic materials. These and a number of other reasons make construction work one of the most dangerous jobs in America.
If you have been injured in a construction accident and need to speak with an experienced injury lawyer, contact Raymond Ravis Attorney at Law. Based in Jacksonville, we handle construction accident claims in the nearby communities as well as statewide. We will help you calculate your losses, file a claim, and fight for the fair and just compensation you deserve.
Construction accidents can occur for myriad reasons, from a failure to follow safety protocols to sudden explosions. Injuries may develop over time, such as can be the case with toxic exposure, or occur suddenly, such as a fall from a ladder. When the accident occurred to someone’s negligence, that person (or company) can be held responsible for the injured person’s losses.
Common causes of construction worker injuries include:
If you have been injured on the job, you may have been told by your employer or a co-worker that workers’ compensation is your only available means of recovery. The information you received may not be accurate.
If you were injured by a third party (someone other than your employer or a co-worker, such as a subcontractor), you may be able to obtain compensation through a third-party liability claim. As third-party liability claims are personal injury claims, you may seek types of compensation that may not be available in a workers’ compensation claim, such as compensation for your pain and suffering.
We are pleased to offer a free consultation to answer your questions and help you understand your options. During your consultation, we can help you determine if you have a basis to pursue compensation through a third-party liability claim.
