Some of the Many Types of Florida Workplace Accidents Our Firm Handles Workplace Falls

Workplace falls are one of the most common types of accidents in Florida. These accidents can occur in various settings, from construction sites to office environments. For instance, a construction worker in Miami might fall from scaffolding due to inadequate safety measures. Such falls can lead to severe injuries like broken bones, head trauma, or even paralysis. In all work environments, one can easily slip or trip and fall potentially resulting in a number of different injuries.

Contact with Objects or Equipment

Accidents involving contact with objects or equipment are frequent in industries like manufacturing and warehousing. For example, a worker at a Tampa-based warehouse might be struck by a falling object due to improper stacking of goods. These incidents can result in severe injuries, including fractures, lacerations, fractures and even amputations.

Exposure to Harmful Substances

Exposure to harmful substances is a significant risk, especially in chemical plants and laboratories. For example, a laboratory technician in Miami might suffer from chemical burns or respiratory issues due to a spill or improper handling of hazardous materials. Such exposure can have long-term health impacts.

Burn Injuries

Burn injuries are common in workplaces that involve high temperatures, chemicals, or electrical hazards. A restaurant worker in Jacksonville might suffer severe burns from a kitchen fire. These injuries can be excruciating and require extensive medical treatment, including surgeries and rehabilitation.

Work-Related Car Accidents

Work-related car accidents are prevalent among delivery drivers and sales representatives. For instance, a delivery driver in St. Petersburg might be involved in a collision while on the job. These accidents can result in significant injuries, such as whiplash, broken bones, and head injuries. An experienced attorney can assist you in securing compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and other related expenses.

OSHA Violations

OSHA violations are a serious concern in many Florida workplaces. These violations include inadequate safety equipment, poor training, and unsafe working conditions. For example, a construction site in Fort Lauderdale might fail to provide proper fall protection for its workers, leading to an accident. If you believe your injury resulted from an OSHA violation, it's important to consult with an attorney who can help hold your employer accountable and secure the monetary compensation you need for your past and future needs.

Lack of Fall Protection

Fall protection is critical in industries like construction and roofing. A roofer based out of Broward County might suffer a fall due to faulty safety harnesses or lack of guardrails. Ensuring fall protection is in place is not just about compliance but about protecting workers' lives. If you've been injured due to inadequate fall protection , an attorney can help you pursue a claim against your employer for failing to provide a safe working environment.

Client Reviews
Carolyn Frank and her firm represented me on a workers compensation injury case, under the defense base act. She did a excellent job from the moment I contacted her until 3 years later the case was settled. Every benefit I was entitled too, Carolyn fought hard to secure. E-mails and phone calls were always returned promptly. Definitely 5 star rating. Daniel
I can't express how grateful I am for Elizabeth Estrada, attorney, and Elizabeth Cantin, secretary, for all the hard work in order to defend me in my time of need. My lawyer and secretary spent time explaining each step and what was to be expected. Because of this I felt a part of the whole process and understood what was going on. Thank you so much for all your hard work!
