Who Can I Hold Responsible for My Injuries?
When a construction worker is injured, oftentimes an owner, contractor, engineer, electrician, architect, equipment manufacturer, scaffolding company and/or insurance company can be held responsible. We can help you investigate the incident and determine if negligence played a role in your accident.
Examples of common construction accidents include:
- Building collapse
- Chemical spills
- Electrical shocks
- Equipment accidents (including those involving scaffolding, cranes and ladders)
- Exposure to toxic substances
- Falling materials (such as rocks or bricks)
- Fires / explosions
- Inadequate barricades
- OSHA noncompliance issues
- Trenching injuries
As a construction worker, you have the right to a reasonably safe work environment. OSHA has strict guidelines in place to protect workers, include strict safety training, procedures for handling hazardous materials, proper marking of unsafe conditions, and more. When supervisors and construction companies do not follow these guidelines, they can be held liable for any injuries that result.
If you were injured on the job, you can file for workers' compensation benefits. As a modified comparative fault state, Texas allows you to recover damages for injuries, even if you were negligent (as long as your negligence does not outweigh that of the other negligent parties). If your injuries resulted from a third party (such as a manufacturer, a subcontractor, an architect or engineer, etc.), you can hold them responsible by filing a personal injury lawsuit. Our construction accident lawyers in Fort Worth can explore your options with you and help you through the entire legal process.
