Accident Causes

One of the rarest and catastrophic types of accidents that can occur at a construction site is a building collapse. Unfortunately, it’s never possible to eliminate all risks in construction, especially during building demolition, building erection, or restoration of a badly damaged building.
Electrocution accidents are among the most serious work-related incidents. Workers who suffer electrocution on the job may face many long-term injuries.
Not all work-related accidents happen on a job site. If you drive during the course of your employment and you are injured in an auto accident, you may still be covered by the workers’ compensation system in Florida.
One of the most dangerous elements on any construction site is heavy equipment. Any type of machinery or equipment can be dangerous when it is defective or used negligently, but some types of equipment are responsible for most serious accidents.
The construction of a multi-story building or a building with a unique design almost always requires a crane. While cranes have revolutionized construction, they can also lead to deadly accidents when used incorrectly. In a 6-year span, crane accidents were responsible for 297 deaths and Florida had the second-highest number of fatal crane accidents.
Industrial and manufacturing workers face some of the most dangerous workplaces in Florida. The nature of these jobs exposes workers to a range of hazards including harmful chemicals, heavy machinery, flammable materials, intense heat, and more.
Demolition always comes with risks, no matter how carefully risks are assessed and mitigated. Demolition not only involves dangerous explosives, but also introduces the risk of falling debris, scaffolding collapse, and other serious hazards.
Many workers, especially those in construction, manufacturing, industrial, and skilled trade industries, use specialized machinery on a daily basis. While heavy machinery can make difficult work easier and more efficient, machinery poses a high risk of injury.
Utility line work is one of America’s top 10 most dangerous occupations. Every year, 30-50 out of every 100,000 utility line workers are killed in workplace accidents.
While falls can happen at any workplace, construction workers are most at risk of scaffolding / ladder accidents. Construction workers have the highest-risk job in Florida and most construction site accidents involve a fall, usually from a ladder or scaffolding.
Welders face an incredibly dangerous environment every day. Every year, half a million workers are hurt in welding accidents. Welding accidents can result in serious respiratory problems, severe burns, eye injuries or blindness, and even death.
Any type of workplace accident can lead to catastrophic or serious injury, but fires and explosions are among the most devastating. Victims of an explosion or fire face life-changing financial, psychological, and physical effects.
Forklifts are a common sight at warehouses, construction sites, factories, and other commercial and industrial settings. They are also one of the leading causes of work-related accidents.



Si usted ha sufrido lesiones en un accidente de trabajo, la ley permite prestar asistencia médica y el pago del tiempo perdido en el trabajo. El sistema de compensación en el estado de Florida es un sistema estricto de responsabilidad, lo que significa que los trabajadores lesionados pueden tener derecho a los beneficios independientemente de quién sea el culpable del accidente en el trabajo.
