Construction Accident Lawyer in Tallahassee
When a construction accident happens, the damages incurred are usually more than just physical, mental, or emotional. These accidents can sink you into a deep financial crisis. A trip to the hospital is all it takes to get you there.
Healthcare in Tallahassee and all over America is not cheap. And given that construction accidents often lead to serious injuries, some requiring extensive treatment, these medical bills can pile up within a few trips to the doctor.
Medical bills aside, you’ll be staring at lost wages and earning potential, diminished quality of life, and inexplainable pain and suffering, among other damages. All these damages are worth something if you have a valid case.

Morgan & Morgan
Can I File a Workers’ Comp Claim After a Construction Accident?
Yes, you can, but only if you were an employee at the construction company and the accident happened while you were on shift. Workers' comp provides benefits such as medical expenses and a portion of lost wages, regardless of fault. This is typically the first avenue for seeking compensation for on-the-job injuries.
Can I File a Lawsuit After a Construction Accident?
A lawsuit might be on the cards if a third party's negligence contributed to the incident. Unlike workers' compensation, a lawsuit allows you to seek additional damages, including pain and suffering and the loss of enjoyment of life.
Can I File a Lawsuit and a Workers’ Compensation Claim After a Construction Accident?
Yes, it’s possible to pursue both a workers' compensation claim and a lawsuit. This is known as a "third-party lawsuit" and involves seeking compensation from a party other than your employer, such as a negligent contractor or equipment manufacturer.
What Damages Can I Recover if I File a Workers’ Comp Claim?
Workers' compensation is a no-fault insurance that typically covers medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, and a percentage of lost wages. It doesn't, however, include damages for pain and suffering or punitive damages. If you suffered those damages, a skilled attorney can help determine other ways to pursue additional compensation.
What Damages Can I Recover if I File a Lawsuit?
Away from the workers’ comp claim, a lawsuit allows you to seek a broader range of damages. These include but are not limited to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, diminished quality of life and potentially punitive damages if the responsible party's actions were particularly negligent.
How Can a Lawyer Help Me in Such a Case?
A Tallahassee construction accident attorney from Morgan and Morgan can help evaluate the specifics of your case. If valid, they’ll guide you on whether to pursue a workers' comp claim, a lawsuit, or both.
