If you or someone you love was injured in a construction accident, you may be eligible for compensation. The party or parties responsible for your accident should be held accountable and this may include paying for your medical bills, lost wages, reduced earning capacity, and other damages associated with your injury. You may also be eligible to receive compensation for noneconomic losses such as pain and suffering.
The Houston construction accident lawyers at Loncar Lyon Jenkins will take the time to understand the details of your accident, and we will work to identify every party that shares in the liability. We will collect evidence and file a compelling claim on your behalf, going after every dollar of economic and noneconomic damages you have incurred. Our attorneys work on a no-win-no-fee basis, meaning we get paid only when you do.

Construction Site Injuries in Houston
Construction sites are full of hazards, and if you work on one for long enough, you are bound to rack up an injury or two. But if your injury is so severe it requires medical care or time away from work, you should take action against the responsible party or parties so that you do not have to bear the costs of your injury yourself.
The Houston construction accident lawyers at Loncar Lyon Jenkins have helped many victims in Texas recover compensation after getting hurt on the job. Depending on how your construction site injury happened and who was responsible, we may pursue one or more of several avenues when it comes to recovering damages. We may file a workers’ compensation claim with your employer (or help you overturn a denial), file a private lawsuit against a non-employer third party, or both.
We can help you regardless of how your injury occurred. Call Loncar Lyon Jenkins if you were injured by any of the following:
Heavy Equipment Injuries
Heavy equipment is a common source of severe injury on construction sites. If you were injured by a crane, backhoe, pulley, or any other piece of construction equipment, we can determine where the fault lies and go after the liable parties. In addition to a workers’ compensation claim with your employer, you may be eligible to file a private claim against the equipment manufacturer or the job site owner.
Even a hard hat is not always enough to protect you from a heavy object that falls from far overhead. If you were struck by a falling object and suffered a head injury, spinal trauma, or any type of severe bodily injury while on a construction site, we may be able to help you recover compensation.
Slip and Fall
A slip and fall can happen at any workplace, from an accounting office to a military battlefield. But construction workers are especially vulnerable due to the pace of the job and the number of potential hazards that surround them at work. We can fight to recover full compensation for your slip-and-fall construction site injury.
Fall From High Places
An additional factor that makes construction work dangerous is the requirement of working on precarious perches that are often several stories above the ground. If you got hurt after falling from a high place on a construction site, we can help you recover damages based on the facts of your case.
If your construction site injury was the result of someone else’s reckless or negligent behavior, we may be able to help you pursue that party for compensation in addition to the work comp awards you may qualify to receive. Speak to a member of our team today by calling 800-777-7777 for a free case evaluation.

Workers’ Compensation vs. Private Lawsuit
After a construction site injury, you may be eligible to recover two forms of damages – workers’ compensation from your employer and a private settlement from a third party that we determine is liable for your injury. When we evaluate your case, we will let you know if you are eligible for one or both of these forms of compensation. Once you decide to move forward, we will pursue all necessary measures.

The Statute of Limitations
Both private lawsuits and workers’ compensation claims have limits of personal action, which means you do not have unlimited time to take legal action. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may have two years or even less. The clock starts running right away. It is better to speak with a lawyer and get the ball rolling sooner rather than later, as by waiting you may risk not only running into issues with the statute but also the potential loss of viable evidence.
