Construction Site Accidents

Quality attorney personally helping injured construction workers in Texas

The construction industry is a large and important part of our economy. From home construction to building high-rises to improvements in industrial plants, it is a necessary field of work that greatly benefits all of us. However, construction jobs result in more work-related deaths than any other industry.

If you suffer from injuries or lost a loved one because of a construction-site accident, help is available from lawyer Harry S. Bates in San Antonio . When you rely on The Bates Law Firm to develop a strategy which may result in a fair settlement, you get the personal attention of a certified specialist by The Texas Board of Legal Specialization with more than 25 years of experience in injury law.

Compensation for construction site injuries

The Texas Workers Compensation Act typically covers expenses related to workplace accidental injury, prohibiting employees from suing employers or coworkers. But claims are often denied unfairly, leaving injury victims to face extensive out-of-pocket medical and other costs. And injuries can often be caused by a third party, such as the manufacturer of faulty equipment or scaffolding. Even if a workers comp claim covers medical expenses and other losses, it may be possible to pursue compensation from third parties who are liable for your injuries.

The Bates Law Firm has the experience and skill you need when dealing with the red tape of the workers comp system or recovering compensation in personal injury litigation. Texas attorney Harry Bates personally handles each case to analyze the complex laws involved, determine your best chance of recovering compensation and aggressively represent your interests, no matter how long it takes, until we get you the compensation you need and deserve.
