Construction Accident Injury Lawyers in Houston

In such a thriving and growing city as Houston, it’s no surprise to see construction sites dotted everywhere. It’s a major employer, accounting for around eight percent of the working population here.

Unfortunately, with any construction site comes a high risk of accidents. No matter the precautions taken and safety-first policies introduced, accidents still occur and workers get injured. Many accidents on construction sites are serious, as you might expect from the nature of the work.

Many accidents are avoidable and, sometimes, long hours and unsafe conditions are contributing factors to injuries, leading to workers comp claims or even lawsuits.

Construction companies and contractors should have rigid safety policies in place for their workers but unfortunately, that’s often not the case.

If you are injured on a construction site, trying to get fair compensation for your injuries, and unsure who can be held liable, the team at DeHoyos Law Firm, PLLC can provide the help, support, and legal assistance you need at this tough time.

    What are the most common types of construction accidents in Houston?

    Construction accident injuries, by the very nature of the working environment, are often very serious and can be fatal or near-fatal.

    Around 20 percent of work-related deaths occur on construction sites according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The devastating effects for workers and their families need little introduction.

    Accidents often involve heavy machinery or working at great heights. The most common injuries include:

    How are construction accidents caused?

    Most accidents on construction sites are preventable. This does not make it any easier for the families concerned.

    However, if unsafe conditions, inadequate safety equipment/protocols, or negligence from the construction company contributed to the accident and your injuries, you may have a stronger compensation claim.

    Most commonly, we see the following causes of accidents on Houston construction sites:

    After my hit and run I was referred to Mr. DeHoyos, and at first I didn't want to hire a lawyer to go up against my own... insurance. After some family convincing and research on Mr. DeHoyos I made the call. I am glad that I did. His office staff and himself were wonderful. They took care of everything from the start. Any time I had a question either his staff or himself reached out to me. I never had to wait long to have any questions answered. At one point there was an issue with an appointment and Mr. DeHoyos tried to rectify the problem himself. When I had the pleasure of speaking with him, he never made it sound like I was an inconvenience to him. They kept me well informed of the next step in the process as we went along. In the end I got more than I expected in my pocket! I can't thank him or his office staff enough for everything they did for me. In one of the worst times I've had his staff and himself were there for me.read more

    What to do if you’ve been involved in a car accident in Houston?

    The hard-working construction crews of Houston have a right to expect a safe and secure work environment. They should be able to expect to go home to their families in the evening rather than having them visit a hospital or worse, a morgue.

    Yet, across the US, around 1,000 employees die from construction accidents every year. One in five on-the-job deaths is in construction despite the sector only having one in thirteen of the nation’s workers.

    Many thousands more sustain severe but non-fatal injuries.

    Claiming compensation can be complex, often involving and OSHA investigation as well as workers compensation and negligence issues.

    It’s extremely challenging for victims and their families to handle these issues while a loved one is badly injured and the financial pressures are mounting.

    Who is liable for construction accidents in Houston, TX?

    Every employee in Texas – regardless of the industry – is entitled to a safe workplace.

    Employers owe their workers a duty of care so that preventable accidents are avoided. In the case of construction sites, danger and risk are part of life but this does not release the construction company from its duty of care.

    Construction companies must be more vigilant and take extra measures to ensure the safety and security of the workforce.

    For instance, safety training must be a priority. Following industry standards and regulations and performing regular checks/maintenance of equipment and machinery must be performed to the letter.

    Workers’ comp and suing an employer in Houston

    If you suffer an injury while working on a construction site, you will need to file a claim through workers’ comp benefits. These benefits protect employers in Houston from liability in personal injury lawsuits so you cannot sue your employer if you are covered by workers’ comp.

    However, a third party may be at fault for a construction site accident, such as one of the following parties:

    In such cases, it’s best to discuss your options with a Houston construction accident lawyer, who will determine if you have a valid case and help you file a lawsuit against them if you do.
