Our compassionate Texas City construction accident attorneys are committed to assisting you in recovering the most out of your case.
The type of claim you bring forward after a construction accident is based on the specific circumstances of your injuries or loss. Most of the claims emanating from a construction accident are:
Filing a personal injury claim following a construction accident requires you to show that someone was negligent before the accident happened. Essentially, you must identify ways in which another party may have failed to observe the duty of care as required. For example, if no warnings were showing that construction was ongoing, and you drove right into a ditch or construction zone, then you may argue that the responsible parties did nothing to prepare and warn you about the impending hazards.
A product liability claim is filed when a faulty or defective product results in an accident. Various equipment is used in light and heavy construction sites. The equipment used must be of the safest and quality standards. That’s why if any component malfunctions and causes an accident where you are injured, or someone is killed, a product liability claim may be brought forward against the manufacturer or retailer. For example, if you fell from a height due to a defective ladder, your Texas City construction accident attorney may sue any party in the chain of distribution.
Generally speaking, a worker may not bring a claim directly against their employer if injured while at work. However, he or she is entitled to workers’ compensation regardless of the circumstances surrounding their injuries. All that must be proven is that the injuries were sustained while at work. Workers’ compensation covers lost income for the time not worked and limited medical expenses.
If someone is killed at a construction site, a wrongful death claim compensates the surviving estate for the damages owed to the deceased as well as those suffered by select family members such as parents, guardians, children, and spouses.
