Are You Suffering from a Construction Accident? Call Bill Kennedy Today

You went to work and did everything you were supposed to, just like you always do. You wore the proper gear, followed safety guidelines and did your job for the day. The next thing you know, there has been a construction accident, and what’s worse is you believe it could have been avoided.

You have bills to pay, and you are suffering from not only physical discomfort, but also undue stress and other emotional pain.

Getting Back to the Workplace

Every year, construction accidents seriously injure and sometimes kill a large number of people. Texas law requires that employers have Workers’ Compensation insurance so an injured employee will be compensated in the event of an accident. That means the injured employee is barred from suing his employer for the accident.

 

However, if the employer does not have Workers’ Compensation insurance, then the employee can sue the employer for damages pertaining to his or her injuries. Additionally, an injured employee may have a claim against another contractor or company for negligence.

 

Construction accidents happen, but when it comes to worksites, abiding by OSHA safety guidelines can prevent them in most cases. OSHA cites the following causes of injury and death as the construction industry’s “Fatal Four”:

  1. Falls
  2. Electrocution
  3. Struck by Object
  4. Caught In-Between Hazards

 

In 2014, construction accidents related to these causes resulted in 508 deaths. In total, 4,679 construction workers were killed at work in the same year. The top three most frequently cited OSHA standards violated in 2015 were fall protection, hazard communication and scaffolding requirements. That means there were rules being broken, bosses and contractors knew about them, and they allowed their employees to go to work anyway.

 

You do not deserve to be laid up because of someone else’s oversight surrounding a construction accident.
