If you have been seriously injured due to the negligence of another in a construction accident, you should get in touch with a Texas Workers' Compensation attorney to determine if you have a claim worth pursuing. You may be able to collect compensation to pay for your medical bills and lost wages.
Serious Injuries Caused By Construction Accidents
Common construction injuries include:
- Broken bones or sprains from falls (from roofs, scaffolding, elevator shafts, etc.);
- electrical shocks/electrocution; and
- lacerations from defective tools and equipment (including hoists, conveyors, derricks, scrapers and tractors).
More serious injuries, such as paralysis and death also can occur, depending on the severity of the injury and accident. If you have suffered any serious type of injury that will leave you out of work, an attorney can help you prove your case by gathering the necessary paperwork.
