Construction Accident Victims Have Rights
Commercial, residential, industrial and roadway construction projects are commonplace in today’s ever-changing world; and, as a result, construction accidents have increased exponentially. Thousands of people fall victim to construction accidents each year, sustaining injuries that may result in long recovery, loss of wages, and even permanent changes in lifestyle.
If you have suffered injuries in a construction accident, you may be entitled to compensation according to the law. Our Austin lawyers skilled in this area of practice can assess your case and represent your interests if your case proves to have legal merit.
At The Sharp Firm, our husband and wife legal team has been representing Texans hurt in construction accidents since 1992. Each attorney in our firm has more than 20 years of experience in litigation and appeals and expertise in handling cases related to construction accidents. Each of our attorneys also holds an AV® rating from Martindale-Hubbell - an independent firm that rates legal professionals based on peer input. Coveted by legal professionals, the AV® rating is the organization’s highest honor and one that we are proud to have achieved.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, more than 230 worker deaths in 2008 were attributed to construction accidents. And while deaths are not common, injuries occur all too often. When construction accidents occur due to the negligence or carelessness of others, those who sustain injuries may be entitled to compensation for:
- Medical and hospital-related expenses.
- Loss of income.
- Pain and suffering.
Further, if construction accidents result in the death of their loved one, their estate and family members may be entitled to compensation for:
- Medical expenses.
- Funeral expenses.
- Loss of companionship.
- Any pain and suffering and mental anguish suffered before your loved one’s wrongful death.
An experienced lawyer can help victims determine their rights under the law, representing them throughout the legal process. We can also handle any necessary probate process for the estate of your loved one.
