At Panter, Panter & Sampedro, P.A., our Florida construction worker injury attorneys work closely with medical experts to demonstrate to insurance companies and juries how accidents occurred and injuries resulted. Medical illustrations help juries understand the nature of the injuries. Computer simulations demonstrate the cause of the accident and how the injuries occurred.
We have an on-staff critical care nurse and a doctor who help us assess cases and arrange for the best available medical care for our seriously injured clients. We have handled cases for clients suffering many types of construction-related injuries, including:
- Head injuries from scaffolding falls, falling objects and excavation cave-ins. Head injuries include traumatic brain injury (TBI), closed head injury, skull fractures and concussions. The effects of serious head and brain injuries can include problems with speech and reasoning, mood swings or changes in temperament, headache, dizziness, fatigue, poor memory and concentration, balance problems, blurred vision and ringing in the ears.
- Back and spinal cord injuries from falls, accidents with trucks or heavy equipment or trench collapses. Spinal cord injuries can result in partial or full paralysis (quadriplegia, paraplegia) and loss of bowel and bladder control and sexual functions. Less extreme back injuries can result in severe and ongoing pain, loss of range of motion, and an inability to lift.
- Bone fractures, particularly of joints, can result in impaired range of movement, inability to stand for long periods and ongoing pain and can cause early-onset arthritis. In the worst cases, a serious fracture can result in amputation.
- Electrical accidents from exposed live wires or defective construction equipment can result in severe burns, brain damage and, often, death.
