Construction Injury Litigation

Construction is one of the most dangerous jobs in Florida. Workers fall from scaffolds, are struck by construction site vehicles such as forklifts and bulldozers, are exposed to toxic chemicals, and more. Many of these injuries are life-changing, such as severe burns, compound fractures, and brain or spinal cord injuries.

While most construction accident losses are addressed by workers’ compensation benefits, others involve defective products or equipment or negligence on the part of third parties such as vendors or suppliers. Sutton Law Group has represented many individuals involved in serious catastrophic construction site injuries arising from:

  • Falls from height (scaffolding, ladders)
  • Falling objects or debris
  • Electrocution
  • Crane accidents
  • Defective or malfunctioning equipment
  • Subcontractor or contractor negligence

At Sutton Law Group, we take on construction accident cases throughout Florida, and in some occasions, in other states. We represent clients in negotiations with those responsible for their losses and in litigation at every level of state and federal courts.
