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.

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 had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
