We Can Help You No Matter How Your Construction Accident Occurred
There are endless ways to get hurt on a construction site. No matter how your injury occurred, we are here to help you recover compensation from the responsible party or parties.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has a list called the “fatal four,” which are the most frequently occurring types of work injuries. The organization notes that one out of every five worker deaths are due to injuries suffered while working on a construction site.
The “fatal four” include:
- Being struck by an object
- Caught-in/between pieces of machinery
In many situations, unless you were under the influence or exhibited gross negligence, you can recover workers’ compensation benefits. However, let’s say that, for example, while working on a construction site, you were electrocuted by a faulty power tool. In this situation, not only could you file for workers’ compensation, but you could also file a product liability claim against the party who manufactured the tool.
Your Tyler construction accident lawyers want to leave no stone unturned when it comes to helping you recover monetary compensation. If you were performing your job within the scope of your duties and still suffered an injury, we want to represent you. Reach out to our team today.
