Tampa, Florida Construction Accident Attorneys
Board-Certified Advocacy for Construction Site Injury Victims in Pensacola, Fort Walton Beach, & Crestview
If you’re a construction worker, you know how many things can go wrong on a construction site. From falling hazards to the risk for electrical injury, there are countless ways that a workday can turn tragic. Other individuals may also suffer construction site injuries, such as those driving or passing by. The good news is that anyone injured on a construction site due to no fault of their own may be entitled to compensation.
At Michles & Booth, we fight to maximize compensation for construction site accident victims. With offices in Pensacola, Crestview, Fort Walton Beach, and Tampa, our attorney team is equipped to take on cases across the state. We can help clients through both workers’ compensation claims and third-party claims. There is no case too big or small for our firm—entrust your case to our caring legal team!

Paths to Compensation: Workers’ Comp & Third-Party Claims
After a construction site accident, there are two ways to recover compensation:
- The first is a workers’ comp claim, which only those injured on the job may file.
- The second is a third-party claim, which can only be pursued in civil court if a negligent third party was at fault.
Please note that construction workers, like most employees, cannot sue their employer for an on-the-job injury. They can only file a civil claim if:
(a) they are filing it against a third party, meaning someone other than their employer or
(b) in special circumstances in which their employer intentionally caused them harm.
Parties that are often named as third parties in construction site injury claims include:
- General contractors
- Motor vehicle drivers
- Property managers and owners
- Product manufacturers, especially of safety equipment
Consult one of our experienced lawyers to get a better idea of which claim you may be eligible to file.
Compensation Available in Construction Accident Claims
Depending on the type of claim you file, you may be entitled to compensation for economic (financial) damages or noneconomic (emotional/mental) damages—or both. How much compensation you can recover will also depend on whether you suffered a minor or severe injury, or if you are taking action after the wrongful death of a loved one.
At Michles & Booth, we have recovered our injured clients compensation for compensatory damages such as the following:
- Medical expenses
- Lost earnings and benefits
- Disfigurement and scarring
- Pain and suffering
Workers’ comp will only provide compensation for economic damages, not noneconomic damages like pain and suffering. However, a third-party claim may result in compensation for the above damages and/or more.
