An injury from the construction worksite will leave you with life-altering injuries on your body and mind. One analysis found that there were 5000 deaths in one recent year in the United States, making the industry one of the most dangerous in the world.
Most common types of construction injuries and accidents
- Hit by an object
- Chemical burns
- Pinned between two objects
The above accidents result in traumatic injuries like brain damage, spinal cord damage, orthopedic injuries, and dislocated joints.
It is prudent that a construction worker puts in place all the proper protocols to ensure they have a safety net in the event of an accident. The investment in legal representation will improve productivity and give you a better life with better healthcare and consistent income.
How we handle workplace injury in Houston
Our injury attorneys in Houston help clients in many different industries acquire healthcare coverage no matter their field of work. The biggest clientele group comesÂ from workplaces like the mind, drilling rigs, factories, grain mills, paper mills, plants, and warehouses. Our job is to make the employer provide answers about the accident and focus on creating a plan that will better your health and maintain other applicable income compensations.
It would help if you got in touch with our team immediately before getting into a negotiation with the employer because accepting the employerâs agreement disqualifies you from filing a lawsuit. The employer may help get you to a hospital, but they should not pursue any financial agreements without the presence of a lawyer. Generally, you have the following options:
- Accept the compensation benefits agreement from the attorney
- File a lawsuit against the employer to get past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering damages, among many more
- Accept workerâs compensation from third party companies that contributed to the injury, including engineers, architects, material manufacturers, or contractors who are managing the project
There is no guarantee that you can quickly pursue compensation from third parties, but you have a better chance of a successful pursuit when you involve an attorney.
