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.

For example, you may pursue compensation for:

  • Hospital bills: If you had to go to the hospital because of your injuries, you can include any out-of-pocket costs you incurred because you received care in the emergency room, rode in an ambulance, had surgery, or underwent diagnostic testing.
  • Home aides: If your injuries are severe enough to where you require in-home aides, you can include those costs in your claim. This includes expenses for any home healthcare, nursing care services, or personal care services you require in your home.
  • Rehabilitative care: You could receive compensation for rehabilitative care, such as physical therapy or occupational therapy.
  • Medications: Many people who have sustained severe injuries may require medications to manage pain or fight infections. Any out-of-pocket costs you had to pay related to your injuries can be included in your claim.
  • Doctor’s appointments: Any out-of-pocket costs for current, ongoing, and future doctors visits can be included in your claim.
  • Lost income: If your injuries caused you to be out of work, you can include lost income in your claim. The recovery process varies based on the severity of your injuries. You could also recover for future lost income if you are still recovering.
  • Reduced earning capacity: You may be entitled to receive compensation for reduced earning capacity if you cannot return to work in the same capacity or if you can’t return to work at all. This also includes any retirement benefits or healthcare benefits you lose if you are out of work.
  • Pain and suffering: If you endured any pain, anguish, inconvenience, or discomfort because of your injuries, you could receive damages for pain and suffering.
  • Loss of consortium: If your loved one passed away because of their injuries, you could be entitled to receive compensation for loss of consortium. This is the loss of companionship or support you lost when your loved one passed away.
  • Loss of quality of life: If your injuries are severe enough to where you can no longer enjoy activities you used to love, you can include loss of quality of life damages to your claim.

The guidance and patience exhibited by Attorney LaRue and his team were paramount in the successful navigation of this event for my family and I. In a perfect world I won't have to ring his phone anytime soon, but should the Truck of Life dump on me again, I wouldn't hesitate to dial them up.

How to Pursue Compensation After a Construction Accident

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:

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.

Statute Of Limitations in Texas

If we take legal action on your behalf, you should know that we do not have an unlimited amount of time to do so. This is why we suggest reaching out to us as soon as possible. We want to give your case as much time as possible if negotiations with insurers fall through.

According to Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003, you only have two years from the date of the accident or the death of your loved one to file a lawsuit. This is a short deadline, and you will want to give your case the time it deserves.

In rare cases, some exceptions to this deadline may apply. You can find out how it relates to your specific case when you work with our construction accident lawyer.
