Law Firm with Successful Construction Accident Track Record

Construction Accidents

You Need a Compassionate Lawyer

Construction sites dot the South Florida landscape. Though some residents may consider them temporary eyesores, these worksites represent a vital part of our local economy. New building projects create tens of thousands of construction jobs for Floridians every year. They feed and clothe workers' families and offer a financial opportunity to anyone with a strong back and a will to work hard.

Unfortunately, construction sites are dangerous places. When construction accidents occur, they often leave workers catastrophically injured. Some workers even die from the injuries they sustain in construction accidents, leaving behind grieving families who may struggle to regain their financial footing without the income their loved one's construction job provided. If you have suffered an injury or tragic loss in connection with a South Florida construction site accident, call us at (800) 787-6445 or send us an email to schedule an appointment.

Able to Tackle Any Kind of Construction Site Injury

When construction site accidents do not cause a tragic loss of life, they often leave victims badly injured. It would not be uncommon for clients to seek Attorney George's help after they or their loved one have suffered any of the following injuries on a construction job:

  • Traumatic brain injuries that leave victims in a coma or with serious deficits.
  • Crushed and traumatically amputated limbs.
  • Spinal cord injuries resulting in paralysis.
  • Soft tissue, neck, and back injuries that lead to long-term disabilities.
  • Severe lacerations that cause permanent disfigurement.
  • Painful, life-threatening second and third-degree burns caused by electric shocks, chemical spills, and welding mishaps.

These are just a few of the kinds of life-altering injuries that can happen on a construction site, and for which the experienced, caring team at the Law Office of Michael C. George can help victims seek compensation.

Ready to Stand Up to the Biggest Insurance and Construction Companies

Frequently, Attorney George's clients feel powerless to recover damages from the large, powerful corporations and insurance companies who have legal liability for their injuries.

Attorney George is never afraid to take on the biggest insurance companies and construction-industry employers in seeking justice for his clients. He has faced-off against some of the nation's largest insurance companies before, and he'll do it again.

Skilled at Investigating and Litigating the Most Complex Cases

Construction Site After an Accident

Construction accidents often result from a complicated set of facts and circumstances. On any given job site, there may be numerous contractors and subcontractors working together, but on separate tasks. Each contractor and sub has its own team of employees to whom it owes duties of care and legal obligations to keep them safe, well-equipped, and adequately paid.

When an accident happens, those contractors and subs often point the finger at each other trying to lay blame at someone else's feet, creating a knot of disputes so complex you'd need a steel saw to cut through it.

Think of Attorney Michael C. George, his team, and the expert witnesses he regularly works with on personal injury cases as the law-firm equivalent of a steel saw. They have the experience, know-how, and street smarts, to cut through loud arguments about who-is-blaming-who to find the root cause of a construction accident and the party or parties who should bear legal responsibility for paying for his clients' injuries and losses. In a construction accident matter, those parties may well include:

  • The injured worker's employer who failed to implement job site safety measures.
  • The general contractor who pushed subs to ignore safety and work-hour regulations.
  • The construction project owner, architect, and engineer, for designing and trying to build a defective structure.
  • Manufacturers of all manner of construction and building equipment, from loaders to acetylene torches.

Rest assured that when Michael C. George, P.A. and his team represent a victim of a complicated construction accident, they have the resources and resolve to investigate it, identify the parties responsible, negotiate with the biggest, most well-funded opponents, and – if necessary – argue the case to a judge and jury.
