Commercial and residential construction is a booming industry in Texas. Unfortunately, thousands of workers are severely injured or killed each year at construction sites. Often these work injuries deaths are the result of employers not complying with the many federal and state laws which govern construction site safety. Sometimes construction accidents are simply the result of not providing basic safety training to the construction workers themselves.
Most construction employers, including general contractors and subcontractors, are required to properly insure their workers. However, injured workers are often abandoned by their employers without sufficient means to pay for their medical bills or lost wages. It is easy for contractors to replace an injured worker with yet another laborer.
