Eric Mausner Construction Accident Law Firm in Miami, Florida
Construction site injuries are very common, and every year thousands of Americans are injured or killed on construction sites. One’s ability to recover for personal injuries due to a construction site may depend on whether he or she was a bystander or a construction worker.
If you were injured as a bystander due to a negligent construction site, you may have a negligence claim against the company responsible for the construction site. These claims are similar to premises liability cases such as slip/trip and falls.
If you were injured as a construction worker, you may be eligible for a workers’ compensation claim. You may also have a personal injury claim if you were injured due to another’s negligence. Contact us for a free evaluation.

Commencing a Lawsuit after a Construction Accident in Florida
If you are an employee and were injured, you would be expected to file a workers’ compensation claim. You may be entitled to file a personal injury claim if the workers’ comp. claimed fails or the amount is unsatisfactory.
Anyone who is not an employee is eligible to commence a lawsuit if you were a pedestrian, passer-by or legitimate visitor and suffered an injury due to negligence of any kind on the construction site.
If you were not an employee and were injured for some reason, you must be able to prove that you had no prior warning and were legally able to be in the place where you were injured.
