Austin has become one of the premiere cities to live in the southwest. The diversity of cultures and communities throughout the city is one of the main reasons so many folks are moving here. In fact, 110 people are moving into Austin every single day. With that influx, comes more construction. From apartments and condos to high-rise buildings, Austin’s construction industry is booming. Unfortunately, where there’s more construction, there’s more on-the-job accidents, and in our experience, employers don’t always do the right thing for their injured employees.

Most folks assume that if they’re injured in a construction accident, they will automatically qualify for workers’ compensation. However, not all employers in Texas are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance, which means injured workers have no immediate recourse for financial support after a workplace accident. That’s why it’s vitally important that you consult with a lawyer before you take any other action. An experienced lawyer can help determine whether or not your accident was caused by someone else’s negligence, and if so, fight to get you the compensation you deserve.

At Daniel Stark, we know that most Austin construction workers depend on every single paycheck to make ends meet. That’s why we make it easy for folks injured on the job to get the legal help they need. From a free initial consultation to our No Fee Guarantee, you can rest assured that we’ll do everything within our power to get you maximum compensation for your injuries in the least amount of time.
