Miami Workplace Accident Attorneys
Representing Injured Workers in Third-Party and Negligence Claims throughout Florida
Workplace safety issues can cause devastating injuries and deaths. If you or a loved one has been injured on the job, you’re not alone. An estimated 2.8 million American workers were injured in 2014, according to U.S. Department of Labor statistics. Additionally, more than half of these injuries were serious enough that they led to days away from work, transfers or work restrictions. The same year, 4,679 people died from fatal workplace injuries.
While many companies may be required to offer workers’ compensation insurance for on-the-job injuries, some are not – and in some cases, you may have been the victim of negligence or wrongdoing in the workplace. If you believe that negligence – or the wrongful actions of a third party – caused you to suffer catastrophic injuries in the line of duty, we invite you to call our Miami workplace accident lawyers at Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen today.

When Am I Eligible for Damages?
Because workers’ compensation is a no-fault benefits system, those who file claims and go through that process will not be eligible to seek compensation through a civil lawsuit, as they waive the right to civil action in most cases. This is why it’s important to review your workplace accident case with a seasoned attorney before taking action: Otherwise, you may not be able to recover full damages in cases involving negligence.
Some examples of how negligence and wrongful action can cause serious injuries while you are on the clock:
- Motor vehicle accidents with negligent third parties
- Violent assaults and physical fights
- Falls, slips, and trips due to hazardous work site conditions
- Toxic chemical exposure (asbestos, lead, etc.)
- Fires and explosions, resulting in serious burn injuries
- Defective product and machinery-related injuries
- Catastrophic construction accidents
- Collapse of structures under construction
