Miami Construction Accident Lawyers
Aggressive Advocacy for Injured Construction Workers
Construction sites are dangerous places where sometimes devastating and life-altering accidents happen. Consequently, there are many different laws and regulations to help protect construction workers that work at those sites. As such, construction site accidents are often preventable because they are often the result of failure to follow safety regulations, general negligence, or defective equipment or tools.
Injured construction workers need the assistance of a lawyer with experience handling these very technical cases. If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of a construction site accident, contact Greenberg, Stone & Urbano as soon as possible. An experienced Miami construction accident lawyer at our firm can help you get the help you need to get back on your feet.

Common Construction Accident Injuries
Whether the accident involved overhead electrical wiring, heavy equipment, or the weather, these accidents often have devastating consequences. Construction accidents involving equipment failure or electricity often cause serious burns, severe injuries, and even fatalities. Similarly, a worker that falls from scaffolding can suffer traumatic brain injuries and/or severe spinal cord injuries or even death.
These injuries result in many hours of lost wages, pain and suffering, and expensive specialized medical treatment, followed by long and painful periods of rehabilitation.
Third-Party Work Injury Claims
An important thing that most injured workers do not realize is that their rights are not limited to filling a workers' compensation claim against their own employers. They can also pursue liability claims against third parties. In fact, these third party liability cases often allow injured workers to get the maximum amount of benefits that will allow them to receive the best quality medical care and rehabilitation treatment possible.
Construction accident injuries often cause trauma and physical pain that linger for months and, in some cases, years of treatment. A qualified lawyer from Greenberg, Stone & Urbano can help make sure that the insurance company continues to provide necessary assistance until you have fully recovered.
