Miami, Plantation & Fort Lauderdale, Florida
The recent building boom across Florida has brought much needed jobs to communities in Broward County. Unfortunately, it has also brought a surge in construction accidents, many of which result in serious or fatal personal injuries.
When you are injured on a construction site, it can be difficult to know where to turn for help. In some instances workers’ compensation will be your best bet, but this option is not available to everyone who is injured on a construction site. What’s more, there may be a third-party who is liable for your injuries, entitling you to significantly more than workers’ compensation will typically offer.
For over 20 years, Fort Lauderdale construction accident lawyer Joseph Lipsky has been helping victims of serious injuries get maximum compensation. Working with a team of experts in various fields, attorney Lipsky can investigate your accident, identify your resources, and fight to get you every penny you deserve.
Types of Construction Accidents
Common causes of construction accidents include, but are not limited to:
- Ladder and scaffolding failures
- Unmaintained walkways
- Unsecured overhead debris
- Machinery or vehicle defects
- Electrical wires
- Chemical exposure
Many construction site accidents could be avoided if proper safety precautions were in place. Sadly, in an attempt to decrease both building time and expenses, corners are often cut. Cutting corners endangers workers and may make the negligent party liable for damages including medical expenses, lost wages, lifestyle modifications, physical pain, and emotional suffering.
