Construction Accident Lawyers
Compensation for a Construction Accident is Your Legal Right.
Construction is a risky occupation- workers face a variety of potential safety risks and health hazards on a daily basis.
If you have been injured while working, you deserve to be compensated for your losses.
At Leinart Law Firm, we pursue workers’ comp benefits on behalf of construction workers in the Dallas, Fort Worth area and throughout North Texas. Importantly, we will also investigate our clients’ cases to see if someone other than their employer may be responsible for their injuries. While workers’ compensation limits the benefits you can seek from your employer, it does not limit the liability of other parties. If a contractor, subcontractor, or other party is to blame for your losses, we may be able seek workers’ comp benefits and pursue personal injury damages on your behalf.
To claim workers’ compensation for a construction site accident..
To claim workers’ compensation for a construction site accident, there are important steps you need to take from the moment you suffer your injury. This includes reporting the accident to your employer and either choosing a doctor out of your employer’s network or opting out of the network. However, even if you do opt out, there are still restrictions on the doctors you can see. These are requirements under the Illinois Workers Compensation Act. If you do not follow these requirements, you may forfeit your right to compensation.
