Florida Construction Lawyer Services

The state of Florida is growing everyday, and as a result, the increasing need for new roadways/highways is at an all time high.  One would be hard-pressed to find a county in Florida that is not seeking to renovate or restructure a roadway.  Many people drive through a construction zone everyday — even when they do not know it.  As such, the Florida Department of Transportation, along with the U.S. Department of Transportation, sets forth standards for construction companies and cities to follow when performing roadway construction.  These standards are in place to keep construction workers and the traveling public safe from the hazards of a construction zone.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”) is responsible for the health and safety of over 130 million workers. OSHA employs officers for the sole purpose of ensuring that construction sites are operating in accordance with safety standards.  Additionally, OSHA identifies construction’s “Fatal Four” as being the leading cause of construction worker death: (1) slip and falls (usually from a high distance); (2) electrocutions; (3) struck by a dangerous object; and (4) caught-in/between a dangerous instrumentality.  OSHA attempts to enforce safety standards to prevent the Fatal Four, as well as other injuries, from occurring.

Sadly, construction sites continuously fail to meet these safety standards, as well as the Department of Transportation’s standards.    Everyday construction site injuries affect construction workers, as well as the general public.  If you or a loved one suffered personal injury resulting from a construction site accident, you may be entitled to compensation.
