Fort Lauderdale Work Injury Lawyers

Have you been injured while working in Ft. Lauderdale?

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 4,547 workers lost their lives due to workplace accidents and injuries in 2010. These injuries included exposure to harmful substances or exposure, falls, fires and explosions, highway and transportation incidents, being struck by objects, through the use of objects or equipment, and from assaults and violent acts. The industry with the highest rate of fatal workplace injuries was the construction industry, followed by transportation and warehousing. Construction and industrial injuries include accidents involving ladders, scaffolds, roofs, trenches, cranes, forklifts, and other heavy machinery or vehicles. Anyone, however, can be injured while on the job, including office workers and retail clerks.

Effect of Work Environment on Employees

Those who are injured on the job or contract occupational diseases as result of work environments are entitled to receive medical benefits and wage loss payments through the Florida workers' compensation program. Workers of all kinds can sustain injuries and develop illnesses as a result of work duties, whether they work in offices, industrial sites, factories or manufacturing facilities, construction sites, as delivery personnel, or in any other industry or occupation.
The oil industry and construction industry are two of those most commonly associated with workplace injuries while mining and jobs involving chemical exposure, diesel exhaust, and other toxic substances may result in serious diseases. In some cases, lack of safety standards or measures and negligence on the part of third parties, such as vehicle, machine, tool, and equipment manufacturers may contribute to a workplace injury, giving cause to a third-party injury claim beyond workers' compensation.
