From a legal perspective, injuries that stem from construction accidents can be more complicated than other types of work injuries for a number of reasons, including:
- The number of potentially responsible parties. Construction sites are usually bustling with different crews, contractors, and individuals, and responsibility for accidents could fall on any of those parties as well as property owners, employers, and even equipment manufacturers. From the very start, this adds many layers of complication to injured victims’ claims, and many more chances to jeopardize your rights without more information.
- Unclear answers about workers’ compensation. Many workers believe that workers’ compensation will cover any injuries that take place at work, but what if your employer doesn’t carry workers’ compensation, your injuries aren’t covered, or your claim is very complicated? There are many ways to approach construction accident claims, and you might be surprised at some of the options that are available to you beyond workers’ comp.
As a result of the often complicated legal landscape after an accident, many workers who are injured on Texas worksites aren’t sure what their legal options are or even how to find out. This is exactly why our Colleyville office offers a free consultation to injured construction workers and their families. Because determining your options depends so much on the fine details of what happened and who was involved, getting an attorney involved means that you are able to get clear information about every legal option available to you, quickly and without risk or obligation.
