Construction site accidents can result in catastrophic and fatal injuries, causing stress on the lives of accident victims and their families. Furthermore, if you have a serious injury, you may struggle with the financial costs of medical care, recovery, and other expenses.

Instead, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries, monetary losses, and pain and suffering, and we are here to assist you. Contact Egbuonu Law Trial Lawyers for a free case evaluation to see if your construction site injury qualifies for compensation.

Types of Texas Construction Site Injuries

The following injuries are commonly seen on construction sites:

  • Brain injury
  • spinal cord damage
  • severe burn damage
  • Amputation
  • Shattered or broken bones

There is a chance that some of these injuries will heal completely, but the majority will require both immediate and ongoing medical care, rehabilitation, various types of therapy, and a lifetime of struggle.

Some of the most common construction site injuries will require adaptations to the structure of a home to allow for adaptive technology such as wheelchairs. Some of these accidents may induce paralysis or lifelong disability. Others could still result in death even years after they happen.

Types of Construction Site Accident Claims and Lawsuits

You are entitled to compensation for your construction site injuries and suffering. You may be able to pursue one or more of the following legal claims depending on the particulars of your accident, according to the law.

Worker’s Compensation Claims

Workers’ compensation laws safeguard you if you work in construction in Texas. Additionally, these laws defend your employer from liability. Workers’ compensation insurance allows you to get medical benefits after an accident and a percentage of your lost wages without proving liability or carelessness.

Third-Party Personal Injury Claims

Construction employees may bring a personal injury claim or a third-party claim against any company other than their employer in the event of a construction site accident in Texas. General contractors and subcontractors must provide reasonably safe working environments for their personnel by Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards and regulations.

Product Liability Claims

If you were injured as a result of a faulty product, machinery, or other construction equipment, you may claim the manufacturer or any person in the distribution chain. Faulty construction equipment or malfunctioning can cause significant and often fatal accidents.

Wrongful Death Claims

If you lost a loved one in a construction accident, you and your family may be able to recover damages by filing a wrongful death claim. While no amount of compensation can ever replace the loss you have suffered, you and your family should not have to struggle financially as a result of someone else’s carelessness.

Who is Liable for Construction Site Accidents in Texas?

Several parties could be held responsible for your injuries and losses. Depending on the circumstances of your construction site accident in Texas, the following parties may be held liable:

  • An employer
  • A generic contractor
  • A manufacturer of equipment (or an entity in charge of equipment or vehicle upkeep)
  • A property owner
  • A project manager
  • An architect or designer
  • An electrician, plumber, or other subcontractor on the work site
  • A coworker
  • A different third party
  • Construction Company

Establishing Negligence in a Construction Accident

Your construction site accident lawyer will investigate the accident to find blame to prove liability for your damages. If you file a personal injury claim, your lawyer must show the following elements of carelessness.

  • Duty of Care

First, you must demonstrate that the at-fault person owed you a duty to act in a way that did not put you at an unreasonable risk of injury. A general contractor, for example, may be required to verify compliance with federal or state safety regulations.

  • Breach of Duty

Second, you must demonstrate that the at-fault party breached their duty of care, such as by failing to take reasonable steps to comply with established safety standards.

  • Proximate cause

You must also demonstrate that the breach of duty caused your accident and injuries.

  • Damages

Once these factors are proved, the at-fault person is held accountable for her physical, mental, and economic damage.
