Construction comes with many inherent personal injury risks. Power tools, electrical equipment, heavy machinery, negligent site managers, trip and fall hazards, dangerous materials, and working from heights are just some of the many risks construction workers and passersby typically face in construction zones. If you suffered an injury in an Irving, Texas construction accident, please contact the Law Firm of Aaron A. Herbert, P.C. right away for a free consultation. You may possess the legal right to file a claim to damages against one or multiple parties in Dallas County.
A construction site accident attorney in Texas can vastly improve your odds of obtaining a fair compensatory award for your damages. When you negotiate a case alone, an insurance company may try to take advantage of your lack of knowledge or experience in the legal sphere. This could lead to accepting a settlement offer that is far less than your injuries demand. Hiring an attorney gives you more power during settlement negotiations, forcing an insurance company to treat your claim in good faith. You can trust your attorney to take all the right steps toward fair and full compensation while you focus on other things, such as your physical healing and future.
Risks and hazards to workers’ health and safety abound in the construction industry.
