Injured in a Houston Construction Accident? Seek Justice with Our Legal Team
According to Houston construction accident law and Texas state’s Civil Practice and Remedies Code, a third-party liability claim provides injured construction workers with opportunity to pursue Texas construction accident claims against entities that are not their employer. These entities can include negligent property owners, producers of faulty equipment, and other potentially at-fault parties. Notably, the Texas labor code also states that these third-party claims can be pursued alongside workers’ compensation.
If an entity or individual other than you is at fault for causing your at-work injuries, Houston personal injury lawyers at Carabin Shaw will represent you in your third-party construction injury lawsuit. Hiring an experienced Houston personal injury attorney means a significantly better chance of winning the full settlement that you need to cover the damages you sustained in your accident.Seeking Guidance After a Construction Accident
Seeking justice after a construction accident is, all too often, an overwhelming and complex process. Adding a third-party claim on top of a workers’ comp claim, in particular, may be more stress than an injured victim has the bandwidth to take on. However, with ten fatalities reported by the Occupational Safety and Health administration this year alone, the rate of injuries that workers sustain is not improving.
After your injury, you may find yourself wading through pooling medical costs, lost work hours, and incredible uncertainty regarding your immediate and long-term health and financial security. A Houston construction accident attorney with Carabin Shaw can help to lighten your load by taking on the process of building your case and helping to file your claim.
Our expert lawyers will investigate your accident, help to identify any entities that may be liable for your injuries and damages, and make sure that insurance companies do not try to get away with offering you a smaller settlement than you deserve. If you were injured while working to expand Houston and better its economy, our team believes that you are entitled to the time and resources you need to recover from your injuries.When Can You File a Third-Party Claim?
A third-party entity can be held liable for your damages if they are involved with creating unsafe environments (such as removing safety guards and signs from equipment and dangerous areas), or if they allow those unsafe conditions to exist on site. Legal representation for construction accident victims can hold negligent third-party entities liable for the victim’s lost wages, pain and suffering, medical expenses, and other costs incurred by the accident. These third parties can include:
- Equipment or tool manufacturers
- Property owners
- Delivery companies
- Or any other individuals or businesses that were present or had a hand in causing your injuries
