 Construction Site Accident Attorney Fort Pierce

Franks, Koenig, & Neuwelt

 Construction Site Accident Attorney Fort Pierce 

If you were working as an independent contractor when you were hurt on a construction jobsite, please connect with a construction site accident attorney Fort Pierce residents trust, and please do so as soon as you possibly can. As you may know by now, independent contractors aren’t – as a rule – eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. However, they are generally able to file personal injury claims as a means to receiving compensation for the harm they have suffered. Additionally, it may be possible to file a workers’ compensation if your status as an independent contractor has been misclassified.

When Independent Contractors Are Hurt Working Construction

Let’s look at the misclassification scenario first. Full-time and part-time workers are usually referred to as “employees.” By contrast, those workers who aren’t officially employed by an organization but perform paid work for that organization are generally classified as independent contractors. Unsure if you’re an independent contractor or not? Look at your latest paycheck. Did the organization that hired you withhold taxes from your income? If not, you’re classified as an independent contractor. Sometimes, companies either intentionally or unintentionally misclassify workers as independent contractors when they are – in reality – employees. If you’ve been misclassified (intentionally or unintentionally), you are entitled to certain benefits that you’re not yet receiving. One of these benefits is workers’ compensation coverage. The experienced Fort Piece construction site accident attorney team at our firm can determine whether you’ve been misclassified and are therefore potentially entitled to workers’ compensation benefits in the wake of your accident.

Assuming that you haven’t been misclassified, you’re probably not eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. However, you can likely submit one or more personal injury claims in the wake of your accident. This process progresses much like a car accident claim does. After speaking with the experienced Florida legal team at the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig, & Neuwelt, you’ll decide whether you want us to negotiate an insurance claim on your behalf and/or sue one or more of the parties that caused you harm. Depending on the unique circumstances surrounding your accident, you may be in a position to sue your employer, the manufacturer of defective construction equipment, a driver who struck you while you were working on a road crew, etc. There may also be more than one insurance company invested in your accident. Once you understand your options and choose the one that makes the most sense for you and your family, our firm will get to work protecting your rights and seeking any compensation to which you may be entitled.

Legal Assistance Is Available

You don’t have to deal with the legal and financial challenges of your accident alone. Our firm is here to help you understand your options and to advocate on your behalf once you decide how you would like to proceed. Please connect with our experienced Fort Piece construction site accident attorney team at our firm today to learn more.

Contact us today for a free consultation so we can discuss your situtaion.  It is not only important to talk to an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer when you have been hurt on the job, it is also the best way to make sure that you receive proper medical services and lost wages you are entitled to under the law. After all, the Workers’ Compensation law was created to protect you – the employee.

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.
