Workplace Accidents

Experienced Lawyers Representing Workplace Accident Victims

If you have been injured in a workplace accident, you may be confused and worried about taking action. An attorney’s advice about how to handle the situation can be invaluable. At The Law Offices of Michael R. Herron, P.A., in Tampa, Florida, we represent people who have been injured in the workplace.

Our legal team serves people who have sustained relatively minor to serious injuries. These include injuries to joints, broken bones, back and neck injuries, brain injuries and burns. We also represent the surviving families of people killed in workplace accidents.

Handling Even the Most Challenging Cases

Lawyers at our law firms have the ability to handle even the most challenging accidents, including the ones listed below:

  • Forklift accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents on wet stairs or equipment
  • Fall injuries, including pieces of roof or other debris that falls
  • Equipment related accidents, like accidents on bulldozers, cranes and other heavy equipment
  • Injuries caused by power tools
  • Injuries caused by improperly maintained workplaces
  • Construction accidents
  • Scaffolding fall

It’s Not Always About Workers’ Comp

Many people wrongly believe that workplace accidents can only be covered by workers’ compensation. This is simply not true. There are many situations where people injured in workplace accidents can file separate personal injury lawsuits. These include situations where workers sustain job sit injuries caused by sub-contractors or other visitors to the job site, and situations where dangerous or defective equipment causes the injury. If there is also a valid worker’s comp claim we can refer you to a skilled worker’s comp attorney and work closely with them to guarantee the best possible recovery in your case.
