There are a number of Florida state and federal laws concerning personal injuries and construction sites, which may or may not be applicable in a given situation. Additionally, there are a number of parties who may be liable for the injury, including construction site owners, general contractors, sub-contractors, manufacturers of faulty equipment, or another third party. Only a thorough investigation of medical records, the construction site, witness statements, and parties related to the incident can help to determine liability, as well as the laws applicable to your claim. A construction accident attorney can start an investigation, identify any liable parties, and determine the type of claim you should pursue.
Construction accidents can occur for a number of reasons. OSHA and the State of Florida require employers to obtain certain permits, conduct regular inspections, and implement job safety programs to limit workplace accidents.

- Insufficient training;
