Allow us to handle your case while you concentrate on your recovery. We operate on a contingency-fee basis with no advanced payment necessary.
We Will Pursue Compensation in Your Case
We at Loncar Lyon Jenkins may be able to investigate your accident and determine who is liable for your injuries. We can apply our understanding of Texas law and Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) regulations as we examine your case.
Our Team Will Secure Evidence to Support Your Testimony
We can also gather evidence to demonstrate the at-fault party’s liability, such as:
- Photos and video from the accident or of your injuries
- Police or accident reports, if available
- Witness statements
- Testimony from accident reconstruction and safety experts
- Safety records from the job site
- Your medical records
Once we have identified the liable party and built your case, Loncar Lyon Jenkins can enter into settlement negotiations with the insurance company. If they are not willing to give you a fair settlement offer, we can take your case to trial. At this point, a judge or jury could determine liability for your injuries and how much compensation the responsible party could owe you.

Construction Accidents in Fort Worth
There are many ways a construction worker may sustain injuries. Some common causes of construction accidents include:
Heavy Equipment Accidents
If you were hurt using a piece of heavy equipment on a construction site, you might be eligible to file a claim against the equipment manufacturer.
Falling objects are common hazards on construction sites. That is why workers may be required to wear hard hats at all times on the job. Unfortunately, even a hard hat is not always enough to prevent a severe or catastrophic injury when a worker is struck by a heavy enough object or falls from high enough to injure them.
Slip and Fall Injuries
A slip and fall can happen at any job, but they may be more common at construction sites. This is because the ground is often unsteady, and hard-to-see hazards are ever-present.
Falls From High Places
If you fell on a construction site while working from a high place, we can determine whose fault the injury was and work to hold that party accountable.
Being Crushed By or Between Objects
Without proper safety protocols, a construction worker may be crushed by or between objects on a job site.
Construction workers may suffer electrocution from the construction site’s electrical system, power lines, power tools, or other electrical hazards.
Exposure to hazardous chemicals at a job site could injure construction workers.
These are not the only ways a construction worker can be injured. If a construction accident injured you, and you believe another party’s negligence was to blame, we can take on your case.

Identifying the Liable Party in Your Case
The liable party in your construction accident may depend on whose negligence caused your injury. This could be:
- A job site owner
- A contractor or subcontractor
- An equipment manager
- A product manufacturer
- Another negligent party
The Statute of Limitations on Your Case
The statute of limitations is generally two years in Texas on most personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits, according to Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003. If you allow the time frame to expire, you could lose your right to compensation via a lawsuit.
Your lawyer can help you determine which specific deadlines apply to your case.

Our past clients have said the following about our services:

How We Have Our Clients Pay Us
Because we work on a contingency-fee basis, our clients pay nothing upfront. We do not collect attorney’s fees unless and until our clients recover compensation from a settlement offer or court award.
Other firms might require you to pay by the hour or in a lump sum payment at the beginning. We do not ask this because we know how much financial pressure you could be under right now. Handling life after an accident is expensive enough. Paying for a lawyer shouldn’t complicate things further.
What You Should Avoid Saying After the Accident
After you sustain an injury, you might be tempted to take the blame and assure others that you’re fine. Doing so can jeopardize your claim to damages, though. The eyewitnesses might remember you saying that you were uninjured, and the insurance companies will use this against you.
You should also avoid giving too much information to the insurers about how you think you became injured. You only need to tell them the facts. Let us investigate and prove your injuries.
