Melbourne Construction Accident Attorneys
Were You Injured on the Job?
The construction industry is among the most dangerous for workers. Accidents occur every day. The dangers inherent in the job make it necessary at some sites to post signs announcing the number of days without an accident. That’s how unusual it is to have a day without accidents.
The state of Florida is known for its many construction booms since the 1920’s. Unfortunately, the state has gained a reputation in those years as the home of shoddy construction practices — practices that lead not just to defective buildings, but to injuries among construction workers as well. At our law firm, we have been helping construction workers injured on the job since 1963. We have many years of experience at trial and prepare every case as if it will be presented to a jury.
At Nance Cacciatore, our Melbourne construction accident attorneys use our many years of experience to help victims obtain compensation for medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering.
