Construction work can be physically demanding and risky work. Construction workers do their jobs from scaffolding and roofs, where the risk of falling is always present. Heavy machinery introduces risk of electrocution accidents and other potentially severe injuries. In Texas, work on oil rigs introduces the risk of explosions.
Common examples of construction accidents include:
- Crane accidents
- Explosions and burns
- Falls from ladders and roofs
- Holes in floors
- Lifting injuries
- Machinery and equipment defects
- OSHA violations
- Scaffolding collapse
Construction accidents can happen fast in San Antonio. But when a construction accident occurs - from a crane accident on the city's East Side to fire or explosion on an Edgewood construction site - the consequences can last a lifetime. You may sustain permanent injuries. A loved one may have been injured or even lost their lives in an accident. When you've done nothing wrong to cause an accident, you shouldn't have to foot the bill for your injuries alone.
At Herrera Law Firm, we work tirelessly on behalf of construction accident victims working in Texas's second most populous city. We understand accidents can happen on busy construction sites of all varieties and for any number of reasons. Construction sites often involve multiple parties working alongside one another. When another contractor or construction worker's negligence caused your injuries, you may be able to obtain compensation through filing a third-party work claim.
If you were injured in a workplace accident in Texas, it's important to contact The Herrera Law Firm right away to protect your rights. You may not believe you need an attorney. You may believe that the cause of your accident was clear-cut. Don't speak too soon.
