Were you recently injured on a construction site?

Depending on the facts of your case, you may be able to pursue a personal injury lawsuit for a workplace accident. Or, in cases where a family has lost a loved one, surviving family members may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
Darrigo, Diaz & Jimenez, Attorneys at Law can closely examine the facts of your case to determine your options. You may have more than you think. Our Tampa personal injury attorneys often visit the scene of construction accidents to determine if the harm was actually caused by a defective product, vendor, or subcontractor. We may be able to hold these businesses and individuals accountable for the full level of compensation you deserve.

Common Construction Site Accidents & Injuries
Experience has taught us that construction sites are dangerous, and construction workers put themselves at risk on a daily basis. A risky job means that people must be exceptionally careful. They must follow safety guidelines, get appropriate training and pay attention to the work they are doing. Sadly, this does not always go as planned.
There are many ways that workers can be injured on construction sites:
- Construction vehicle accidents
- Being hit by falling objects
- Forklift and crane accidents
- Falling from significant heights
- Heavy machinery accidents
- Mistakes by untrained workers
Your Options After a Fatal Construction Accident
As the immediate family member of someone who was killed in a construction accident, you may eligible for workers’ compensation survivor benefits. If the accident was the result of a third party’s negligence, you may also be able to obtain additional compensation through a wrongful death claim. This includes the income that your loved one would have earned and non-economic damages such as loss of consortium and pain and suffering.
Darrigo, Diaz & Jimenez, Attorneys at Law regularly represents clients in fatal accident cases. When representing you, our Tampa personal injury lawyers will initiate a thorough investigation in order to determine how the accident happened and document the full extent of your losses. If the death occurred as a result of the negligence of a third party, you may be entitled to financial compensation for grief, mental anguish, and relationship losses.
