Personal Injury & Wrongful Death Attorneys
for Ft. Lauderdale, Miami & Florida Keys

In Florida, injured workers are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits to cover medical treatment and lost wages. This vital program relieves you of the often difficult and lengthy burden of proving your employer was at fault. In return for immediate relief, employers are immune from lawsuits in most situations. However, manufacturers of defective equipment do not share in that immunity.

Brais Law Firm helps you recover for injuries resulting from faulty equipment or scaffolding. Our Miami products liability attorneys have substantial experience investigating complex workplace liability claims. Defects in equipment and scaffolding often go unnoticed by the naked eye. However, we conduct a thorough investigation to determine what went wrong. We consult with engineers, machinists, mechanics and other construction industry professionals to determine whether a product defect contributed to your workplace injuries.

During the past four years, our law firm has recovered close to $40 million for our clients in cases involving workplace injuries, products liability and other injury claims*. Review our Results page for more information about our recent successes.


OSHA and Labor Department Violations

Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulates workplace safety. However, this small agency has only about 2,000 inspectors available to inspect more than 8 million websites with a total of about 130 million workers. Dangerous conditions thus often avoid OSHA detection until a serious or fatal accident occurs. This inability to enforce OSHA regulations leaves workers vulnerable to workplace injuries and deaths.

The most cited violations by OSHA are common in the construction industry, including:

  • Fall protection deficiencies in harnesses, ropes and platforms
  • Collapse of scaffolding, resulting in falls and objects falling upon workers
  • Insufficient respiratory protection, leading to lung disease
  • Lockout and tagout of energy that results in electrocution
  • Problems with powered industrial trucks and heavy equipment
  • Defective ladders that topple or break
  • Faulty electrical wiring and electrical systems design that give rise to fires and electrocution
  • Missing or deficient machinery and machine guards that allow fingers, hair and clothing to get caught and shards of material to fly into eyes

Construction Injury Damages

Construction is the most dangerous trade, accounting for 20.5 percent of work-related deaths and a high percentage of serious injuries every year. OSHA claims that 518 lives could be saved by eliminating the “fatal four” — falls, electrocutions, struck by objects and caught in between objects.

Brais Law Firm is dedicated to helping you recover damages caused by defective construction products, including:

  • Crushed fingers and limbs
  • Amputations
  • Bone fractures
  • Eye injuries and blindness
  • Hearing loss
  • Back injuries
  • Nerve damage and paralysis
  • Brain damage
  • Facial injuries
  • Burns and electrocution
  • Scars and disfigurement
  • Disabilities
  • Loss of ability to work
  • Death of your loved one
