Construction Accident Lawyers
Construction sites, especially those large commercial sites, are considerably
more hazardous than the average workplace, particularly when considering
the large trucks making deliveries, heavy equipment, the entering and
exiting of sub-contractors, inexperienced coworkers and more. Additionally,
these types of construction sites will often have live electrical wires
exposed as well as hazardous material present. While most of these construction
companies carry workman's compensation insurance, there are significant
limitations on the compensation that will be paid out to an injured party
— depending on the type of injury and the severity of the injury.
Generally, based on the high risk of injury and the risk of more grave
construction injury victim will require more compensation that the workman's compensation insurance
will pay them.
The problem is that the laws that govern these types of injuries are quite
complex, making it virtually impossible for the average person to effectively
protect their interests as they pursue fair compensation for their injuries.
Additionally, it is possible that the injury may not fall completely under
workman's compensation laws — disqualifying the claim for workman's
compensation. It is possible that a construction worker who has been injured
on the job may be ill informed as to their rights as an injury victim,
emphasizing the need for professional counsel.
If you or a loved one has been seriously injured due to a construction
site accident in Texas, you will need the assistance of a qualified and
skilled construction accident lawyer, who is capable of representing you
during the process of filing the claim for the injury, as well as filing
any legal documents, including a lawsuit if necessary. At The Doan Law
Firm, our legal team is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to the laws
that govern these types of injuries, and we are extremely aggressive in
pursuing the compensation that you deserve for your injuries and the associated expenses.
Common Causes of Construction Site Injuries
The very nature of construction site activity places workers at a higher
risk of being injured, and the common causes of injuries at construction
sites are multitudinous. One of the most common causes of injuries on
construction sites is a mistake on the part of a co-worker; however, there
are a number of causes that are more prevalent than human error on the
part of a co-worker. For instance, poorly maintained equipment is one
of the most common causes of accidents on construction sites. Also, machinery
malfunction is a common cause of personal injuries. When a person is injured
in an accident at a construction site, it is important to take immediate
action. Because determining who is at fault is immensely important to
the recovery of fair compensation for the victim, a thorough investigation
will be necessary. At The Doan Law Firm, our legal team is qualified and
prepared to conduct an investigation into the cause of the accident, in
order to determine the party responsible. Our lawyers and investigators
will use their knowledge and law education, in conjunction with the immeasurable
resources we provide them, taking the necessary steps to ensure that you
are able to recover the financial compensation that you deserve.
The Different Types of Claims
The type of claim that we will file on your behalf will depend greatly
on the severity of the injury and the circumstances surrounding the injury.
Some of the more common claims that will be filed include, emotional suffering,
medical costs (past, present and future), pain and suffering and punitive
damages. There are instances in which victims of construction accidents
are unduly denied compensation by the construction company, their insurance
company and their legal team. This is why you should contact The Doan
Law Firm if you are a victim of a construction site accident. When you
contact us, we will schedule your initial consultation, where you will
sit down with one of our construction site injury experts in order to
discuss the details of your case. Our attorneys will evaluate the merits
of your case, and if they determine that you have a right to be compensated
for your injuries, we will immediately begin the process of building your case.
We have developed a reputation for aggressively pursuing the party responsible
for injuring our clients, and we are committed to working through the
entire process until the case has been settled. We have collected millions
of dollars in settlements and awards.
The Importance of Working with a Reputable Attorney
While there are some people who attempt to file an injury claim on their
own, it is not recommended. The complex nature of these types of cases
can easily overwhelm a person who does not have the experience and thorough
knowledge of the laws that govern these types of injuries. Rarely will
a person who represents themselves in this type of case receive the compensation
they deserve for their injuries. When an injury victim does not receive
the compensation that they deserve, it is likely that they will experience
financial difficulty as the medical expenses begin to pile up, or as they
deal with their diminished capacity to earn a living.
