Can I recover more than workers’ compensation benefits in Florida if I am injured on a construction site?

Yes, not always. It depends upon the facts of the case. Everything depends on the facts. But there might be other contractors on the construction site that are available as defendants if they were negligent, the landholder may be available as a defendant if he fell through a roof. The contractor, or previous contractor, or architecture engineer may be responsible for your injuries. Passers by may be responsible for your injuries. There are many people potentially responsible for your injuries on a construction site, but it always fact dependent.
