Were you or someone you love injured in a construction accident? Proving the cause of the accident, identifying the at-fault party, and assigning financial liability after the accident can be challenging. You do not have to handle your case or navigate the compensation recovery process on your own. At GED Lawyers, our Naples construction accident lawyer is committed to helping injured clients recover compensation for their injuries and property damage.
To bolster and support your case, our legal team will identify the at-fault party and communicate with them and their insurance company on your behalf. We will negotiate with the insurer or help you prepare an effective court case. Our goal is to obtain the best possible outcome for you so can start rebuilding your life. While we focus on your case, you can focus on getting better.
Damages We Fight To Recover After a Construction Accident
After a construction accident, you are entitled to two types of damages — financial and non-financial. If your family lost a loved one as a result of the accident, you could also recover wrongful death damages.
Rarely, punitive damages might be awarded. Punitive damages are only awarded when the at-fault party’s actions are considered malicious or egregious. Our case assessment team will assess the types of damages you can recover and calculate their monetary value.
Recovering Financial and Non-Financial Damages
In 2020, transportation, accidental falls, and environmental hazards were the causes of many construction accidents with almost 5000 deaths occurring nationwide according to Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data. These types of accidents can lead to serious, even lifelong, injuries that require costly and extensive treatment.
The financial damages we seek for you include expenses and losses that have a monetary value that can be substantiated with bills, receipts, and other documents. They include:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Property damage
- Property loss
Non-financial damages are more difficult to quantify on your own. We will ensure you understand your right to recover the following damages and the evidence we use to prove their monetary value:
- Physical disability
- Physical disfigurement
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Emotional distress
Handling your case means we stop at nothing to fight for optimal recovery for you and your family. It also means we will leave no stone unturned in building a robust evidence file that drives the settlement negotiation process.
Recovering Wrongful Death Damages for the Loss of a Loved One
The unexpected loss of a family member can be devastating. While you focus on helping your family cope with its loss, our law firm will fight for the following wrongful death damages:
- Funeral and burial costs
- Loss of financial contributions
- Loss of household contributions
- Loss of companionship and society
- Loss of guidance and support
We also ensure your family’s wrongful death case is filed on time and by the appropriate family members.
The Timing of Your Compensation Request Is Important
If you or a loved one were injured in a construction accident in Naples, the timing of your case is governed by state law. According to Florida Statutes § 95.11, you generally have two years to file your personal injury lawsuit and two years to file your wrongful death lawsuit.
Failure to comply with these deadlines could mean:
- You will not be able to file your lawsuit at all
- Your lawsuit will be dismissed without being heard
- You will have no legal avenue to compel compensation
At GED Lawyers, our construction accident lawyer helps clients in Naples, FL fight for compensation. When you are ready to seek recovery, we make sure your potential lawsuit is filed in time to comply with the relevant statute of limitations.
Our Fee Structure Supports Compliance With the Filing Deadline
Our law firm represents injured clients on a contingency fee basis. This fee agreement benefits you because:
- In place of hourly fees, we accept a percentage of your financial award
- If you do not recover compensation, you do not owe our law firm any fees
- Your case can get started right away avoiding potentially costly delays
Our fee structure does not add to the financial impact of an accident. Instead, it means you get legal service and support when you need it most.
