About Accidents in Construction Zones
How Houston Treats Construction Accident Claims
Are you a construction worker? If so, you know the risks that you are exposed to everyday. From nails to extreme heights and heavy machinery, construction-related jobs are high-risk. Although there are organizations put into place to protect workers, such as OSHA, there is still the chance that one may still find themselves in a precarious situation. If premises are not properly secured or thoroughly inspected for hazards, workers and worksite visitors may experience extreme injuries.
When it comes to construction accidents, the sad truth is that they are often preventable. If proper training were put into effect, they number of construction accidents would greatly decrease. Poor management decisions and bad communication on behalf of contractors and workers can cause gross negligence to play a large factor in accidents. If accidents could have been avoided, but you or a loved one was still hurt or killed by a construction accident, it is important to contact a
Houston personal injury attorney from our firm as soon as possible.
Victims of construction accidents often suffer fall from heights, machinery accidents such as forklifts and cranes, welding accidents or crush injuries from falling debris. These debilitating and sometimes catastrophic injuries can leave injured victims with lifelong complications. It is not uncommon for high medical debt and doctor's bills to quickly add up for construction victims. Filing for worker's compensation is often their only option, but when company's insurance low-balls injured victims, they may be eligible to sue their employer for negligence or liability issues.
