Construction accidents injure and kill thousands of our nation’s workers each year. Due to the inherent dangers of construction, many employed in the construction and building industry find themselves confronted with deadly worksites on a daily basis. Serious building and construction site accidents result in serious personal injuries and wrongful death. Construction site accidents occur across Texas with an alarming frequency.
Even beyond Texas, because construction is the nation’s largest industry, its accidents kill and injure thousands of workers each year. Despite government attempts to regulate the industry and to prevent construction accidents, one out of every 10 construction workers suffers some kind of on-the-job injury.
If an employer subscribes to workplace insurance coverage, a worker will have a bar against a direct lawsuit per the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act.
Even with a workers’ comp bar, in many cases, an injured party can overcome this lawsuit barrier by showing that a third party was at fault. Viable third parties can include property owners, engineers, architects, contractors and subcontractors, electricians, and equipment manufacturers. All of these are potential third party defendants that can be sued and held liable for their own negligence and fault when a construction accident occurs.
