Tampa Construction Accidents Injury Lawyer
Some of the worst work-related injuries occur on construction sites. The heavy equipment used and hazardous conditions can make these work areas dangerous for workers, resulting in serious injuries. When a construction accident occurs, injured employees are eligible to seek compensation. However, there are times when the limited funds available through workers’ compensation are not enough to cover serious injuries.
In Florida, all employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. If a construction worker is injured on the job, they can file a claim to receive coverage for their medical costs and lost income if they are unable to work. However, like any insurance coverage, there are discrepancies in how much is paid out to victims. Having a workers’ compensation attorney can help fight to receive the maximum benefit allowed to cover the costs of the injury.
