Hurt on the job? We can help!
Construction workers are accustomed to operating in a hazardous environment, and they generally employ safety equipment and follow procedures to avoid accidents.

At The Law Offices of Jason K.S. Porter, P.A., our Jacksonville construction accident lawyers have dedicated their careers to fighting for the rights of injured victims. When the site owner, contractor, sub-contractor, or anyone else in the chain of command fails to maintain a safe work environment, you deserve the chance to seek compensation to help cover the costs of your injury, recovery, pain and suffering, and more. Don't hesitate to reach out to us today if you were injured on a work site.
What Compensation Am I Entitled To?
Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may be entitled to compensation through a personal injury lawsuit, workers' compensation or a combination of both. Our state legislature recognizes the hazards of construction work, and consequently makes it mandatory for construction companies to carry workers' compensation insurance, as well as requiring subcontractors to supply proof of workers' compensation coverage. Your settlement from your employer may be limited to workers' compensation benefits, but there is a possibility that you can sue a third party whose negligence caused or contributed to your workplace injuries.
