Protecting Workers' Rights After Scaffold Injuries
Scaffolds are a dangerous fact of life in the construction industry. About 65 percent of construction workers must use scaffolds as part of their job, and about 4,500 people are injured on them every year. At Panter, Panter & Sampedro, P.A., our Miami scaffolding accident attorneys have more than 30 years of experience helping injured construction workers throughout Florida obtain the compensation they deserve after serious scaffold accidents.
If you have suffered a serious injury, we can help you. Our firm has obtained verdicts and settlements in excess of $20 million for our clients. These results place us among the state and national leaders in personal injury litigation. Contact us online or call now at 305-662-6178 for a free consultation with our experienced Miami scaffold accident lawyers.
SEEKING MAXIMUM COMPENSATION FROM ALL AVENUES
While injured workers are often only eligible to obtain workers’ compensation benefits for medical expenses and lost wages, in other cases they are able to hold negligent parties responsible for their injuries. Our lawyers will aggressively seek maximum compensation from ALL responsible parties.
Depending on your specific case, you may be able to recover compensation from:
- General contractors or subcontractors
- The scaffold company
We use our deep knowledge of Florida personal injury law, opinions from medical and other experts and the latest technology to demonstrate how and why an accident occurred. Among other resources, we have an on-staff critical care nurse who can direct our clients to the best medical care for their needs and help us evaluate their injuries.
Our meticulous preparation helps us create compelling explanations that show how our clients were injured and who should be held responsible. Sometimes, our efforts help us negotiate a fair settlement rather than let a jury decide. If opposing parties will not settle, we have board-certified civil trial attorneys who will vigorously advocate for our clients in court.
