Construction Accident Lawyer in Austin

Helping You Recover from Devastating Injuries

Job sites are often dangerous, and while safety laws require the use of equipment like hardhats and harnesses, the sheer power of some of the machinery and other tools can cause serious damage to a person. Many times, these injuries are severe and life-changing. Recovery can mean making permanent changes to the way a person lives their life. If you were hurt in a construction accident, contact the Austin personal injury lawyer at the Law Offices of Jay Doyle, P.C. today for a free consultation about your case.

Dial (512) 270-2107 now or contact our Austin construction accident lawyer online. We have helped our clients win millions in damage awards.

Injuries at a Job Site

Imagine walking near a backhoe one minute and lying on the ground the next. With such heavy machinery swinging around, loss of a limb or other body part is not an unusual occurrence. In 2013, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reported that 20 percent of worker fatalities took place in construction, making it crucial for all such companies to provide their laborers with as much protection as possible.

Some common injuries on job sites include:

  • Falls from scaffolding
  • Slips on slick surfaces
  • Electrocution
  • Being hit by a moving object
  • Crush injuries

While these accidents are known risks of job sites, they happen far too often. Your employer has a duty to keep you safe.

Fighting for Fair Compensation

Texas does not require employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance, meaning that if a worker suffers an injury, it is up to the business owner to cover the costs of recovery. Of course, this often means they will try to blame accident victims to avoid paying out a bigger settlement. Thanks to Texas’ contributory negligence laws, your compensation could be reduced if you are found to have been at fault. It is important to speak with an attorney about how to deal with these complications.

Our firm can help you:

  • Prove the job site was unsafe
  • Show a lack of safety practices and equipment
  • Demonstrate your responsible behavior
