What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Jacksonville Construction Accident Lawyer

The Occupational Health and Safety Act (OSHA) was passed in 1970. It requires employers to provide a reasonably safe work environment for employees by taking steps such as correctly maintaining the property and giving all employees necessary safety equipment. Unfortunately, even with this legislation in place, construction remains a relatively dangerous job. Jacksonville construction accident attorney Donald Guthrie represents construction workers in cases involving:

  • Equipment malfunction
  • Employer negligence
  • Slip and fall
  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Lifting injuries
  • Exposure to toxic substances
  • Head and brain injuries
  • Amputations
  • Wrongful death

Usually, a person injured in a construction accident needs only to file for worker’s compensation. Our Jacksonville construction injury law offices can give you more information about your rights and help you with the often complicated paperwork involved.

If a third party was involved in a worker’s injury, however, he or she may have grounds for a lawsuit. For example, a worker injured by defective equipment can sue its manufacturers. Also, if a worker is injured by a third party visiting the workplace, or if a worker is injured while on the property of a third party, it may be in his or her best interest to consider filing a personal injury lawsuit.

Sadly, construction accidents are sometimes fatal. This has serious repercussions for the victims’ families, who are forced to address practical matters like the loss of the victims’ salary and the cost of a funeral even while grieving. If the victim’s death was foreseeable and preventable, the family may have grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit. The damages won from this kind of lawsuit can help to support a victim’s family while they try to get their lives back together.
