Dallas Construction Accident Lawyers
Upholding Workers’ Rights Throughout Texas
If you were injured at a construction site—either while working or as a visitor to the site—you may have a claim for financial compensation for your injuries. If you are a construction worker on the job site, the circumstances of the accident will determine whether you can bring a third-party injury claim, if you can apply for workers' compensation, or if you can sue your employer directly for compensation.
It's smart to call an experienced Dallas construction accident lawyer as soon as possible after your injury to get a professional opinion. You may have a number of options, but failing to act or taking the wrong action could hurt your chances for full compensation. Contact Crain Lewis Brogdon, LLP. You can speak to a lawyer for free and you pay no attorney's fees unless you receive money for your claim.

Options for Injured Construction Workers
At Crain Lewis Brogdon, LLP, our Dallas personal injury attorneys believe that injured workers deserve aggressive representation and full compensation for their injuries and lost wages. We represent workers injured in falls from scaffolding or roofs, struck by falling objects, by electrocution when wires were left live, crushed in excavation cave-ins, run over by forklifts or hit by cranes, and injured by faulty equipment.
- If your employer subscribes to the workers' comp system and you were hurt in a construction accident because of something your employer did, or your own negligence, then workers' comp is your sole remedy for compensation.
- If a construction worker dies in a fatal construction accident and the employer was found to be "grossly negligent," family members can bring a wrongful death lawsuit against the employer, regardless of whether the employer carries workers' compensation.
- If your employer does NOT carry workers' comp, then the employee can sue their employer, and the employer cannot use the employee’s own negligence against him or her unless the employee was the sole cause of the accident. If the employer is even one percent responsible, you can sue.
- If you were injured from the use of defective machinery, you can bring a third-party claim for product liability against the manufacturer or retailer.
- If you were injured from unsafe conditions created by workers from another company on the job site, you can bring a third-party personal injury suit.
