Do I Have a Construction Accident Injury Case?

If you are asking yourself this question after a construction accident, the very best way to get the answers you need is to consult our Longview, TX, construction accident attorneys right away. Meanwhile, we have provided some basics regarding construction accidents to help you understand whether you have grounds for legal action:

Texas employers aren't required to carry workers' compensation insurance.

If your employer does carry this insurance, and your construction accident was due to negligence on the part of your employer, a co-worker, or yourself, you likely have grounds for a workers' compensation claim. But if your employer does not carry this insurance, or the injury resulted from negligence on the part of someone who is not directly associated with your employer, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim.

Third-party negligence is usually grounds for a personal injury suit.

Even if your employer carries workers' compensation insurance, they are not responsible for negligence such as a design defect in a power tool, or the actions of a contractor such as an electrician working on your job site. It takes legal expertise to identify negligence on the part of a manufacturer or a contractor. Our construction accident attorneys understand these cases and can identify who is responsible for your losses.
