Construction Accidents

Construction sites are busy places. They are also dangerous places. Multiple trades are usually on site. Even if you are doing your job safely, other people may not be.

When accidents happen at a construction site, many workers believe that their only recourse is through worker’s compensation. This is not always the case. If a worker from another company caused your injury, you may have a claim against their company. You should also make sure you fully understand your status as an employee. Were you a full time employee? Did your employer have worker’s compensation insurance? Were you an independent contractor? Were you working under the direction of a company that was not your actual employer?

The worker’s compensation system in Texas is very restrictive in terms of what you can recover. If you are able to file suit against a company or worker other than the one you are working for, you will have a broader opportunity to recover damages for things like mental anguish, physical pain and disfigurement.

Workplace and construction accidents need to be thoroughly investigated. If you or a loved one was injured in a workplace or construction accident, call Hoch Law Firm, PC to discuss your way forward.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Tim represented us in a dispute with our insurance company over roof damage due to a hail storm in the Dallas area. We were very disheartened by the constant denials and dishonest treatment we were receiving from the insurance carrier, and Tim counseled us to remain patient while he systematically put together expert opinions and facts that supported our claim. Eventually we were able to settle our case and had the roof replaced on our apartment building just two months before the big tornado hit in late 2015. Our investment property was the only one in the area that did not sustain any roof damage! We were lucky with our timing, but we were even more fortunate to have Tim on our side. We highly recommend Tim's firm!

In short order, he was able to quickly understand and master the details of our case and map out a very cost-effective, efficient legal strategy. After a series of quick wins in court, our opponent came to the table with a highly satisfactory settlement. Mr. Hoch’s ability to effectively tell a persuasive story within the confines of a courtroom is without equal. Anthony Page
