Workplace Accidents in Florida
Factory and construction workers know all too well that their jobs come with a long list of hazards. A job site is typically a dangerous environment due to the dangerous equipment and tools, large machinery, and the long, exhausting hours they are required to work. These various dangers are made worse by inadequate safety measures, defective equipment, or one of the hundreds of other factors that can cause workplace accidents with injuries that are equally devastating to workers and those who depend on them.
If someone has sustained injuries in a workplace accident in Florida, the law entitles the injured victim to file a personal injury suit in state court for financial compensation for monetary damages.
