Work Injuries in Fort Myers, Florida
Work injuries can occur in a wide variety of ways, and, often, your employer is not the only liable party. If any person, business, or entity played a role in your injury in any way, you can pursue compensation from them in a third-party work injury lawsuit. A private lawsuit offers many benefits over simply filing a work comp claim with your employer, and perhaps the biggest is that you are able to recover noneconomic damages such as pain and suffering. In Florida, there is no cap on how much you can collect.
The Landau Law Group will investigate your work injury and determine if one or more parties other than your employer played a role. If so, we will gather evidence and put together a compelling claim on your behalf, one that shows with clear precision how your injury occurred and how the other party was responsible. We will fight for the full and fair compensation you deserve. To start the process today by scheduling a free case evaluation, call (866) 703-4878.
Who Is Responsible for My Work Injury
Any number of parties could be liable for your work injury. Our investigation will identify them and produce evidence showing how they are liable. Some of the most common third parties that end up being liable for on-the-job injuries include:
The Job Site Owner
If you were injured on a job site owned by a person or entity other than your employer, the job site owner may bear liability for your injury. This is especially probable if your injury resulted from a slip and fall or from a hazardous condition on the worksite. We will investigate and produce evidence showing that the job site owner failed to uphold their duty under Florida’s premises liability laws to keep the area safe and free of dangerous conditions.
An Equipment Manufacturer
If you were injured while operating heavy machinery or other equipment at work, we may be able to hold the manufacturer liable, particularly if we can identify a flaw or defect in the equipment you were using. In such scenarios, we do not even have to show negligence on the part of the manufacturer to recover compensation.
A Contractor or Subcontractor
If you were performing a job under the auspices of a contractor or subcontractor for whom you were not a W-2 employee, we can go after them in a private lawsuit rather than filing a workers’ compensation claim. That means you may be eligible to receive a lucrative settlement for pain and suffering and other noneconomic damages.
Other Potentially Liable Parties
The above list is nowhere near exhaustive. Because work injuries come in so many varieties, there is a virtually endless list of potentially liable parties. At your free case evaluation in Fort Myers, The Landau Law Group will let you know who could be financially responsible for your injuries.
We Fight for the Fair Compensation You Deserve
The Landau Law Group fights for the full and fair compensation our injured clients deserve, taking on the responsible parties and their insurance companies and seeing to it that they, not our clients, foot the bill for all economic and noneconomic losses incurred because of the injury.
We can help you recover a settlement or award that includes the following forms of compensation and more:
- Medical Expenses
- Lost Wages
- Reduced Earning Capacity
- Pain and Suffering and Inconvenience

The Statute of Limitations on Work Injury Claims in Florida
In Florida, the statute of limitations on filing a private work injury claim is typically four years, but it can vary based on a number of factors unique to your situation. That is why you should speak with a Fort Myers work injury lawyer as soon as possible after your injury. We will file a quick lawsuit if we need to in order to keep your claim active.
