I fell over a brick on a public sidewalk next to a construction site and was hurt. Can I sue the construction company?
In the state of Florida if you’re walking down a sidewalk and trip over a brick that’s been dislodged or somehow made to be a hazard as a result of a nearby construction project or construction company, you do have the right to sue that construction company for your damages. That is assuming that they participated or caused that hazard. So if something they did in some way negligent or they failed to maintain the area which caused this hazard, it results in your fall ultimately resulting in your injuries, you absolutely do have a claim.
