Construction Accidents

Dallas Construction Accident Lawyer

Receive Compensation for Your Injuries

Across the nation, there are plenty of jobs and positions that may be considered extremely dangerous. Among them would be the construction industry. With so many moving parts, busy co-workers, and heavy machinery all over, it is easy to see why construction sites can lead to serious injuries for those on site.

Unlike many states, Texas does not require employers to carry workers' compensation insurance for their employees. If your employer does provide this type of coverage and you are injured at work, your compensation will be sought through the insurance company. Another important part of workers' compensation is the fact that filing a claim prevents you from suing your employer - you cannot file a lawsuit against the company while pursuing workers' compensation.

If your employer does not carry workers' compensation, and you sustain an injury on the construction site, it is important to contact a skilled Dallas personal injury attorney as soon as possible. In this situation, it is necessary to prove that some type of negligence played a factor in the accident that caused your injury, regardless of who caused the negligence. It could have been a distracted co-worker, malfunctioning machinery, improper training techniques, or any other dangerous situation for which you were not properly prepared.

What is considered a construction accident?

Construction accidents are daunting because there are so many factors that could cause an injury. The construction site is full of people who may not have received proper training, machinery that may not be working correctly, or chemicals that could cause health problems now, or later in life.

Some common types of construction accidents include:

  • Falling from scaffolding
  • Debris falling from scaffolding
  • Electrocution
  • Forklift accidents
  • Chemical exposure or burns
  • Crane accidents
  • Defective machinery
  • Struck-by accidents
  • Slip and falls
