Involved in Construction Accident?
Representing Injured Construction Workers
While the construction industry has given jobs to many people, it is also one of the most dangerous sectors to work in. However, construction workers have legal rights and are entitled to representation in the case of a construction accident. Most workers are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, while the relatives of deceased workers are entitled to death benefits.
You need an experienced construction accident attorney to help you get through it. Our attorneys have years of experience representing clients in construction accident lawsuits. We understand your need for someone who knows the ropes and we can focus on getting you the compensation you deserve.
You May be Entitled to Compensation
In the event of any construction-related accident, seek the advice of a lawyer familiar with Texas state laws as well as federal laws to go over the options you have available.
First, it is important to understand your rights under the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act. These benefits are available regardless of fault and provide medical care to treat the injury as well as partial income benefits to replace a portion of lost wages. So whether your own negligence, your employer’s or a coworker’s negligence caused the accident, you may be able to recover benefits.
Providing workers’ compensation benefits protects employers from liability in a personal injury lawsuit, though. So workers may be unable to sue their employer for injuries they sustained on the jobsite when they are covered by workers’ compensation. However, when a third party is to blame for construction-related injuries, the worker may pursue compensation from the third party via lawsuit. These types of cases are a type of personal injury lawsuit and not uncommon in construction accident cases given the many parties involved in construction projects. We will analyze the facts at hand and advise you on the best course of action possible.
If you are injured and have to miss work in any capacity, it is always in your best interest to seek the advice of a construction injury lawyer.
