Understanding Construction Accident Compensation

Construction is one of the most dangerous industries to work in. Injuries can happen in many ways, from falls and falling objects to electrocutions and caught-between accidents.

When you cannot work after a serious construction injury, the financial stress can feel overwhelming. You may be wondering how much compensation you can receive and what types of damages you can claim.

While every case is unique, in general, construction accident victims in Texas may recover money for:

  • Current and future medical expenses related to the injury
  • Lost wages for time missed from work
  • Reduced future earning capacity if you can’t return to construction work
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Mental and emotional distress
  • Disfigurement and scarring
  • Long-term disability
  • Decreased quality of life

In rare cases involving gross negligence, you may also be awarded punitive damages to punish the wrongdoer and send a message that the court will not tolerate such reckless behavior.

Sadly, some construction accidents are fatal. If you lose a family member, no amount of money can undo that loss.

But you might file a wrongful death claim to recover compensation for:

  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Final medical expenses
  • Loss of the deceased’s income and benefits
  • Loss of inheritance
  • The deceased’s pain and suffering before passing
  • Loss of love, guidance, and companionship

While a legal claim can’t change what happened, it can provide financial relief and a sense of justice during a devastating time. Our compassionate Dallas construction death attorneys are here to guide you through this process with the sensitivity and respect you deserve.

What Is the Value of My Dallas Construction Accident Case?

The value of your case will depend on:

  • The severity of your injuries
  • The total cost of your medical treatment
  • How much work you’ve missed and will miss in the future
  • Your past and future pain and suffering
  • Whether you’ve been left with a permanent impairment or disability
  • The circumstances of the accident and who was at fault
  • The amount of applicable insurance coverage

Because every construction accident case is so fact-specific, the best way to get an idea of what your claim may be worth is to speak with an experienced attorney.

At your free consultation, we’ll go over the details of your accident and injuries to give you a ballpark estimate of your case value and explain your legal options for seeking maximum compensation.

Where Construction Accidents Happen in Dallas

The Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington metroplex is one of the fastest-growing areas in the nation. New construction and development is booming across North Texas. Unfortunately, with all of this construction work comes an increased risk of worker injuries.

Some of the most common locations for construction accidents in Dallas include:

  • Downtown Dallas: The city’s central business district is seeing a surge of new development, with multiple office towers, hotels, and apartment high-rises under construction. Notable projects include The Link at Uptown, Parkside Uptown, 2000 Ross, Hall Arts Residences, and more.
  • Uptown Dallas: Just north of downtown, Uptown is one of Dallas’s hottest neighborhoods, with numerous residential and mixed-use projects in the works. Major construction sites include The Union Dallas, M-Line Tower, The Quad, and McKinney & Olive.
  • North Dallas: The area north of LBJ Freeway/I-635 is a hub for corporate campuses and upscale residential communities. Significant projects underway include the Headquarters at Cypress Waters, Legacy Central, and the Midtown Park redevelopment.
  • Plano: This rapidly growing suburb is home to many corporate offices and new housing developments. Notable construction projects include Legacy West, the JPMorgan Chase campus, and the Heritage Creekside mixed-use development.
  • Frisco: One of the fastest-growing cities in the country, Frisco is seeing a boom in residential, retail, and office construction. Major projects include Frisco Station, The Gate, The Star, and Wade Park.

Of course, construction accidents can happen on any job site, no matter how big or small. Anytime safety is not made a top priority, workers risk serious and potentially life-altering harm.

Common Types of Dallas Construction Accidents

Construction work often involves working at heights, operating heavy machinery, using power tools, and handling hazardous materials. With so many potential dangers, it’s no surprise that construction consistently ranks as one of the most injury-prone occupations.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has identified the “Fatal Four” leading causes of construction worker fatalities:

  1. Falls
  2. Struck by Object
  3. Electrocutions
  4. Caught-in/between

While not always deadly, these types of accidents frequently cause devastating injuries.

In addition to the Fatal Four, other common construction accidents include:

  • Scaffolding collapses
  • Crane accidents
  • Forklift accidents
  • Fires and explosions
  • Trench collapses
  • Welding accidents
  • Chemical burns
  • Overexertion
  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Heat stroke
  • Vehicle collisions

No matter what type of construction accident injured you, if someone else’s negligence caused it, you deserve compensation. The knowledgeable Dallas construction injury lawyers at DFW Injury Lawyers can analyze your case and determine who may be held liable.

Taking on the Insurance Companies After an Accident

Construction accident injury claims are very complex, often involving multiple negligent parties and insurance companies. Insurers are notorious for using sneaky tactics to reduce the value of these claims, such as:

  • Forcing you to give a recorded statement and twisting your words against you
  • Pressuring you to accept an unfairly low settlement offer
  • Claiming your injuries are pre-existing or not that serious
  • Arguing that you were fully or partially at fault for the accident
  • Delaying your claim with endless requests for paperwork
  • Canceling or limiting your coverage

Insurance adjusters may act sympathetic, but make no mistake – their goal is to protect their employer’s bottom line, not to pay you fairly. Before speaking with the insurance company, contact an attorney who can level the playing field and fight for your rights.

At DFW Injury Lawyers, we’ve spent decades going head-to-head with big insurers on behalf of injured Texans. We know all of their underhanded tactics and how to counter them.

Let us handle the aggressive insurance adjusters and endless paperwork while you focus on healing. We won’t let them lowball you or string you along – we’ll work efficiently to resolve your case for maximum value.

What to Do After a Dallas Construction Accident

The actions you take after a construction accident can have a significant impact on your health and your legal claim.

To protect yourself and your rights:

  1. Report the accident to your employer right away
  2. Get medical attention as soon as possible
  3. Follow all of your doctor’s treatment recommendations
  4. Order a copy of the accident report from OSHA
  5. Keep track of all injury-related expenses and mileage
  6. Start a pain journal documenting your day-to-day symptoms and limitations
  7. Do NOT give a recorded statement to the insurance company
  8. Do NOT post about the accident or your injuries on any of your social media pages
  9. Contact an experienced Dallas construction accident attorney
