Construction accidents cause injuries involving multiple parties, including some that may not be obvious initially. Some construction accidents have limited liability or none at all. For instance, there may be more than one corporation, a silent partner, and a management company. Each may have its own insurance coverage. There can be responsibility on the part of the owners of the heavy equipment, general contractors, and so on. Many big construction companies hire savvy injury defense attorneys to protect their interests. When construction accidents occur the owners, architects, insurance companies, and equipment manufacturers can each be held responsible. They will be accountable for their own negligence to the extent any can be shown by a comprehensive investigation. It’s important to hire an experienced local construction accident attorney in Tampa to help you navigate through the injury claims process.

In should be noted that work related injury or illness is typically covered by your state’s worker’s compensation laws. The purpose of these laws is to eliminate employee lawsuits for fault and negligence. Workers’ compensation is “no fault”. This means the worker will not have to prove the employer’s negligence. The trade-off is that workers cannot sue their employers under most circumstances. Furthermore, many workers compensation programs severely limit the amount of money that can be awarded. It also limits the length of time compensation can be paid out.
