Construction Accidents

McAllen Construction Accident Lawyer

Construction sites are among the most dangerous work environments, making construction accidents a frequent service area under personal injury law in Texas. 

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reports that one in five worker deaths in the US in 2019 were in construction. The inherent risks of construction work and negligence or safety violations can lead to severe injuries or even fatalities. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has reported that 46 percent of all fatal falls, slips, and trips in 2021 occurred in the construction sector. 

These statistics illustrate the higher risk for injury and death that construction workers face throughout the U.S. 

The key factors that make construction sites exceptionally risky include the hazardous materials often used, heavy machinery operation, high-altitude work, and the potential for falling objects. Moreover, construction work usually involves temporary structures and changing environments, contributing to unpredictability and increased risk.

At Karam Law Firm, we understand the life-changing impact an on-the-job injury can have on workers and their families. Most of these injuries are handled through workers’ compensation claims, which result in compensation for medical expenses and wage benefits. 

However, in some cases, Texas personal injury law may come into play when a third party contributes to or causes an injury or death to a construction worker. Our firm can help you understand the legalities of your accident and the options available to you in seeking all of the compensation you are entitled to in Texas.

Construction Site Accidents in Texas

At Karam Law Firm, we represent clients and their families who have been injured in various types of construction site accidents.

These can include but are not limited to:

  • Falls from heights: Construction workers often have to work at considerable heights, and a lack of proper safety equipment or violation of safety standards can lead to serious falls.
  • Equipment accidents: Workers may be injured due to malfunctioning or poorly maintained equipment, such as the following:
    • Cranes. These machines are used for lifting and moving heavy materials and can cause severe accidents if they malfunction or are improperly operated.
    • Forklifts. For moving materials around the site, forklifts can tip over or cause injuries if they fail or are mishandled.
    • Power tools. Malfunctions or misuse of power tools, such as drills, saws, and nail guns, can lead to severe injuries.
    • Excavators and loaders. These heavy machines are crucial for digging and moving large loads of earth. Breakdowns or operational failures can result in severe accidents.
    • Scaffolding. Used for working at heights, defective or improperly installed scaffolding can collapse or fail, causing falls and severe injuries.
    • Welding equipment. Defects can lead to fires, explosions, or harmful exposure to gases and fumes.
    • Conveyer systems. These systems are often employed to move materials around large sites. Workers can be injured by falling objects or get caught in faulty machinery.
