Construction Accident

Central Florida is growing at an astounding rate. Throughout the metro area, new construction is constantly happening. From the redesign of Interstate 4, to the scores of new homes being built in Lake Nona and Winter Garden, it seems there is more construction going on than ever. While this new construction is good for the local economy, it does come with a risk.

Construction related injuries are all too frequent.

Construction accidents can occur for a number of reasons, and the state of Florida requires employers to follow certain rules to limit workplace accidents.  When there is negligence with applying those rules to the construction worksite, product defects, or failure to adhere to safety policies and procedures, avoidable construction accidents can result.  If you have been injured on a construction site, it is imperative that you contact an attorney to help you with your claim.
