Injured in a construction accident in Houston?
Have you or a loved one suffered injuries or died in a construction accident? If so, you should contact a personal injury lawyer in Houston, even if you are covered by workers’ compensation insurance. When your accident was caused by the negligence or recklessness of another, you may be entitled to additional compensation. Workers’ compensation insurance may not fully cover the expenses incurred due to your injury. At Mukerji Law Firm, our attorneys are well versed in handling these types of claims. If you are deserving of more compensation, and there is the possibility of pursuing more from a third party, we aggressively pursue the liable party.
Sites where construction is underway are very dangerous, and construction accidents can happen in a variety of ways. Heavy objects and equipment can fall from heights; forklifts and cranes can fall over or crash into structures; welding equipment can set fires; materials can be tripped over, and many others. In some cases the injuries are minor, but in other tragic accidents the result is catastrophic injuries and astronomical medical bills, lengthy rehabilitation therapy, possible lifelong medical treatment, loss of wages or the ability to ever work again, and wrongful death.
Unfortunately, many of these accidents are the result of negligence, a failure to adhere to safety regulations, maintenance failures and poor management decisions and the absence of routine communications. When any of these or other behaviors or protocols can be shown to have caused or opened the door to someone being injured or killed, then the responsible party must be held accountable.
