Injured by a Slip and Fall Construction Accident

Injured by a Slip and Fall Construction AccidentPeople often describe an exciting adventure as being filled with “thrills and spills.” But if you have been hurt during a slip and fall accident at a Dallas construction site, you know that there was nothing thrilling about your spill.

Many things can cause a fall at a construction site. Trip hazards abound: extension cords, building materials, and tools may litter the worksite. While everyone knows that a clean site is a safe site, too many foremen don’t insist on a neat construction site. This leaves workers at risk of a serious fall. Injured by a slip and fall construction accident:

  • Broken wrist
  • Dislocated shoulder
  • Sprained ankle
  • Knee injuries
  • Head trauma
  • Broken tailbone
  • Back injuries

At the least, any one of the above injuries can cause you to miss work. When the injuries are severe, such as in a back injury or shattered wrist, you may be out of work permanently.

You’ve Been Hurt on a Construction Site. Will You Have the Money You Need?

The Texas workers’ compensation rules and regulations are complicated. How can you be sure, absolutely sure, that you will get the money you need? We’re not just talking about money to cover your medical bills. You may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Missed work
  • Pain and suffering
  • Permanent impairment or disability
  • Ongoing medical care and physical therapy
  • Loss of earning capacity (inability to go back to your job)
