What Qualifies as a Third-Party Construction Site Accident in Austin?

Construction site accidents are some of the most common and devastating injuries that can occur, and an Austin third-party construction accident will often leave a victim with terrible damages and medical costs. Though many assume a third-party accident must include an injured employee, bystanders are equally at risk, and the Austin personal injury attorneys at Carabin Shaw will fight for your maximum compensation.

Construction Zones and Austin City Growth

Construction zones are dangerous spaces for bystanders in any city, though Austin is a unique case. The city has experienced the second-fastest population growth in the country, according to the Austin-American Statesman.

To accommodate its rapidly growing population, residential construction and corporate expansion are booming. StorageCafe even ranks Austin as the third most active city for real-estate development in the country.

Massive growth requires constant city improvement, and any Austin resident can tell you just how frustrating it is that so much of the city is constantly under construction. All of these factors make a third-party injury on construction site in Austin TX far more dangerous than those of other cities. But, in terms of bystanders and pedestrians, what constitutes a third-party construction accident claim?

Examples of Third-Party Construction Accidents in Austin, TX

A third-party accident on a construction site includes any accident that causes the injury of a bystander or pedestrian, so long as the injury was caused by the negligence of another party on the site. Some common examples of a Third-party construction site accident in Texas include:

  • Falling objects

    Construction sites are filled with materials that are on standby until the construction crews need them. If these materials are not properly secured, they can fall from incredible heights.

    This falling debris can destroy cars on the streets below, or even strike unprotected pedestrians, resulting in incredible injuries or worse.

    At Carabin Shaw, our team of trusted attorneys has advocated for victims of negligence for decades, and we are experts at holding at-fault parties accountable for their negligence.

  • Poor signage and obstructed roadways

    Construction sites across Austin are required to post signage in the area, directing pedestrians and cyclists through safe routes that are clearly marked. However, these routes and zones are, more often than not, difficult to navigate and obstructed by construction vehicles or debris.

    A cyclist or pedestrians struck by a construction vehicle due to poor signage has legal grounds to fight for financial compensation, and our attorneys can give you the support you need to do so. Visit our client reviews for examples of our work and dedication.

  • Malfunctioning equipment
