NEW YORK, April 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Construction sites can be dangerous places, especially for the workers. A recent story out of Florida revealed that a jury awarded a $64.5 million settlement to a man who was seriously injured back in 2009 when a building collapsed on him.
According to an article in the Tampa Bay Times, the victim, Robert Williams, was working at a Mosaic Co. construction site when an 11,000-pound prefab building fell on him, crushing his pelvis, legs and internal organs. Although the jury's decision found three different companies responsible for the accident, they placed the vast majority of the blame to Mosaic, a large fertilizer maker that operates throughout Central Florida.
When a construction worker is injured on the job, he or she has rights. For victims and families filing lawsuits as a result of an injury or death of a loved one while on the job, cases can often take years to be successfully resolved. A recent story in The Wall Street Journal stated that because of the current backlog in the Federal Court system, victims are waiting even longer for their cases to be heard. According to the article, "civil suits are piling up in some of the nation's federal courts, leading to long delays in cases involving Social Security benefits, personal injury and civil rights, among others."
