Construction site accidents happen far too often, simply because of the nature of the job. With so much machinery and other complicated facets, it is easy for a worker to get hurt if someone acts in a negligent manner. Some of the many types of construction accidents that take place in Florida include the following:
Fires and explosions
Many of our clients who have been injured in construction site accidents are employees working in these environments. If this has happened to you, you are most likely looking for help navigating the workers’ compensation claim process. As you know, most employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance in order to provide medical care and wage reimbursement for their employees with the caveat that they will not sue them to receive these benefits.
If you have been injured at work and your employer has not held up their end of the deal, the legal team at Cressman Law Firm, P.A. can help you move forward. The most common problems we see in relation to workers’ compensation cases include:
An employer’s refusal to acknowledge the injury and submit a claim to their insurance
An employer’s insurance company denies a legitimate claim
An employer pressures an injured employee to return to work before they are healed
An employer and employee disagree on the amount or type of benefits received
Cressman Law Firm, P.A. works with construction site accident victims to:
File a workers’ compensation claim;
Provide evidence and documentation to support a claim that is called into question;
Appeal a denied claim;
Take further legal action when an employer and employee cannot resolve a workers’ compensation dispute through the previous methods.
When it comes to these kinds of accidents and the workers’ compensation system, you want to be sure the attorney you’ve retained has extensive experience in this area of the law. Employers and their insurance providers hold a great deal of power over how benefits will be dispensed and they are not always enthusiastic to cooperate with the employee. Attorney Mark Cressman has 25 years of experience with these matters and knows how to work productively to resolve legal disputes. Contact Cressman Law Firm, P.A. today to learn how we can help.
