Tom Rhodes Law Firm P.C. We Speak up for Those Who Cannot Speak for Themselves

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.

Pursuing Compensation for Construction Accident Fatalities

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”:

  • Falls
  • Electrocutions
  • Struck by object
  • Caught-in/between

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.
