Falls & Collapses

Growth in construction projects throughout the Florida Panhandle has also led to accelerating growth of construction injuries. Some of the most common causes of injuries include falls and structure collapses.

If you or a loved one has been injured on a construction site, you may have options through one of the following types of claims:

  • Workers’ compensation claim (through employer’s workers’ compensation insurance)
  • Premises liability claim (against property owner)
  • Third-party liability claim

A third-party claim can be made against a manufacturer, retailer, renter, marketer or any other party in the equipment or material distribution chain. Our attorneys are extensively experienced investigating the causes of accidents and holding negligent parties accountable for defective manufacture, design and construction.

Representing Injured Construction Workers And Bystanders

When a structure collapses or debris falls from a building, both construction workers and bystanders (e.g., delivery people, inspectors, property owners and passersby) may sustain serious injuries. A construction defect has the potential to harm multiple people. Additionally, when construction sites are not properly secured or marked, a person walking through a job site could be injured by a fall, exposed nails or any number of other dangerous conditions.

We represent people who have been injured from ladder falls, scaffolding falls, falls into holes, falls from rooftops and falls from other heights.
