Across the nation, there are plenty of jobs and positions that may be considered extremely dangerous. Among them would be the construction industry. With so many moving parts, busy co-workers, and heavy machinery all over, it is easy to see why construction sites can lead to serious injuries for those on site.
If you have been injured or have lost a loved one in a construction site accident, you may have certain options available for pursuing financial compensation for your losses. The first question to ask is whether the employer maintains a workers' compensation insurance policy.
Texas state law, unlike the laws of many states throughout the country, does not require all employers to carry workers' compensation coverage, but there is still a good chance that your employer does. If this is the case, you should be entitled to file a claim for compensation for your work injuries. Workers' compensation provides payment for medical treatment and partial replacement of lost wages.
In the event that your employer is a nonsubscriber, the term for an employer that does not carry workers' compensation insurance, it is necessary to determine whether the accident was caused by some type of negligence.
