Construction work is an inherently dangerous occupation. In fact, in 2018 over a fifth (21.1%) of all private industry worker deaths in the US were in a construction vehicle accident. Specific industries that involve construction projects – such as mining, oil drilling, transportation infrastructure, commercial and residential building – all have their own unique risks, but they also have some shared dangers.
Specifically, heavy machinery and equipment are common, unfinished worksites have dangers like live wires and hazardous materials, and the simple fact that there are so much activity and change in a construction zone means confusion and visibility are ongoing issues. The dangers are not limited to only workers on the job. For example, other individuals near work sites or encountering a construction accident on the road run risks of serious accidents and injury, as well.
Construction accident lawyers require a great degree of knowledge about the specific risks and dangers their clients face in these types of accidents. Additionally, they need extremely strong litigation and negotiation skills to go to battle with the various commercial entities that often share liability for the events of a construction accident. Thompson Law’s Dallas construction accident lawyers possess those strengths and have the drive and concern for our clients to make sure that these battles are won each and every time.
So, if you have suffered a construction accident, don’t delay reaching out to Thompson Law. Your consultation is risk-free, and not only is there no charge – our firm works on a contingency fee basis. This means there’s no fee for our services unless and until we win your case!
Statistics for construction accidents can be difficult to identify because the documentation collected in the construction industry are relatively long-term. For example, research typically spans a decade or more, meaning data is highly accurate for the term of the study. However, recent construction accident trends are less easily traced. Still, our Dallas construction accident lawyers note some extremely important takeaways from all this data.
There are many types of heavy machinery that cause injury when used improperly on construction sites, such as those used for hauling, lifting, building, demolishing, or other specialized tasks. Further, construction equipment is not always equipped with the same protections or safety features we see in standard cars. Open cabins, lack of airbags, slippery and uneven surfaces, and dangerous components can all become traps for injury and death when not safely utilized. For example, vehicles our Dallas construction accident lawyers regularly see involved in construction accidents include:

Determining who the actual liable party is can present a particular challenge if you have been injured on a construction job site, and our Dallas construction accident lawyers can help. Typically, many parties are involved with construction work, such as: contractors, subcontractors, engineers, architects, equipment purveyors, contracting individuals, and companies or government agencies. Moreover, any or all of these parties may have played a role in setting up the dangerous circumstances that led to your construction accident and injury.

All of these frustrations and inconveniences of course pale in comparison to the pain and suffering after an injury from a construction accident.
