Construction Zone Injuries
People on construction sites wear hard hats and boots for a reason, even if they can’t always prevent injuries. Broken bones, back injuries, electrocutions, and burns are just a few of the common injuries found on construction sites. Not to mention that serious car accidents happen in construction zones all the time.
The construction industry is inherently dangerous. In fact, more than 20 percent of occupational fatalities each year are in construction, although the industry only employs roughly eight percent of U.S. workers, according to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.
If you or someone you love has been injured on a construction site—as an employee or a visitor to the site—then you need to investigate your legal rights.
Accident or negligence?
If you’ve been injured on a construction site, was it truly just an accident or were you hurt by someone’s negligence? It’s important to call a construction accident attorney as soon as possible who will assess the situation and examine all aspects of the case.
It’s also important to take care of yourself. See your doctor and follow all of his advice. Don’t let money worries keep you from getting proper health care! When you hire us, we’ll keep track of the details so we’ll be prepared to prove to the insurance company that you need compensation.
Won’t I get workers’ compensation?
While workers’ compensation benefits are designed to provide workers with financial support for medical bills and a portion of lost wages following an on-the-job injury, not all employers in Texas offer workers’ compensation benefits. These employers are subject to different laws and requirements.
Depending on the nature of your accident, your injury might affect your occupational future indefinitely, which can have an impact on the amount of money you are owed. Give us a call to find out how we can help with your unique situation.
