If you were injured while working on a construction site, you can seek compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and even pain and suffering. Similarly, if you were injured by a third party while you were on a construction site (even if you were not an employee), you can also seek compensation for your losses.
Our construction accident lawyer serving Garland can assess your case, identify the liable parties, and pursue an award for your injuries. We can help you with an insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit. If you lost a loved one due to this type of accident, we can also help you file a wrongful death case.
Compensation that May Be Available to You
When you suffer injuries on a construction site, you could easily face extensive medical bills and other losses. We can help you calculate your damages to ensure you are seeking an award that will fairly cover these costs.
You may pursue compensation for:
- Hospital bills
- Home aids
- Rehabilitative care
- Doctor’s appointments
- Lost income
- Reduced earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of quality of life
Depending on the extent of your injuries and how they affect your future, you may qualify for other damages not listed here. If you lost a loved one to their injuries after a construction accident, you could also seek a recovery for any funeral or burial costs, your loved one’s final medical expenses, and more.
A lawyer with our firm can make sure you seek what you deserve.

Different Options for Seeking Compensation
Different options exist for pursuing compensation after a construction accident in Garland. A lawyer from our team can help you understand more about the following:
When you are injured on the job, you may start by pursuing compensation through a workers’ compensation claim, according to the Texas Department of Insurance. This type of claim will generally cover your medical bills and a percentage of your wages. It does not allow you to collect compensation for non-economic losses, such as pain and suffering.
We can tell you if your claim is best suited for a workers’ comp claim or a personal injury claim or lawsuit. If your case merits an insurance claim or lawsuit, we can help you pursue those options.
An Insurance Claim with the Liable Party’s Provider
Even if you were not an employee of the company conducting the construction, you can still file an insurance claim with the liable party. You may have been injured as a subcontractor or a pedestrian, for example. You may have experienced a construction accident while you were driving.
We can assess your potential claim and identify who the liable party was. We can also handle all the paperwork associated with pursuing a claim.
Personal Injury Lawsuit
If we cannot get fair compensation through an insurance claim, we can then file a personal injury lawsuit. Even if you receive a settlement offer, we do not recommend that you accept it if it will not fairly compensate you for your future losses.
We can represent you in a trial, whether we have to go before a judge or jury. When we do this, you may receive a court-awarded offer.
Wrongful Death Lawsuit
If you lost a loved one due to their injuries from a construction accident in Garland, a lawyer from our team can also help you take legal action. In this situation, we would pursue a wrongful death lawsuit to go after your damages. This lawsuit may cover the medical expenses associated with the injuries before your loved one passed, as well as burial and funeral expenses.
