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 a Dallas construction accident lawyer, you might be able to hold the 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 a financial recovery. This award would cover the costs of your economic and non-economic damages caused by the accident. In addition, our attorneys provide complimentary initial case reviews and consultations for victims of construction accidents in Dallas and nearby areas.
We Can Negotiate a Settlement After a Construction Accident
The at-fault construction company’s insurer might offer you a speedy financial settlement in your personal injury case. However, a quick settlement might not consider future expenses, such as future medical care and lost earning capacity. For this reason, it is imperative that you speak with a construction accident attorney in Dallas before making any agreements in your case.
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. This ensures you have the money you need to pay your related bills today and in the future.
Your attorney can also help ensure nothing is missed or overlooked in calculating the actual value of your claim. Our goal 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. We will fight for a fair settlement in your case if we represent you in your claim or construction accident lawsuit.
Other Ways We are Prepared to Help You

- File paperwork
- Cover court costs until you get your award
- Help you stay within the statute of limitations
- Communicate with the other party’s lawyers

Damages You Could Recover Through Your Construction Accident Case
In addition to potentially high medical expenses, you could also be eligible to recover additional financial expenses and losses, including:
- Current lost income
- Loss of earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Physical disfigurement
- Physical disability
It is important to understand that these damages include current bills and losses, future related costs, and even non-economic (intangible) damages. By their very nature, intangible damages are especially difficult to value. Our legal team has extensive experience with these cases and understands the conventions used by the courts, insurers, and others to put a price on non-economic damages.
Your lawyer can help you explore your financial compensation options, start preparing a claim for economic recovery against the at-fault party and assign a value to your claim for compensation.
Your Injuries Could Entitle You to an Award
A residential or commercial construction site can pose significant hazards that leave accident victims with serious, sometimes life-threatening, injuries. In addition, if you or a family member was injured on a construction site, you could have a right to financial recovery from the construction company.
Whether you have suffered amputation, multiple fractures, or a closed head injury, you need help and the means to move forward with your life. Our lawyers will work hard to obtain what you need.
We Can Help You Pursue Wrongful Death Damages
Your loved one’s passing caused by another person’s negligence could entitle your family to damages. You could recover an award for:
- Your loved one’s medical bills from before their passing
- Your mental anguish
- Your loved one’s pain and suffering
- Burial and funeral costs
- Loss of support
- Loss of consortium and guidance
Your construction accident attorney will identify all available sources for compensation and seek the damages you and your family deserve based on the facts of the case.
Seek Immediate Compensation After a Construction Accident in Dallas
Residential and commercial construction sites can be extremely dangerous places for the men and women who work on them and for ordinary citizens in their vicinity. In addition, if you or a family member were injured, you could have the basis for financial recovery from an insurance claim or lawsuit.
You might have sustained injury:
- In or near a construction site by falling debris
- Due to a construction truck
- Because of faulty equipment
- Through a construction worker mishap
Know What to Do After a Construction Site Accident
We are here to help if you or someone you love was injured in a construction accident. We are also prepared to help you and your family if you lost a loved one due to a construction accident.
First and foremost, you must seek emergency medical care immediately after the accident. You should also follow your healthcare team’s instructions for follow-up care until you are as fully recovered as possible. Depending on your injuries, you might require long-term health care, physical therapy, or occupational therapy. You might also find yourself unable to return to work or discover that you are temporarily or permanently unable to manage your daily personal needs.
In addition to getting healthcare, consider hiring a law firm to represent you in a claim for compensation against the at-fault construction company. Loncar Lyon Jenkins cannot file your claim until you reach your maximum recovery or your prognosis and ongoing medical needs are known. Still, we can begin building the case to support your claim today.
As long as your injuries are stable—or your loved one is too injured to call on their own—you can reach out to us today to get started.
Recovering From the Financial Impact of a Construction Accident
The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) Workplace Safety and Health Requirements require employers to maintain safe workplaces and comply with OSHA safety standards.
If you or a member of your family was involved in an accident on a construction site and you believe a violation of OSHA safety regulations played a role in your resulting injuries, do not worry. You could have the basis for an insurance claim or lawsuit to compensate you for your medical and other expenses.
There may be other reasons why a visitor to a construction site or someone else nearby suffered injuries. For example, property owners, contractors, and others may be legally responsible for the injuries and damages incurred. As a result, we may be able to help you build a claim against them and hold them legally responsible for your bills, financial losses, and more.

How Long Do I Have to File a Construction Accident Lawsuit?
In Texas, you generally have two years under Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003 to file a lawsuit. If you fail to do this, the court could throw your case out without even hearing your testimony. As a result, you would lose all claims to compensation.
Sometimes, there are exceptions to these deadlines. For example, you could have more or less time based on the circumstances of your accident. We will research your case to determine the relevant timelines.
How Your Accident at a Construction Site Could Have Occurred
Many construction site accidents result from failure to comply with OSHA regulations for 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 or visit. 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.
You might not have the same protections as a guest if you were hurt while trespassing on the property. However, property owners and others owe even trespassers a duty of care, so you could still have a case. The best way to find out is to let us review the facts of your construction accident claim during a free consultation.
Construction Site Injuries and Types that Could Entitle You to 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
In addition, accidents involving motor vehicles and heavy machinery are also common. Our attorneys know how to navigate claims based on these injuries. If you or a family member was a worker, visitor, or passerby who was injured on or near a construction site, our legal team might be able to help you receive financial compensation for your injuries.
