Common Construction Site Injuries

Construction sites are inherently risky, with dangers lurking around every corner. From perilous heights to hazardous machinery, workers navigate through an environment where accidents can occur at any time. As Dallas construction accident attorneys, our team is well-equipped to handle cases involving a range of construction-related injuries, such as:

  • Falls: Falling from scaffolding, ladders, or upper levels is a common cause of severe injury or fatality on construction sites.
  • Struck-by accidents: These occur when a worker is hit by a moving object, vehicle, or equipment.
  • Electrocutions: Inadequate wiring, power supply faults, and contact with overhead power lines can lead to fatal electrocutions.
  • Caught-in/between accidents: Workers can become wedged between multiple objects, machinery, or debris—often resulting in life-threatening injuries.

If you or a loved one suffered any of these injuries on a construction site, our seasoned attorneys can fight to restore your financial security and focus on recovery.

What Causes Construction Accidents?

Construction sites are extremely dangerous, even with strict safety regulations in place to protect workers and passing civilians. From falling objects to defective equipment, there’s a lot that can go wrong in Dallas construction. Common causes of construction accidents include:

  • Faulty equipment: Malfunctioning tools and machinery are a major cause of injuries on construction sites.
  • Insufficient training: Workers who lack adequate training on equipment usage and safety practices are more prone to accidents.
  • Poor construction site management: Inadequate supervision and poor site organization can create hazardous work conditions.
  • Lack of protective equipment: Failure to provide or use appropriate safety gear increases the risk of severe injuries.
  • Improper scaffolding assembly: Incorrectly installed scaffolding is a major cause of falls and injuries on Dallas construction sites.
  • Exposed electrical wiring: Unprotected or poorly insulated wiring can lead to electrical accidents.
  • Hazardous materials: Exposure to harmful substances without proper protective measures can result in serious health problems.

Who Is Liable for Construction Accidents?

In construction, there’s a wide range of parties that may be held liable for construction accidents. Common examples include:

  • Project owners
  • Project developers
  • Construction managers
  • General contractors
  • Architects
  • Engineers
  • Superintendents
  • Subcontractors
  • Material suppliers
  • Third-party consultants

Proving Liability in Dallas Construction Accidents

Establishing liability in a construction accident can be complex and often entails many legal intricacies. From filing your claim to pursuing fair compensation, the crux of any successful personal injury case is proving negligence (liability) on the part of the defendant.

It’s important to understand that the plaintiff bears the burden of proof in personal injury cases, meaning the injured party must present sufficient evidence to demonstrate that the defendant's negligence or wrongdoing caused their injuries in order to receive compensation.

To successfully establish liability in a construction accident, working with a trusted construction accident lawyer is a crucial first step. A qualified Dallas attorney can guide your steps wisely while ensuring all legal processes are followed correctly, in addition to helping you establish the four core elements needed to prove liability. These include:

  1. Duty of Care: The claimant must prove that the at-fault party owed a certain duty of care (e.g., the duty to act in a manner that does not expose the plaintiff to unreasonable harm).
  2. Breach of Duty: The plaintiff must show that the defendant breached the aforementioned duty, resulting in injury.
  3. Proximate Cause: The claimant must establish compensatory physical, emotional, or financial damages to collect compensation.
  4. Damages: Plaintiffs must show that the other party’s negligence directly caused their injuries to successfully secure compensation. This can be an exceedingly complex but important step. Seeking sound counsel is imperative to maximize your chance of obtaining a favorable result.

Importance of Hiring Skilled Representation

After sustaining a construction-related injury, it can be difficult to know where to turn, especially when dealing with the emotional, physical, and financial fallout of the adverse health effects. In these situations, securing representation from an experienced construction accident attorney is crucial to protect your rights, pursue justice, and focus on your recovery.

Our Dallas attorneys at MAS Law have over 100 years of combined experience to represent your best interests from start to finish. Our firm can assist with:

  • Filing a claim in Dallas courts: From required paperwork to medical documentation to court deadlines, filing a construction accident claim can be overwhelming for anyone, especially while injured. We can help you stay organized by ensuring all forms and documentation are submitted correctly and on time.
  • Strengthening your case with relevant evidence: We can work closely with you to fortify your claims with as much relevant evidence as possible, from accessing medical records to arranging eyewitness testimonies to consulting with experts to prove the cause of your injury.
  • Negotiating effectively with other parties: Large companies, insurers, and related entities have a reputation for taking advantage of injured parties in court to avoid a just and timely payout. Our team can negotiate effectively with the other parties involved in your case to demand the fair compensation you deserve, minimizing the chance of accepting lowball settlements.
