Construction sites are full of safety hazards that endanger the very people who work on them.

What to Do After Getting Burned at Work

Construction workers and their families have two options to win justice after a severe burn injury. The first is a workers’ compensation insurance claim; the second, a third-party lawsuit. Which route is right for you will depend on the facts of your case, as well as what damages you are trying to recover.

File for Workers’ Compensation Benefits

You cannot sue your or your loved one’s employer, but you can file for workers’ compensation benefits to help your family stay afloat. The workers’ comp claims process can be complicated, particularly when employers and insurance agents do not want to pay what they owe. Our Fort Lauderdale construction accident lawyers can help you navigate this process. We will work to improve your chances of collecting benefits.

What Does Workers Compensation Cover?

Most construction workers are covered under their employer’s workers’ compensation insurance, which pays out benefits to injured employees even if they were at fault for the workplace accident.

If successful in your claim, you will be compensated for a portion of your lost wages and your medical expenses, among other economic damages. Please note that workers’ comp will not cover non-economic damages, like pain and suffering or emotional distress.

This may mean they failed to follow safety procedures, sold your employer a defective product, or failed to maintain heavy equipment properly.  In the more than 70 years since we opened our firm, our Fort Lauderdale construction accident attorneys have litigated countless cases involving third-party liability for construction burn accidents.
