Hispanic Construction Accident Attorney in Houston Texas

Of all types of work accidents, construction accidents are by far the most prevalent.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (here), there were over 5,333 fatalities in the workplace in 2019.  A worker died every 99 minutes.  Hispanic and Latino workers made up 20% of the fatal injuries during that time.  If the construction company participates in the Texas Workers’ Compensation program, then you cannot sue your employer for damages.  They have to provide for your medical care and to make you whole.  But there are circumstances where you may be able to receive compensation from a third party which contributed to your injuries. 

If you have been seriously injured or one of your loved ones died as a result of a construction accident, contact Attorney Javier Marcos.  He is very experienced in construction accidents and the Texas laws that pertain to them.

What do you do if you have been hurt in a construction accident?

If you have been hurt in a construction accident the first thing you should do is report your accident to your supervisor so that they can document the accident and your injuries.  It is very important that the accident is properly documented.  Seek medical attention for your injuries.  Even if you thing that you do not have any significant injuries, its best that you get medically evaluated so that your injuries can be documented by a medical professional.  You may have injuries or exposures that you are unaware of.  In the case of serious injuries, a doctor will be able to render aid as well as have a record of the severity of your injuries with possible long term effects.  DO NOT talk with the insurance company that represents your employer or give your employer a written statement without consulting an attorney.  Your comments and statements could be used against you.

Contact Attorney Javier as soon as possible.  He will let you know your rights, what you can expect and if you can get further compensation.  Immigration status does not matter.  Attorney Javier Marcos can help you get the compensation you deserve.

Who can be liable in Construction Accidents?

Construction Site Owner – Liability mainly depends on if the site owner has much control over the activities on the property and if they were aware of any hazardous conditions .

General and Sub-Contractors – Under OSHA regulations, these contractors are required to maintain a safe work environment for their workers.  If through negligence or inaction, they caused an accident to occur that led to injuries then they could be held liable.

Architects and Engineers – In some cases, architects and engineers have a duty to observe progress and ensure compliance with plans and relevant code regulations. To determine whether an architect or engineer may be liable for an injury, it is necessary to establish which duties were outlined by their contract with the construction company.

Manufacturers – Any party in the chain of distribution of a defective product, including manufacturers, retailers, and wholesalers, may be held liable if a defect in their product causes an injury.
