Construction accidents affect more than just the injured worker

The construction industry in Miami is booming. That means good news for construction workers who are able to find jobs to support their family members. That positive aspect comes with some very specific dangers, especially if the construction company or other employees don’t follow proper safety protocol. As we have discussed in some of our recent posts, construction accidents can lead to very serious injuries.

We understand that construction workers don’t go to work expecting that they will be injured and unable to work. Sadly, that is the reality for some construction workers who suffer from injuries caused by scaffolding accidents, falls, falling objects or accidents involving heavy machinery.

The effects of a construction worker’s injuries can go far beyond the physical pain of the injury. The worker’s entire family might suffer because of the injury. If the construction worker was the primary income earner, the loss of income can be devastating. If the construction worker suffered a brain injury, spinal cord injury or another serious injury, the family might have to learn how to cope with the necessary changes that come with those types of injuries.

We know that having to take legal action or file workers’ compensation claims might be something that is difficult because of your injuries. We can help you to explore the options that you have for seeking compensation that can help to replace your income and pay your medical bills.
