Fort Myers Construction Accident Attorney

Injured on a construction site? Get the legal counsel you need to seek justice.

Construction workers on site working in the evening

Construction workers are at risk every day. This is one of the most perilous occupations, due to the many types of accidents that could take place, even when safety regulations are carefully followed. There is great risk of injury or death from the following:

  • Ladder falls
  • Falling objects
  • Trench collapses
  • Scaffolding collapses
  • Electrical accidents
  • Equipment failures

The injuries can be catastrophic, and require a lifetime of medical care, including traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, or severe burns.

Need a lawyer for a construction accident case in Fort Myers? At Pittman Law Firm, P.L., our legal team can help the injured or the family to pursue the financial compensation that is deserved – through every possible source. As an employee, you have the right to get workers' compensation benefits. In most cases, through this statewide system, you get benefits but have lost the ability to sue your employer. Some employers may not carry insurance, allowing you the right to sue, but these employers frequently have few assets, and it may not be productive to do so.

Our personal injury lawyers will fight for the full settlement you deserve and we offer a free initial consultation!

Third Party Liability and Compensation

The other issue that comes into play in a serious injury is related to third party liability. If another company, whether a separate contracting firm, utilities company, equipment manufacturer or leasing company or other entity could be held liable for some of the damages, it may be possible to pursue compensation beyond the benefits from workers' compensation. The first step is a free case evaluation, allowing our professional legal team to review the situation and determine the best way to move forward legally.

Looking for an attorney for your construction accident in Fort Myers, FL?

We advocate for the rights of injured construction workers, and our goal is to recover the maximum possible from all sources that could be accessed for the injured person. As the family is likely suffering extreme financial hardship after such an accident, the need for income adds to an already difficult and emotional situation, particularly in cases of very serious injuries. Connect with us so we can advise you before you sign any papers or agree to a settlement.

Workers' compensation insurance companies may not inform you about all of the benefits you could access. These are commercial insurance firms that often deny valid claims, or pay out less than the injured victim deserves. Don't get hit twice. You have rights and our firm is here to make sure you are protected, and that every form of compensation is recovered.

Contact us for a free case evaluation. You deserve to have a trusted Fort Myers personal injury attorney on your side.
