HURT ON THE JOB? WE CAN HELP
Have you suffered a work-related injury at a construction site? Have you lost a family member in a workplace accident? After a construction site accident, there are several types of financial compensation that you may be eligible to pursue, but you may not know where to turn. Scott McLemore can help you navigate your options and help you through a difficult time as construction accidents can cause great harm.
You may be entitled to Workers’ Compensation. First, you need to find out if the injury will be covered by your company’s workers’ compensation insurance policy. Workers’ Compensation Insurance pays for related medical costs and pays a portion of your salary while you are unable to work. The state of Texas does not follow the same laws like many other states when it comes to workers’ compensation insurance policies. Employers are not required to provide coverage; however, many do.
If your injury isn’t covered by workers’ compensation insurance because your employer is a nonsubscriber, you must investigate the cause of the accident. If your injury was caused by negligence, faulty equipment, or safety standards not being met, there might be sufficient evidence to support a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit against the employer. If the accident was caused by a machine or equipment malfunction, the manufacturer might be liable, which entitles you to pursue a product liability lawsuit.

TYPICAL CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENTS
The McLemore Law Firm has extensive experience representing victims of common types of construction accidents such as:
- Electrocutions—high- and low-voltage electrical injuries
- Falls and scaffolding accidents
- Chemical burns
- Forklift injuries and accidents
- Crane injuries
- Being hit by falling debris or building materials
- Getting hit by machinery or being backed over by construction trucks

OSHA requires employers to deliver a safe place to work. Often construction job sites are made more dangerous by employers who cut corners and fail to provide safety equipment. When you’re hurt on the job by no fault of your own, you may need a personal injury lawyer to help you through the process.
