Jobsite Catastrophic Injuries or Death Not – Covered by Workers’ Comp Tampa,  Florida

Jobsite Injuries or Death Not Covered by Employee Claims Lawyer

When a worker is injured on a jobsite in Florida, they are usually able to file a claim through workers’ compensation insurance. The laws in Florida restrict injury lawsuits against employers but require that all employers carry workers’ comp to cover injury accidents. However, there are catastrophic accidents where workers’ compensation does not cover an injury or the full extent of the loss. When this occurs, it may be possible to pursue compensation through a personal injury lawsuit.

Both workers and innocent bystanders can be seriously injured by jobsite accidents. These are most common at construction sites where heavy equipment is used and there are dangerous conditions. For example, a crane operator that drops materials that hit a worker or bystander could cause severe or fatal injuries. The victim and their family may face large medical costs, lost income, disability or death.

Workers Injured by Negligence or Third-Party Contractors

There are some instances where a worker or their family can file a catastrophic injury or wrongful death lawsuit in a jobsite accident. If it can be proven that the employer or other employees acted negligently, causing the accident, it may be possible to sue for damages. Another scenario where a worker can seek damages beyond workers’ compensation is if the accident was caused by a third-party contractor on the jobsite. The individual or their family may be able to sue the contractor for catastrophic injuries or death.

Bystanders Injured on a Construction Jobsite

If a person is injured on a jobsite but was not working on the jobsite, they or their family may seek restitution for injuries or death. These cases can be complicated, as there may be more than one company responsible for the injuries. The owner of the property, as well as contractors working on the jobsite, may be liable.

What Our Happy Clients say

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Sanders is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Sanders.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
