Construction Accident Lawyers
Construction accidents are an all too common occurrence in Florida.In Florida, we have an abundance of construction sites because of the ongoing growth in our state, as well as all of our recovery efforts from hurricane damage.
The Orlando construction accident lawyers at Colling Gilbert Wright & Carter have the resources and experience to make sure you get the compensation you deserve from the responsible parties regardless of who caused the accident.
Construction accidents can cause virtually every type of injury, including severe injuries such as brain injuries, broken bones and even death. Many different things can cause construction accidents, including:
- Ladder falls
- Faulty equipment
- Unguarded machinery
- Defective tools
- Careless co-workers
- Scaffold falls
- Heavy machinery accidents
We have successfully handled a number of construction accident lawsuits ,including one in which our client was severely injured by falling debris from a construction site, and another involving a fall from a defective scaffold.
Construction accidents happen to people both working for the construction company as well as visitors or people passing by the construction site. When a construction worker is injured on the construction site, he may be able to recover workers compensation. In some cases, depending on what caused the accident, construction workers may be entitled to recover from third parties outside of the workers compensation system.
Construction accidents can be complex because of the many parties involved in the construction site including the owner, the general contractor and multiple subcontractors. Sometimes, when the accident is caused by defective machinery, the manufacturer of the defective equipment may also be responsible for the injuries.
