Dallas Construction Accident Lawyers Fighting to Get Clients Compensation
Construction accidents can be debilitating
Construction workers contend with tough working conditions and jobsites that are littered with hazards. A serious accident can happen at any time and leave you with injuries that require costly medical treatment and limit your ability to earn a living.
Matt Lewis Law, P.C. focuses on personal injury, workers compensation and employment law in the Dallas area. If you have been hurt at a construction site, our attorneys are prepared to work hard to get you the compensation you need.
A personal injury can reduce your ability to earn a living
A minor construction-related injury may cause you to miss some work, but a major mishap can permanently limit your ability to work and may require years of medical treatment. While many employers carry workers compensation insurance, others do not. In such cases, your best option may be to file a lawsuit for damages.
Our firm represents clients with such construction injuries as:
- Head trauma — Construction workers are at a high risk of being struck in the head while on the job. The effects of a significant blow to the head can last a lifetime.
- Spinal injuries — An injury to your back or your spinal column can be extremely painful and require years of therapy. Some injuries can leave you with permanent loss of movement. If so, you may need to consider applying for Social Security disability benefits.
- Shoulder injuries — Shoulder strain and damage to your rotator cuff are common in jobs that require heavy lifting. Such injuries often require surgery and rehabilitation. Serious damage to the muscles in your shoulder can affect your future earning ability.
After an accident, your employer may push you to see a doctor who is affiliated with the company, but it is important that you visit an independent doctor who has no connection — or allegiance — to your employer. Our firm practices personal injury, workers compensation and employment law. Speak to us about your legal options if you have suffered an injury at a construction site.
A firm versed in third-party claims
On construction sites, a number of contractors and subcontractors typically are working at the same time in the same area. As a result, if you are injured on the site, you may have claims against multiple parties. Our law firm makes sure that all parties responsible for your injuries are held accountable.
Seek justice after the death of a loved one
On construction sites, long hours under exhausting conditions can have potentially deadly results. The family of a worker who was killed by someone else’s negligence may have grounds for a wrongful death action. Speak to one of our attorneys to learn more about wrongful death in Texas.
