Construction Accident Lawyers in Austin
Some of the most dangerous jobsites in America are construction zones. By nature, these areas are wrought with hazards that could potentially lead to problems for both workers and visitors of the site. The accidents that occur on the site of construction zones nationwide are so serious, in fact, that the industry has been labeled as one of particular danger. For example, in 2004, more than 1,000 construction workers reportedly lost their lives in fatality accidents that occurred on the job. This statistic does not bode well for the onsite workers of construction zones in states throughout the U.S. Employees in the construction field are subjected to a number of on-the-job dangers, and as such, deserve to be represented by a legal professional when an accident causes injury or death.

Construction Worksites Can be Hazardous
Although construction work itself cannot be avoided entirely, there are specific hazards of the work that can – and should – be circumvented at all costs. Unfortunately, operation managers and other construction site officials often overlook these hazards and allow their employees to continue working in extremely dangerous situations. From scaffolding accidents / failures, to roofing accidents involving building collapses, to falling objects or debris, any number of situations can cause extreme danger to the persons involved.
Knowing that you have the legal right to take action for a construction accident that involved a fire, explosion, electric shock, faulty machinery, or exposure to toxic chemical is the first step. Some victims of construction accidents that result in injury do not take action because they are unaware of their ability to do so. Do not let this happen to you! If you were injured in a construction accident that caused you physical harm or emotional trauma, you are legally entitled to seek compensation for your pain and suffering. The construction attorneys at Zinda Law Group of Austin are here to help guide you through the process and seek maximum compensation for your injuries.
Holding the Construction Site Liable
Construction sites are reliant on human operation in order to run smoothly and properly. Unfortunately, the individuals who own and operate construction zones often act negligently or even recklessly when making decisions regarding the site's performance or directing the employees who work there. When accidents are caused by a person's negligence, poor decision making, or even absentmindedness, you may be able to hold someone liable for the incident.
Construction sites that are not properly designed or inspected can easily be wrought with hazardous that could pose danger to workers that could otherwise have been safe. The same is true of construction materials that are improperly stored and hazards that are improperly marked. When an employee or visitor of the site is unaware of the dangerous conditions before them there is much more room for error, thereby enhancing the possibility for accidents, injuries and even death.
