Construction Site Accident Attorney Lake Worth
If an accident or working conditions on a construction site have caused you to fall ill, it’s time to speak with a construction site accident attorney Lake Worth residents trust. There is a great deal of discussion in the media about how dangerous construction work sites can be when it comes to physical injury, such as head trauma, lacerations, broken bones, etc. However, there is too little discussion about the dangers of construction sites as their conditions relate to work-acquired illness. With the possible exceptions of the work that occurred at Ground Zero and the burn pits that affected servicemembers serving overseas, there has been virtually no discussion in the broader media of what working on construction sites and other high-risk worksites can mean for illness rates in workers.
The hard-working team at the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt does not shy away from work-related illness cases. Although these cases can be more difficult to pursue than straightforward “accident results in obvious physical injury” cases, our team doesn’t hesitate to protect the rights of workers who have fallen ill on the job. It is our honor and privilege to stand up for the rights of workers who have fallen ill on the job and to help them secure rightful compensation.
When Toxic Exposure on Construction Sites Leads to Illness
It’s important to connect with a Lake Worth construction site accident attorney at our firm, regardless of whether you have fallen ill as a result of a job site accident or as a result of cumulative exposure to toxic or otherwise harmful substances while on the job. Each of these claims can be “trickier” to resolve successfully than injurious accident claims tend to be. However, our firm has significant experience handling all kinds of work-related personal injury claims and workers’ compensation claims, so we’ll be able to handle your legal needs as efficiently and effectively as possible.
If you’re eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, we’ll take a different approach to your case than we will if you’re “only” eligible to file a personal injury claim against those responsible for the harm you have suffered. This is simply because workers’ compensation claims require that we navigate a different process than personal injury claims do. With that said, it’s possible that your situation falls under one of the rare exceptions that will allow you to pursue both a workers’ compensation claim and a personal injury claim. Once we know more about the specifics of your situation, we’ll be able to advise you of your options accordingly.
