Construction Accident Lawyer Fort Pierce Construction Accident Lawyer Fort Pierce

Construction work is notoriously dangerous. In a perfect world, every employer would adhere to every conceivable safety precaution and jobsite accidents would become (with few exceptions) a thing of the past. However, even on very safe job sites, human error, inclement weather, and other inevitable forces help to ensure that accidents will happen from time to time. There is no amount of money available that can compensate someone fully for the trauma associated with being hurt at work. However, workers’ compensation benefits and other legal remedies do help to ensure that injured construction workers are not saddled with the responsibility of paying medical bills and enduring the challenge of lost wages. As a result, if you’ve been hurt on a jobsite, it’s important to speak with an experienced Fort Pierce construction accident lawyer about filing a workers’ compensation claim in the wake of your accident. Unsure of whether you’re eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits? Don’t panic. Our Fort Pierce construction accident lawyer team can help you make that determination.

Workers’ Compensation Benefits Eligibility – Considerations

Generally speaking, workers’ compensation benefits are available to almost all individuals who are hired employees of a construction crew. There are some exceptions made under the law for businesses of a certain size. However, most businesses are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance for their part-time and full-time workers. By contrast, independent contractors and volunteers are generally not eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. With that said, some companies (either willfully or mistakenly) misclassify employees who should be eligible for benefits as contractors. This is one of the reasons why it is important to speak with a Fort Pierce construction accident lawyer if you’ve been hurt on the job as an independent contractor. You may think that you’re ineligible for benefits, when in reality, you are eligible for benefits.

It’s important to note that even those construction workers who are ineligible for workers’ compensation benefits do have alternative legal remedies available to them in the wake of an accident. Generally, it is only when a worker intentionally causes an accident, starts a fight, or is impaired by drugs or alcohol at the time of an accident that there are no legal remedies available.

My husband was hurt and never dealt with an attorney before. He looked up attorneys online & thru the grace of God got Lissa Dorsey as his attorney & she was truly amazing! She was very involved, always returned our phone calls & made the whole process as easy for us as she possibly could while my husband treated with Dr's and started his healing process. I would recommend her to any & everyone without a doubt.
