Please note: The Herrera Law Firm does not accept workers’ compensation cases but does handle third-party claims related to workers’ compensation. If you were injured in a construction accident, you may be able to pursue compensation from someone other than your employer.
Construction work can be physically demanding and risky work. Construction workers do their jobs from scaffolding and on roofs, where the risk of falling is always present. Heavy machinery introduces risk of electrocution accidents and other potentially dangerous situations. 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
In many cases, these types of work accidents occur because of the reckless or negligent behavior of people working for other construction companies. If this happened to you, you might think you don’t have any way to get the compensation you rightfully deserve. Or perhaps you think that all you have to do is tell your employer and they’ll take care of everything.
The reality is construction accidents are much more complicated than many people probably realize. That’s why it’s critical that you contact our law firm immediately. We have decades of experience successfully obtaining compensation for injured victims and their families. That’s why we’re eager to meet with you.
How we help San Antonio construction accident victims
Construction accidents can happen fast in San Antonio. 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. 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 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 by filing a third-party work injury claim.
How we help construction accident victims in Texas
If you were injured in a work accident in Texas, it’s important to contact the Herrera Law Firm right away to protect your rights. You may not think you need an attorney. You may believe that the cause of your work injury was clear-cut. The reality is most construction accidents turn out to be very complicated, especially if the person who caused your accident works for another company.
Even tracking down the reckless worker or the company they work for can be a challenge. When you do, many negligent workers and companies deny doing anything wrong. That’s why it’s critical you contact our law firm as soon as possible.
We can investigate your construction accident and make sure the person or company responsible for your injury is held responsible. Unlike injuries caused by co-workers, different rules apply in Texas to construction accidents caused by people working for a different company. We know the rules and know how to get results.
