Fort Lauderdale Constructions Accidents On The Rise

Rescue teams have been busy when it comes to construction accidents lately. Last week, Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue was busy helping a 24-year-old man who fell about 10 feet from some scaffolding. If that sounds routine, in this case, it was not.

“Access to the patient was limited based upon the building being under construction,” said Battalion Chief Stephan Gollan. For this rescue, there were no elevators and not even the stairs we complete.

They say this is the second time in two days the city’s Technical Rescue Team has been deployed, having rescued a 35-year-old the day before at a construction site downtown. Gollan attributes the increase in rescues to all of the new construction going on downtown.

Vladimir Tsirkin & Associates understand that work injuries are just one of many ways people can get hurt. If you need a Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorney, you can count on us to secure the compensation you deserve for all of your accident-related expenses.

The Injuries

While you may not think of the possibility of getting hurt while going about your daily activities, you can never predict when someone else’s negligence will cause you harm. Today, we want to talk about some of the common ways in which personal injury cases arise.

  • Work Injuries – As the intro story shows, work injuries can happen. In fact, the BLS says that there were 2.8 million nonfatal work injuries and illnesses reported for the latest year. If an employer is careless or does not provide proper equipment and training, they should be held liable.
  • Dog Bites/Attacks – There are over 4 million bites reported each year in the US and many of those require medical treatment. If a dog owner is careless when it comes to securing their pet, they could cause major injuries.
  • Vehicle Crashes – For the latest reporting year in Florida, there were over 400,000 car crashes. Out of those, there were 254,310 injuries. Many of these crashes were caused by extreme driver negligence (drunk driving, distracted driving, speeding, etc.).
  • Medical Errors – Medical mistakes kill an average of 250,000 people a year and injure millions more. They are the third leading cause of death in the US.
  • Slip and Fall Incidents – Slip and fall incidents and other premises liability cases happen when a property owner is negligent in their duties and allows unsafe conditions to harm their patrons.
