Construction Accident Lawyer Palm Beach

Franks, Koenig, & Neuwelt

Construction Accident Lawyer Palm Beach

Construction Accident Lawyer Palm BeachA Construction Accident Lawyer Palm Beach workers can depend on at the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt is well aware that working at a construction site can be one of the riskiest jobs in America. In fact, construction accidents result in the deaths or injury of thousands of workers each year and account for one in every five workplace fatalities. Construction injuries can happen when construction companies lack proper safety. Even though construction is a more dangerous job, this doesn’t mean that employers are not obligated to see that the workplace is reasonably free of hazards.

If you or someone you love was injured in a construction accident, then we encourage you to call or email our office as soon as possible for advice. 

When Workers Comp Benefits Aren’t Enough

After a construction site accident, an injured worker may be eligible to receive benefits through a workers compensation program. Benefits are paid weekly and a worker gets the medical attention they need to heal. However, a Palm Beach Construction Accident Lawyer knows that all too often these payments are not sufficient to cover the victim’s losses. Weekly payments are calculated based on the employee’s injury severity and percentage of weekly earnings.

Additionally, only treatments that are deemed necessary get covered by workers compensation. As we have seen in past cases, sometimes an employer will send an injured worker to a doctor that was pre-assigned, and this doctor may be biased in saving the company money. Depending on the situation, you may have the option in getting a second opinion from your primary physician, as a way to reduce the chances that the work-assigned doctor is mimizing the extent of your condition. 

When a Third Party May Be Liable

During a consultation, we may talk with you about whether a third part may be partially liable for your injury accident. For instance, the building owner, architects, contractors, subcontractors, and manufacturers of equipment may be held responsible for an accident that arose because of a lack of safety measures or faulty tools. As a construction worker, when you are performing tasks your employer and those who manage the construction project must ensure that:

  • Workers are warned of potential hazards on the construction site
  • Employees that are hired will use caution and safety when working
  • Safety protocols and protective equipment are always being used and followed

If we find that a third party is liable for your accident, then we can guide you through the process of seeking restitution from that entity.
