San Antonio Construction Accident Lawyers
There are few work environments more hazardous than a construction site. Construction workers put their lives on the line every day they show up for work. A lapse in safety procedures or a piece of equipment that malfunctions can result in serious injury or death.

Our firm has more than 30 years of experience handling serious personal injury and wrongful death cases. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
What Are My Options After A Construction Accident?
Texas workers’ compensation pays benefits regardless of who was at fault. However, workers’ compensation benefits are limited. If you have suffered a serious injury or lost a breadwinner, your family could still suffer severe financial hardship. In addition, workers’ compensation does not provide any compensation for noneconomic damages such as pain and suffering.
In exchange for providing workers’ compensation, employers are generally protected from being sued by employees who are injured or killed on the job. However, there are times when employees or their family members have the right to sue:
- If the employer did not subscribe to workers’ compensation
- In cases of fatal accidents, if the employer is guilty of gross neglect
- If the injury or death was caused by a third party
While employers are protected from lawsuits, third parties are not. A third party is anyone who does not work for the employer. Examples include site owners, manufacturers of equipment, suppliers and subcontractors working at the site.
Our lawyers will carefully review your case and determine all parties who may be liable. Our decades of experience allow us to build exceptionally strong cases for our clients. We handle all types of construction accident cases, including:
- Falls from ladders and scaffolding
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Heavy equipment accidents
- Trench cave-ins
- Injuries caused by falling objects
- Building collapses
- Injuries cause by nailers and other power tools
