You can reasonably expect your workplace to be safe. Unfortunately, this is not always the case and an unsafe workplace environment can lead to short- and long-term injuries, or even death.

Call The Landau Law Group at (866) 703-4878 to learn more about how a work injury lawyer in Naples, Florida, can help you.
Compensation to Which You May Be Entitled
An injury you suffer on the job may enable you to file a third-party claim against the negligent party for damages that, depending on your specific case, may include:
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning capacity
- Out-of-pocket medical expenses
- Current and future medical expenses
These injuries can occur in an environment where someone other than your employer fails to act in a way that ensures your safety.
However, these are not the only injuries that occur at work, and if you have suffered any short- or long-term injury, we recommend that you call a work injury lawyer Naples, FL. Call The Landau Law Group at (866) 703-4878 to learn more about how we can help you or your loved one.
Wrongful Death Damages
Although workplace fatalities have fallen slightly in frequency, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, they still unfortunately occur. If a loved one passed away due to third-party negligence while at work, we want to help. We can take a look at your case and determine if you can file a wrongful death claim to pursue damages. There is a statute of limitations of two years on these kinds of cases. Reach out to us for help in filing these claims.
Some Ways Workplace Injuries Can Occur
In a variety of occupations, workers can suffer injuries due to a third party’s negligence. Some of the types of cases we see are due to injuries like the following:
Vehicle and Equipment Accidents
These can occur at the workplace when a worker is transporting goods or people around a construction site, or onto and off of the site. Negligent use of equipment or vehicles can result in a variety of injuries.
Exposure to Harmful Substances
Exposure to toxic or harmful substances can lead to breathing problems or burns. A third party you work with may also expose you to a substance like asbestos, which can cause long-term illness and potential disability.
Slips, Trips, and Falls
Factors like poor maintenance, a failure to stack items safely, cordon off unsafe areas, or put warning signs in place may contribute to slips, trips, and falls.
These are not the only circumstances that can result in injury on a worksite. Regardless of how you were injured, you have the right to contact a work injury lawyer in Naples, FL. You may be able to pursue compensation from the at-fault party or parties. Call The Landau Law Group at (866) 703-4878 to find out more.
You Have a Limited Time to Act
The statute of limitations in Florida imposes a timeline of four years in which to pursue legal action for your injuries. If you fail to file a lawsuit within this time, you may be unable to recover compensation for your injuries. This could leave you paying out of pocket for your injuries.
What to Do Following an Injury at Work
There are several measures you should take following a workplace injury. These can include:
Reporting the Accident
Most workplaces are required to enforce policies that require you to document and report your accident. Establishing a detailed account of the circumstances of your accident shortly after your injury can help link your injuries to the accident.
Getting Medical Attention
Make sure you are treated for your injuries. This is not only the best way to begin healing, but to also connect your injuries and your accident. Additionally, such evidence can be helpful in building your case.
Refusing to Speak With the Other Party’s Insurer
You may receive a call from the other party’s insurer shortly after your injury. We recommend that you do not discuss any aspects of your injury or how it occurred with the insurance adjuster. They are likely looking for something they can use against you to deny or devalue your claim.
If the insurance adjuster calls you, tell them that you need to speak with your lawyer first and then give us a call.
