Construction Site Falling Injury Attorney in Fort Worth

Every construction worker on the job site is entitled to work in a safe environment. This means that the area needs to be free of any debris and clutter that could easily cause a trip, slip or fall. In fact, the walkways and access areas must be free of any slick surface. In addition, the jobsite should contain solid scaffolding, and properly maintained heavy equipment to avoid any hazardous work environment. However, in spite of these obvious inherent dangers, even the most professional construction worker puts their lives at risk every day to earn a living. When a serious fall happens on a construction site, there can be devastating ramifications to the injured worker and the members of his or her family. As a result, many injured victims hire the skills of Fort Worth TX construction site falling injury attorneys to help protect their rights. Out of the hundreds of construction jobsite deaths every year, nearly 1/3 of them are the result of a fall from a height. This includes construction workers that fall from rooftops, through the roof, office scaffolding, off a ladder, out of a window, from a pole, off a lift, out of a bucket or hoist, or through a hole. Compensation If you, or a loved one, have been injured as a result of a construction site fall, you are entitled to fair compensation for your mounting medical bills and lost wages. However, if your employer does not carry workers’ compensation coverage, or has said you do not qualify for coverage, you will need to hire the skills of an experienced personal injury attorney that handles construction injuries cases. Depending on all of the evidence involved in your construction accident, the owner of the property, the general contractor, subcontractors, and other parties are possibly legally at fault. If there is no available workers’ compensation coverage, you are entitled to file a lawsuit for monetary damages against all responsible parties. In fact, even with workers compensation coverage, you may be entitled to recover compensation for your injuries based on third-party liability. This includes working on different construction sites including petrochemical plants, downtown office buildings, shopping centers, government buildings and residential developments. Building a Strong Case An experienced injury attorney will build a strong and effective case. The lawyer will use investigative resources to determine who is responsible for the unsafe environment at your job site. An experienced attorney will consult with accident investigators to expose any violation of OSHA safety standards that led to the unsafe conditions at the construction site. In addition, your attorney will work with medical professionals to determine the nature and scope of your injuries. This way you can receive fair compensation for all of your past, current and future medical treatments/procedures to get well. It is important to take legal action as soon as possible after your injuries occur. Your attorney can pursue every option available against your employer to achieve recovery for your damages, injuries, pain and suffering.
