Compensation You Could Recover After a Miami Construction Accident
If you have sustained injuries while working on a construction site in the Miami area, you likely have medical expenses, income loss due to the time you missed from work, and other damages. If your employer offers workers’ compensation benefits, you can apply for them, and we can refer you to an excellent lawyer who handles workers’ compensation cases while we handle the case against any responsible third parties.
In Florida, construction employers with one or more employees must have workers’ compensation. If you suffered an on-the-job injury at a Miami-area construction site, you must report your injury or illness promptly.
A construction accident can cause other losses that worker’s compensation does not cover. If your case involves a negligent third party, you could seek compensation for pain and suffering and other losses, such as:
- Medical expenses
- Lost income
- Lost earning capacity
- Mental anguish
- Emotional distress
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Impaired quality of life
- Property damages
- Funeral and burial expenses (if your loved one suffered fatal injuries on a Miami construction site; if so, our wrongful death attorney can review your case.)
Who’s a Third Party in a Miami Construction Site Accident?
Any of the following can be third parties in a construction accident:
- Property owners or property managers
- General contractors
- Vehicle drivers
- Product makers
- Equipment suppliers or manufacturers
- Substance manufacturers
- Delivery drivers
We Will Protect Your Right to Sue and Keep You From Accepting a Too-Low Insurance Settlement
Our Miami construction accident lawyer will identify all potentially liable third parties in your case and seek recovery from each after determining how their negligence caused your injury. We will protect your right to sue as Florida law limits the time you have to pursue an injury or wrongful death damages case.
Per Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a), you generally have two years to bring an injury case against a third party. If you are seeking to file a wrongful death lawsuit against a third party, you also generally have two years, per Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(d). We will ensure we file your case within the statute of limitations that applies to your case.

What to Do After a Miami Construction Accident
Suffering an injury on the job can be frightening, overwhelming, and stressful. However, you can do a few things to manage the situation.
Seek Prompt Medical Help
First, seek medical help right away for any injuries you suffer, no matter how minor they appear. Getting prompt treatment ensures you receive care for the injuries you can see and those you can’t. Certain injuries can take days or weeks to emerge, and even those that appear small at first can become significant later. You also may not know how your health situation will change until more time passes, so getting help can prepare you for possible outcomes.
Getting medical help right after an accident also provides documentation showing how your injuries directly caused the accident. This can help your injury case for benefits or a lawsuit. Make sure you follow all your doctor’s orders and complete all recommended treatments.
Report the Incident
As noted earlier, you should promptly report the accident and your injuries to your employer. Fill out an accident report and include as many details as you can. You will also want a copy of the report. You can also get the contact information of witnesses and take photos and video footage of the accident scene and your injuries if you are physically able to do so.
