Florida Construction Accidents
Recover Your Compensation with the Help of Our Sarasota Personal Injury Attorneys
Construction is widely known as one of the dangerous professions in the United States. Due to hazardous work conditions, construction companies and employers are obligated to provide proper training, safety procedures and administer routine maintenance on machinery. Unfortunately, these rules and protocols are often ignored, leading to serious injuries and even fatalities.
If you sustained an injury due to the negligent and reckless actions of the construction company, employer, manager or co-worker, you may be eligible to recover compensation for these damages. Our Sarasota personal injury attorneys possess the comprehensive knowledge of Florida’s legal system to provide you with the solid representation you need to obtain a favorable outcome.
Common Causes of Construction Accidents
The majority of these hazardous and deadly construction accidents could have been prevented. Companies and employers understand the guidelines administered by OSHA and other regulatory entities. However, companies typically ignore these protocols in order to save money and time, which subsequently places the health and lives of their employees at risk.
Common causes of injury or death on a construction site include the following:
- Falls from heights or scaffolding
- Slips and falls
- Falling objects and debris
- Fires and explosions
- Machinery accidents
- Construction vehicle crashes
- Misuse of machinery
- Failure to perform machinery maintenance
