There is no doubt that working on a site near or on a crane can be dangerous. If you suffer a serious injury due to a crane-related accident, the workers’ compensation system in Florida is designed to protect you with benefits for your lost wages, medical bills, and disability. The vast majority of construction workers and crane operators are covered by workers’ compensation.
The purpose of workers’ compensation is to give you benefits regardless of fault in exchange for losing your right to sue your employer for your accident. However, receiving the benefits you are entitled to is not always easy. Your employer and their workers’ compensation carrier may fight your claim in many ways, including arguing that your injuries are not as severe as you claim or that you have fully recovered when you have not.

At WorkInjuryRights.Com™, we will investigate your accident to show how it happened and gather evidence proving the severity of your injuries.

Crane accidents in Florida usually lead to severe and life-changing injuries and fatalities among workers. While you accepted a dangerous job, you did so with the expectation that the system would take care of you if you were hurt. At WorkInjuryRights.Com™, we believe that no injured worker should be left fighting for benefits after a life-changing accident.
