If you were injured or a loved one was injured or killed in a residential or commercial construction accident, you could be entitled to financial compensation. With the help of your construction accident lawyer, you might be able to hold the Dallas construction company financially responsible for the cost of your injuries.
When the negligence or recklessness of the construction company or its employees led to your injuries, you could be eligible to receive financial recovery. This award would cover the costs of your economic and non-economic damages caused by the construction accident.
We Can Negotiate a Settlement After a Construction Accident
In some personal injury cases, the at-fault construction company’s insurer might offer you a speedy financial settlement. A speedy settlement might not take future expenses into account, such as future medical care and lost earning capacity.
Whether you are negotiating an insurance settlement on your own or with a lawyer by your side, the choice of accepting or declining a settlement offer is always up to you. Your lawyer can act as your advocate, though. They will help you understand the full value of your construction accident claim.
Your lawyer can also help ensure nothing is missed or overlooked in calculating the true value of your claim. Our goal at Loncar Lyon Jenkins is to ensure your claim is not undervalued and that you do not end up without the full financial coverage to which you are entitled.

How Your Accident Could Have Occurred
Many construction site accidents are the result of failure to comply with OSHA regulations about workplace safety. Others stem from failures and defects in the equipment used on-site. Still, others are the result of poor training of laborers by subcontractors.
Construction sites are among the most dangerous places to work. Accidents happen every day because of carelessness and negligence by workers, subcontractors, and suppliers. Oil platforms, gas pipelines, and building sites are often in the news because of catastrophic accidents.
Construction Site Injuries and Types that Could Entitle You an Award
Construction sites are full of potential dangers. OSHA employs inspectors who are responsible for ensuring worker safety on construction sites. Construction site accidents do happen, though.
2018 OSHA statistics report the following four primary types of construction site injuries:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Being struck by an object
- Being caught in or between equipment or other objects
