Construction Accidents

Construction Accident Lawyers in Corpus Christi

We Help Injured Construction Workers Recover Fair Compensation

Every year, there are hundreds of thousands of construction accidents, with thousands of those claiming workers’ lives. Construction accidents have become so common that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) even has a list of the “fatal four” construction accidents: falls, struck by objects, electrocutions, and caught in equipment.

At Bandas Law Firm, we understand that workplace injuries of this type happen every single day, and we are familiar with Texas rules and regulations that surround construction accident cases. If you or someone you love has been injured at a construction site in Nueces County or anywhere in the state, our Corpus Christi construction accident attorneys may be able to help you pursue fair benefits or compensation.

Contact our offices today at (361) 238-2789 for a free, confidential construction accident consultation.

Complex Liability in Construction Site Accident Claims

When a construction accident does occur and it causes injury or death, the chain of liability can be much more complex than you may have imagined.

There are different parties that could be responsible for the accident, including:

  • The owner of the property
  • The company handling the work
  • The manufacturer of the equipment
  • The company responsible for equipment upkeep

The list could go on. It takes expertise and knowledge to track down the proper chain of liability so the proper parties will be pursued in order to get the compensation victims deserve.

Types of Construction Injury Claims

Depending on the type of accident and the circumstances surrounding it, there are different types of claims. You will need an experienced attorney to help you determine what will be the best claim to make in your own case.

Potential types of construction accident claims include:

  • Workers’ Compensation – If you can get benefits from workers’ compensation, then in most cases, you will not be able to bring a lawsuit against your employer. To pursue a workers’ compensation claim, you will need to prove that the injury is work-related.
  • Personal Injury – In this case, you would need to prove that a third party (not you or your employer) was negligent and this led to your injury.
  • Product Liability – In cases when a defective product led to your injury, it would be someone in the chain of manufacturing and distribution of the product who would be liable for the claim.
  • Wrongful Death – Finally, if a worker is killed in an accident, then family members may have the right to bring a wrongful death claim against the negligent party.

It can be very hard to navigate and determine the best way to make your claim. That’s when the experienced attorneys at Bandas Law Firm step in. We know how to investigate the accident and determine how you should make your claim.

Roofing Accidents

Roofing accidents are a potential type of construction site injury. Victims of roofing accidents most often suffer injuries and/or trauma due to falls or burns from hot tar. In many of these cases, compensation is owed to the worker who suffered the accident, but for that compensation to be paid, the victim of the accident must prove that the circumstances that caused the accident could have been prevented and that all proper steps were taken to ensure their safety.

Cases like this are covered by tort law, which ensures that the wrong done to the victim (in this case, injury due to a roofing accident) will be redressed with monetary compensation for damages. Damages in roofing accident cases may include medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages, as well.

In all tort cases, though, the burden of proof is placed on the victim. If you have been injured in a roofing accident, it is up to you to follow up and prove that negligence on the part of your employer caused the accident in which you were injured. Negligence may be proven in a variety of ways, depending on the type of roofing accident and how it occurred.

Examples of negligence that may lead to a roofing accident or any type of construction accident may include:

  • Unsafe conditions
  • Lack of proper training
  • Lack of proper safety equipment
  • Defective or poorly maintained equipment

OSHA Rights

Thanks to OSHA, you have rights as a construction worker, and OSHA can even help you determine the right way to file a complaint in the case of an accident or injury. Keep in mind that your employer cannot demote or fire you just because you file a complaint, and OSHA is designed to protect this. Of course, you will still need the experience of an attorney to file the claim properly.

Construction accidents happen all too regularly, and they can result in serious injury or death. If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident on a construction site, it is important that you get in contact with Bandas Law Firm as soon as possible so we can get to work for you.
