San Antonio Construction Accident Attorney
What Are Your Legal Options After a Construction Accident?
Construction work has long been considered one of the most dangerous occupations
in the United States. That is because workers often deal with heavy machinery,
work from heights, and handle potentially hazardous tools. Without the
proper precautions, like personal protective gear, well-maintained equipment,
and sturdy scaffolding, accidents leading to
serious injury and/or death become much more likely.

Common Causes of Construction Worker Deaths
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA),
4,679 workers were killed on the job in 2014 alone. Approximately one
in five (20 percent) of these deaths were in the construction industry.
Nearly 60 percent of deaths among construction workers can be attributed
to what OSHA calls the “Fatal Four”:
- Struck by object
If it is determined that a construction accident was caused by an employer’s
failure to provide a safe working environment, they can be held liable
for their negligence and be responsible for paying compensatory damages
for medical care, rehabilitation, lost wages, lost earning capacity, and
more. In the case of a worker’s death, a
wrongful death lawsuit may be filed by the victim’s family on their behalf for
compensation for funeral and burial costs, loss of companionship, loss
of income, and more.
