Construction is a dangerous activity. Workers, visitors, and passersby are at risk for serious injury or death as a result of construction site conditions and construction-related activity. Construction injuries pose complex legal issues because multiple parties, legal principles, and safety rules are involved. If you or someone you know has been injured or killed in a construction accident, it is important to obtain experienced and strong legal representation early on. Investigations must be conducted and evidence must be preserved. Delay only makes your case more difficult.
According to OSHA, roughly one in five worker deaths each year are construction related. A high percentage of injuries each year are also construction related. Construction casualties are often caused by:
- Equipment Failure
- Exposure to Chemicals or Dangerous Products
- Unsafe Site Conditions
- Human Error
OSHA and industry standards impose a variety of safety rules designed to reduce the risk of construction injuries. Cutting costs and corners and ignoring safety rules and practices increase the risk of construction accidents.
Determining who is at fault when someone is injured at a construction or job site is essential but often complicated. Under Texas law, an employee injured on the job can file a workers’ compensation claim against his employer, but cannot file a personal injury claim against the employer except for wrongful death cases. The employee can, however, file a personal injury claim against other contractors or responsible parties. As a result, in construction or job-site injury cases, it is important to identify non-employer parties who may have contributed to the injury. In most construction or job-site injury cases, the injured person will have both a worker’s compensation claim against the employer and a personal injury claim against the owner or contractor who caused or contributed to the injury.
