Filing a Workers' Compensation Claim

Most victims of construction accidents in Texas are employees or subcontractors of the company doing the work. In many of these cases, the issues can be resolved through workers’ compensation. Workers’ compensation, however, does not cover every type of claim, especially when the negligent party was a third-party or subcontractor or there was a defective part or piece of equipment that led to the accident.

There are preventable accidents where a person was injured on the job through the carelessness of an employer or a co-worker.  Under these circumstances, you may file a claim for damages under a workers' compensation plan. The skilled Texas construction lawyers at Zinda Law Group can guide you through the process and help get the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Texas Plant Explosions

A plant explosion is a cataclysmic event that often results in extensive personal injuries and property losses. In many cases, the root cause of the explosion can be traced to human error. There are several different ways that you might win a large damages settlement to cover your physical, emotional, and financial losses from such an explosion.

Due to the complexity of these sorts of cases, however, an experienced plant explosion attorney is a necessity to get the best possible results.  This is because one of the critical steps to getting the compensation necessary to move forward from the harm is establishing which party or parties is responsible for the harm.  The following are some of the more common causes of injuries from an explosion:

  • The blast wave
  • Flying debris
  • Impact
  • Burns
  • Fumes

Filing a Texas Construction Accident Claim

Establishing Liability

When an employee commits a culpable act leading to a construction accident, it often is not feasible to seek damages from the employee himself – they may lack the financial resources to pay a judgment or settlement or may have even been killed in the accident.

Typically, however, if you can prove liability, you can hold the employer responsible for the actions of the employee. In some cases, a plant explosion or construction accident is caused by malfunctioning equipment – this might include a malfunctioning safety valve, design defect, or any number of causes. If you can prove that the accident was caused by a defective, unreasonably dangerous product, you may be able to sue not only the manufacturer of the product, but also the wholesaler and/or the distributor of the product.

Negligence

Negligence is the most commonly used legal basis for personal injury liability. Negligence occurs when someone breaches a duty owed to you and this breach causes you damages.

A common way to establish negligence when there has been a construction accident is to show that they violated Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations governing the safe operation of the premises. Once this is established, it is necessary to show that the breach of regulations actually caused the accident or explosion.  

Depending on the facts of the case, there are other ways to establish negligence, which a skilled Texas construction injury attorney can help you determine.

You May be Eligible to Receive Damages

If the construction accident that injured you or a loved one was the fault of someone else, you can file a lawsuit against the responsible party and/or negotiate a private settlement. The best strategy in many cases is to file a lawsuit in order to force the responsible party to negotiate a settlement. When calculating how much to ask for in damages, you need to think long-term. You are also entitled to damages for your pain, suffering, and other intangible losses. These may be far greater than your award for medical expenses and lost work time. Three main types of personal injury damages are generally available under Texas law:

  • Economic: medical bills, time off work due to injury, and injury-related out-of-pocket expenses, etc.
  • Non-economic: physical pain, mental anguish, and loss of enjoyment of daily activities due to your injury
  • Permanent disability or disfigurement
