Identifying Who Is Responsible and Seeking Damages on Your Behalf
In Texas, employers are not required to participate in the workers' compensation system. Because accidents on construction sites are common and may be the fault of any number of different people or companies, many construction contractors choose to opt out.
Different types of construction accidents can have a wide variety of causes. The following are some of the most common causes of accidents:
- Defective scaffolding and ladders
- Falling objects
- Hidden premises defects
- Defective machinery
Depending on the facts of your accident, the property owner, the general contractor, a subcontractor or some other party may be legally at fault. If workers' comp is not available, you can bring a lawsuit for money damages against the responsible party.
