Construction sites are some of the most dangerous workplaces in America. Texas law requires general contractors of building projects to provide and maintain safe working conditions on job sites. However, many contractors will cut corners in an attempt to generate larger profits which can create dangerous workplaces. Even passersby can be injured if workers or supervisors are negligent or do not handle construction equipment correctly.

Construction accident laws are complicated and hiring an experience personal injury attorney can help you to recover your losses. You may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering.
Who Can Seek Damages After A Construction Accident?
After a construction accident, your legal rights depend on if you were a worker or a bystander at the site. If you are just a bystander, regular personal injury law applies to your case and you can sue the person or company at fault for your injuries. If you are a construction worker, the situation is much more complex. Construction workers may be entitled to compensation from more than one source (e.g. insurance companies, workers’ compensation, property owners, equipment manufactures or architects). Each case is different and you should seek the help of our attorneys in order to obtain the maximum compensation that the law entitles you receive.
