Question After a Houston Construction Accident
- Did the employer follow all safety guidelines?
- Was all equipment in good repair and with safety mechanisms in place?
- Were all workers at the site given proper training and supervision?
The fact is, sometimes companies take shortcuts; for example, they may rush to complete a job even though a piece of heavy machinery is broken. Or, perhaps guardrails were not installed along a railing. In other cases, simple incompetence or poor decisions lead to incidents that cause serious injury.
Spinal Cord Injuries Caused by Construction Accidents
Spinal cord injuries can be devastating, resulting in symptoms ranging from pain to quadriplegia. Spinal cord injuries require immediate and ongoing treatment that can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, followed by a lifetime of rehabilitation and therapy.
For construction workers, this kind of injury can prevent them from ever working again. You may be entitled to workers’ compensation, but these claims often don’t cover all the expenses that come with this dramatic change in your life: the doctor’s visits, the adaptive equipment, and the income you could be making if you weren’t injured.
A skilled Houston workplace accident attorney can not only fight for you to recover all current medical expenses but also your future medical and living expenses.
