Construction Zone Accidents
Your Construction Zone Accident May Have a Time Limit for Seeking Compensation;
Consult Fort Lauderdale Personal Injury Lawyer Mark J. Leeds Promptly if You’re Considering a Lawsuit
Construction zones can present risks for drivers on Fort Lauderdale and Fort Myers area roadways. If an accident in a construction zone has caused you to sustain injuries, you may be entitled to remuneration from the responsible entity. Sometimes, responsibility for the negligent actions rests upon the General Contractor or GC. Other times, there may be dangerous construction sites due to subcontractors or suppliers. Each construction injury case is unique. It is important to know, however, that if the negligence of a government agency contributed to or caused the accident, although you may be eligible to receive compensation, there are very rigorous time limits in which you must notify the agency of your intention to pursue compensation. Therefore, it is critical that you promptly consult with a personal injury attorney. Fort Lauderdale accident attorney Mark J. Leeds has the experience and expertise with Fort Lauderdale construction zone accidents to assist you with all of the required paperwork, ensure that legal deadlines are met, and help you pursue any benefits that you may be due.
Who’s at Fault? Construction Zone Accidents Often Have Many Contributors
When you meet with Fort Lauderdale accident lawyer Mark J. Leeds for an initial consultation to discuss your construction zone accident, he will thoroughly evaluate the specifics of your case to determine whether or not it was due to negligence or recklessness on the part of the construction crew, those supervising the construction workers, or the civic entity that contracted the workers. If so, Mark will negotiate vigorously on your behalf with the insurance companies involved and aggressively pursue any compensation to which you may be entitled.
Mark also handles cases in which workers are injured in construction zones. Falls from scaffolds, ladders or heights may be subject to OSHA laws. There may be issues of improper, absent, or neglected safety equipment. More often than not, construction zone accidents and fatalities suffered by workers are both a workers’ compensation claim, and if applicable, a third party liability claim. Florida Statute 440.11 covers some, but not all, of the circumstances of employer immunity from other than workers compensation claims. Whatever the case, you can rest assured that Fort Myers accident lawyer Mark J. Leeds will leave no stone unturned when investigating all parties that may have been responsible for your accident and then working to bring them to account.
