Panama City Construction Accident Lawyer

Construction Accidents in Panama City, FL

Construction sites are among the most dangerous workplaces in the United States. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires that employers take certain measures to protect workers from suffering injuries. Unfortunately, some employers do not follow these guidelines, and workers are hurt as a result. Many construction workers are also injured due to the negligence of third parties, such as contractors and subcontractors.

At Perry & Young, P.A., we help people who have been injured in construction accidents. Our Panama City construction accident lawyers have helped thousands of people recover compensation for their damages since 2008. We understand the complexities of construction accident cases and can help you navigate the process from start to finish.

Common Causes of Construction Accidents

There are many ways that construction workers can be injured on the job. Some of the most common causes of construction accidents include:

  • Falls from heights
  • Being struck by falling objects
  • Electrocution
  • Being caught in between objects
  • Slips and falls
  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Overexertion
  • Equipment or machinery accidents
  • Exposure to hazardous materials

Common Construction Accident Injuries

Due to the heavy machinery, tools, and equipment that are used on construction sites, workers are at risk of suffering severe, life-changing injuries. In some cases, construction accidents are fatal. Even when workers survive, they may be left with serious injuries that require extensive medical treatment and time off work.

Some of the most common injuries in construction accidents include:

  • Broken bones
  • Amputations
  • Crushing injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Burns
  • Electrocution injuries
  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Overexertion injuries
  • Internal organ injuries
  • Exposure to hazardous materials
  • Respiratory conditions
  • Repetitive motion injuries

Recovering Compensation for Construction Accident Damages

After a construction accident, it is important to seek medical attention right away. Not only is this the best way to protect your health, but it also ensures that you have the documentation needed to recover compensation for your injuries. If you wait to see a doctor, the insurance company may argue that your injuries were not caused by the accident.

Most employers in Florida are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. This insurance provides benefits to workers who are injured on the job. If you are injured in a construction accident, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits will cover your medical expenses and a portion of your lost wages.

If your injury is serious and you are unable to work for an extended period of time, you may be eligible for additional benefits. A lawyer can review your case and help you determine what types of compensation you are entitled to receive.

Workers’ compensation benefits only cover a portion of your lost wages. If your injury is serious and you cannot work, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits. Our attorneys can help you file a claim and fight for the benefits you need and deserve.

Depending on the facts of your case, you may also be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit. If your construction accident was caused by a third party, such as a contractor or subcontractor, you may be able to recover compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit. This type of lawsuit allows you to recover compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering, and more.
