Houston Construction Accident Lawyers

Laborers and tradespeople who work on construction sites are more susceptible to injury than almost any other work group. Construction sites are incredibly dangerous with an extremely high risk of injury and death. These accidents usually occur when there is a lapse in safety procedure or failure to properly monitor a site. It can be difficult to determine who is liable for injuries and deaths of workers.

That is why, if you’re the victim of a construction site injury or your loved one has died on a construction site, you need an experienced Attorney Jose S. Lopez attorney on your side. Your attorney will do a thorough review of evidence, reports, and the construction site itself to determine who is liable and whether or not you have a winning case. Liable parties may include:

  • General or sub-contractor
  • Company
  • Fellow employee

Injury Compensation from a Third Party

If your accident was the result of company negligence you may have rights under worker’s compensation to file against the company directly (vs. the contractor or another employee). Worker’s compensation typically does include payment for:

  • Loss of wages
  • Past and future medical costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Long-term disability
  • Wrongful death

As a victim of company negligence, you deserve compensation for all of the above. Don’t let your company get away with avoiding the necessary compensation you need. Your Attorney Jose S. Lopez attorney will fight to get you the settlement and justice you deserve.
