MEYERS & STANLEY REPRESENT CONSTRUCTION SITE ACCIDENT VICTIMS
Construction sites are inherently dangerous workplaces. In fact, one out of five worker deaths in the United States involves construction workers. Every ladder, walkway, platform, piece of heavy equipment/machinery or scaffold has the potential to seriously injure a worker at the site. Many different companies or businesses may be responsible for causing injury on a construction site. Steve and Al have the experience and “know how” to forcefully assert your rights to compensation and fight for the financial justice you deserve. We represent workers injured on sites throughout Florida and guide you through the complex factual and legal requirements necessary to win.
MEYERS AND STANLEY HELP VICTIMS OF ALL TYPES OF CONSTRUCTION INJURY CLAIMS
Nearly every product, tool or machine on a construction site is capable of causing injury, especially when mandated safety procedures are not followed by site owners and operators. Workers may suffer injuries caused by:
- Falls from scaffolds or platforms;
- Falling equipment such as hammers, saws, and other construction tools;
- Burns and electrocution;
- Exposure to dangerous materials, including toxic chemicals, and
- Negligent operation of heavy equipment and machinery.
common causes of worksite deaths are falls, falling and moving
objects, electrocutions, and workers getting caught between moving
structures. Al and Steve seek full damages for injured workers and
their families, regardless of the complexity of the accident
AL & STEVE HELP ALL WORKERS INJURED IN WORKSITE ACCIDENTS
If you have been hurt on a Florida construction site, you will have different legal rights and remedies depending on the cause of your injury. Many different companies or business entities may be responsible for the actions or conditions that caused your injury. Al and Steve will be able to help you file a workers’ compensation claim and bring third-party claims against other responsible parties when appropriate.
Workers’ compensation is a no-fault based insurance system in which employers provide benefits for injured workers. This process is the first and initial way for injured construction workers to get their medical bills, wages, and other costs paid when they're injured on the job. But many times others on the worksite cause the accident and are responsible for losses and damages well in excess of workers’ compensation benefits. When a construction accident is fatal, Steve and Al will work vigorously to get the victim's family justice. Families might be entitled to workers' compensation death benefits that include reimbursement for funeral expenses and wage replacement. If the accident was caused by a third party's negligence (companies or persons other than the employer), we will assist your family in bringing a wrongful death lawsuit that seeks full compensation for the entire range of losses that aren't included under the workers' compensation law.
