We Help You File Workers’ Compensation or Third-Party Claims
In most cases, construction accidents fall under two types of cases: workers’ compensation or a third party, personal injury case. The type of case we will pursue on your behalf will depend upon the details of your unique situation.
Here is a bit more about each type of case and how our team can help Vero Beach construction accident victims.
How We Help with Workers’ Compensation Claims
Florida law requires most companies to carry workers’ compensation insurance, which is responsible for covering most of the costs when a worker is injured while at work. Workers’ compensation claims do not consider blame.
Our team can help with your Vero Beach workers’ compensation claim by:
- Gathering evidence to support your claim
- Filing your initial claim
- Gathering additional documents if required
- Filing an appeal if you receive a claim denial
- Representing you to a judge, if needed
A Vero Beach construction accident attorney can help protect your rights and fight for the coverage you deserve.
How We Help with Third-Party Construction Accident Claims
If you were not working at the time of the accident, or if the negligence of a third party (not your employer) caused your injury, you may be able to pursue a third-party personal injury claim.
Here are a few examples of construction injuries where we might pursue a personal injury claim:
- The victim was walking past a construction site when an object fell from a crane, crushing the victim.
- While working as a contractor on a construction site, the victim was exposed to toxic chemicals, which another contractor onsite had improperly stored.
- A victim fell from scaffolding that another party onsite had incorrectly erected.
In these cases, our team will help in the following ways:
- Gather reports and documents to support your claim
- Determine who was negligent, and thus legally responsible for damages
- File a claim on your behalf to recover damages
- Negotiate a settlement
- File a lawsuit and fight for your rights in court, if required

Damages You May Recover in Your Construction Accident Claim
After a Vero Beach construction accident, the bills can start piling up quickly. In addition to facing astronomical medical bills, you might be unable to work while you heal. However, in most cases, you can recover these and other damages.
The most common damages we recover for construction accident victims are:
In both personal injury and workers’ compensation claims, most victims recover the full cost of any medical care they require due to their injuries. These damages may include ambulance costs, hospitalization bills, surgeries, long-term care, and rehabilitation costs.
Workers’ compensation may also reimburse for travel costs to attend doctor’s appointments.
In most construction accident cases, victims recover the loss of pay caused by their inability to work. Workers’ compensation typically only covers a portion of lost wages. If you are eligible to file an injury claim, you can recover the entirety of your wages.
Pain and Suffering
Pain and suffering compensation covers the physical and emotional toll your injury has had on your life and your mental state. Victims are not able to recover pain and suffering damages through a workers’ compensation claim, only through personal injury cases.
Wrongful Death Damages
If your loved one passed away due to injuries that occurred on a Vero Beach construction site, your family may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim. Contact the Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers team for more information about pursuing a wrongful death claim in Vero Beach.
