Work Accident Lawyers Serving Jacksonville, FL

Florida Work Accident Attorneys

Florida ranks among the states with the highest number of workplace accidents. According to the Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were 225 fatal work injuries in Florida in 2010, trailing only California and Texas. Work-related injuries and fatalities can be caused by motor vehicle accidents, falls, exposure to harmful substances, fires and explosions, and defective machinery.

If you have suffered a serious workplace injury, you may be unable to work for an extended period and need more financial assistance than workers’ compensation provides. Workers’ compensation does not fairly compensate a worker for an injury on the job.

 

It only pays a portion of last wages and nothing for pain and suffering, and loss of capacity to enjoy life. The seriously injured worker can only receive full and fair compensation through a civil lawsuit against companies other than his employer which share fault for the accident. Let a work accident lawyer from Pajcic & Pajcic review the facts of your accident and explain your legal options free of charge.

Experience in Handling Workplace Accident Lawsuits

At Pajcic & Pajcic we understand that workers’ compensation pays only part of the expenses after a workplace accident. Many injured workers have legal rights to recover damages from careless property owners and manufacturers who contributed to their accident.

We have the experience to help. The types of work accidents our lawyers handle include:

  • Construction Injuries — Construction workers engage in many activities that put them at risk of serious work accidents, including being struck by cranes and heavy equipment, falls from heights, motor vehicle accidents and traumatic injuries from unguarded tools and machinery. A seriously injured construction worker will never receive adequate workers compensation alone.  Fortunately, in many construction accidents, Pajcic & Pajcic can identify a defective product or negligent company that is not the employer. Construction accident cases require a thorough understanding of all the exceptions to workers compensation immunity and the perseverance to identify all the companies at fault. Pajcic & Pajcic has won settlements and verdicts for numerous construction workers including an $8 million verdict for a Jacksonville man helping to build a new hospital, $1 million for a Yulee laborer because of a defective scaffold and $2.5 million for a Palatka utility company employee against a company doing construction work at his plant.
  • Third-Party Negligence — If a Florida workplace injury is caused by a negligent third party (an individual or company other than your employer), a work accident lawyer at Pajcic & Pajcic can help you file a third-party lawsuit to recover compensation for pain and suffering, disfigurement and lost wages. After many work accidents, you may file a third-party lawsuit to recover compensation in addition to receiving workers’ compensation.
  • On-the-Job Injuries — Every year, thousands of workers in Florida are injured on the job. Certain jobs remain particularly dangerous and have high rates of serious injuries and wrongful deaths, including jobs working around heavy equipment and industrial machinery.  According to federal statistics, the construction industry has a high rate of accidents requiring workers to be out of work a month or longer, showing the seriousness of the injuries. Serious injuries include traumatic head injuries, neck injuries, severe burns and amputation. Florida ranks as one of the top three states for the number of motor vehicle crash fatalities in work zones, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The negligent third party can be a motor vehicle, such as the garbage truck that paid $1.5 million when it backed into a surveyor represented by Pajcic & Pajcic or the bus that paid over $1 million after it hit a manlift and killed a client of ours.
  • Product or Premises Liability — Employers have a legal responsibility to maintain reasonably safe worksites free of known hazards. Sometimes, a property owner, a general contractor or a subcontractor will disregard worker safety and allow dangerous conditions at a work site that lead to a serious accident or wrongful death. If dangerous equipment was the cause of a serious injury, an injured worker may file a product liability claim to seek compensation.

Results in Workplace Accident Lawsuits

The Florida work accident lawyers of Pajcic & Pajcic take pride in the results we obtain for injured workers who genuinely need help to support their families and resume productive lives.

Our Jacksonville Car Accident Attorney obtained $5 million for a construction superintendent who fell through a snow-covered skylight, suffering a catastrophic head injury and multiple fractured bones; $2.2 million for the wife and children of a warehouseman who was crushed to death in a loading dock accident; and $2.6 million for a maritime worker who suffered permanent injuries in a 40-foot fall from a tugboat mast when his outdated safety belt ripped.

The results of these work accident claims and third party lawsuits do not guarantee the outcome of your workplace injury lawsuit. But they show our experience in representing victims of work accidents and their families.
