There’s a great deal of construction going on in Texas right now because of the economic boom that Texas is experiencing. While the construction is great for the economy, it comes at a cost. Construction is one of the most dangerous lines of work in the U.S., and every year thousands of construction workers are injured or killed while on the job.
If you are a construction worker in Wylie, you already know of the dangers that you face on every job site. Even a minor error can have serious consequences and render workers unable to work for months or even permanently. Some of the most common types of accidents on construction sites in Wylie include falls, electrocution, accidents involving scaffolding or ladders, explosions, accidents involving machines, and accidents involving falling objects.
In many cases, construction workers who are injured on the job need more compensation than workers’ comp will provide. In some situations, the injured construction worker may be able to make up the difference by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent party. In order to do so, your attorney needs to recover evidence from the scene, talk to witnesses, and perform an investigation. If you let too much time pass, memories will fade, and the evidence that could be used in your case will be disturbed.
