Construction Site Accident Lawyer – Lake Worth

Franks, Koenig, & Neuwelt

Construction Site Accident Lawyer – Lake Worth

Construction Site Accident Lawyer – Lake WorthDespite the fact that working in the construction industry is a notoriously dangerous enterprise, few construction companies take time to educate workers about their rights in the event of work-related injury or illness; thankfully, an experienced construction site accident lawyer – Lake Worth residents trust can help to meet that need. Our firm’s experienced legal team has assisted many, many injured construction workers with their legal claims over the years. We understand the federal, state, and local laws that impact such claims – both in a workers’ compensation context and a personal injury context.

Whether you’re eligible to pursue a claim for workers’ compensation benefits, a personal injury settlement, or both of these compensation opportunities will depend on the circumstances of your accident and the ways in which your employment is classified. Don’t worry – you don’t have to have “all the answers” to these questions to explore your legal options. On the contrary, scheduling a risk-free, no-obligation consultation without firm’s Lake Worth construction site accident lawyer team will allow you to ask questions about your options and will provide you with clarity so that you can make informed decisions about how you’d like to move forward.

Workers’ Compensation and Third-Party Claims for Construction Accidents

Generally speaking, full-time and part-time workers classified as “employees” are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits in the event of a work-related accident, no matter whose fault that accident was. There are a few exceptions made for workers of very small companies and workers who are drunk, intentionally setting themselves up to get hurt, and those who start altercations while on the job. However, most employees are entitled to benefits regardless of accident-related fault.

By contrast, independent contractors, workers in some specialty industries, and others who aren’t covered by the workers’ compensation system generally need to seek accident-related compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. However, some contractors who should be rightfully classified as employees are also eligible for workers’ compensation – although you’ll need to speak with an attorney before filing a claim if you’re in this situation.

Finally, some employees eligible for workers’ comp benefits can also file personal injury suits against defective equipment manufacturers, motorists, and other third parties, depending upon the circumstances of their accident scenarios. We can help you determine your eligibility for each of these legal options and we can help you pursue the path(s) that best fit your circumstances.

Legal Assistance Is Available

If you’ve been injured while working in the construction industry, you’re almost certainly entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and other “damages” related to your situation. Whether you’re eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, in a position to file a personal injury claim, or both, the experienced Florida legal team at The Law Offices of Franks, Koenig, & Neuwelt.

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.
