When you were hurt in a construction accident, you may have felt that it was pretty clear whose negligence caused your injury. However, when you confronted the responsible party or parties about their involvement in your accident, you may have been surprised when they replied with “prove it.”
Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for negligent individuals to deny the part they played in your injury. With a lot of money, their reputation, and possibly even their job on-the-line, people will say or do anything they can to avoid taking responsibility for their actions. We know that proving negligence is the last thing you want to deal with as you heal from your traumatic accident, and that's why as construction accident attorneys—we are always ready to help you.
To prove negligence, our law firm will perform a full investigation to collect evidence. Evidence builds your case against the negligent party or parties and can be your key to a successful outcome. The evidence we collect needs to prove that the other person was responsible for your injuries and that they did not act according to an acceptable standard of safety. Evidence we may try to collect could include:
- Testimony from witnesses
- Medical reports
- Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) violation and citation records
- An examination of the accident site and equipment that was being used
Texas leads the nation in work-related accidents, which unfortunately, means we are no strangers to construction accident cases. The Hart Law Firm knows exactly what to look for to prove negligence after a construction accident and will work tirelessly to ensure you receive a fair settlement.
