Workers’ Compensation – Frequently Asked Questions

Construction workers who have been injured while engaging in work-related activities should connect with a reputable construction accident lawyer Palm Beach, FL construction professionals trust, and they should do so as quickly as possible. Why? Some of the opportunities for financial recourse made available to injured construction workers are extremely time sensitive.

If you’ve been injured while working construction, to preserve your options and protect your rights, schedule a free case review with The Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt today. Once we’re familiar with the details of your unique situation, we can personalize answers to the FAQs listed below as they apply to your distinct circumstances.

Is Workers’ Compensation Available to Injured Construction Workers?

Most workers who are classified as part-time or full-time employees are eligible for workers’ compensation coverage in Florida, regardless of their documentation status. Most independent contractors (who should not rightfully be classified as employees) are not eligible for this coverage. To qualify for a workers’ comp benefit award, a worker must have been injured while engaged in work-related activity.

Can Construction Workers File Personal Injury Lawsuits?

Injured construction workers can file personal injury lawsuits when they can name a party other than their employer as a defendant in their case. Employers who pay into the workers’ comp system are generally protected from liability when their eligible workers suffer physical harm on the job. But, if someone other than a worker’s employer engaged in negligent, reckless, or intentionally dangerous conduct and the employee suffered work-related harm as a result of that conduct, the worker may be able to sue them for damages.

Do Injured Workers Need a Lawyer’s Help to File Workers’ Compensation Claims?

If your injury only caused you to miss a few days of work and your medical bills will cost you almost nothing, your situation is low-stakes enough that you can file a workers’ comp claim without the assistance of an experienced Palm Beach construction accident lawyer if you choose to. But, if your injuries are severe, are likely to result in long-term consequences, will take significant time to heal, etc., your case is likely complex enough and high-stakes enough that you’ll want an attorney advocating for your interests throughout the aftermath of your accident.

What if a Worker Was Partially to Blame for Their Harm?

Workers’ compensation is not a fault-based system. Therefore, workers who are eligible to collect workers’ compensation benefits remain entitled to a financial award regardless of whether they were partially responsible, totally responsible, or blameless for their situation. The notable exceptions to this rule apply when eligible workers are high, drunk, injured while starting a fight, or trying to defraud the system. Therefore, don’t hesitate to explore your legal options simply because you may have been to blame for what happened to you.

Can Workers Talk to Their Loved Ones About Their Legal Situation?

Workers can certainly inform their loved ones about what has happened to them. However, The Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt does not advise that they do so on social media. Nowadays, it is highly likely that every injury victim’s social media accounts will be scrutinized by insurance claims adjusters and other interested parties. Anything that you say or post – however mundane – could be used as an excuse to limit your access to rightful compensation. If you have questions about how your social media activity could be used against your case, connect with our Palm Beach construction accident lawyer team to learn more.
