Building Collapse

One of the most rare 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. When a building collapses due to a lack of structural integrity, many workers can face serious injury or even death.

Car/Auto Accident

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. Car accidents that occurred while performing a job-related task such as making a delivery, driving between worksites, or running a work errand can all fall under workers’ compensation.

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.

Falling Objects

Workers’ compensation can seem like a straightforward system: if you are injured in a workplace accident or suffer a work-related illness, you qualify for benefits. Of course, there are many areas of the system that can become complicated. With the rising popularity of remote work — and a massive national workforce that suddenly began working from home during the pandemic and lockdown orders — an important question is raised.

Fires And Explosions

Any type of workplace accident can lead to catastrophic or serious injury, but fires and explosions are among the most devastating.

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. Out of every 1,000 welders in the U.S., four will die in a welding accident.
