A Houston construction accident lawyer from The Law Offices of Omar Khawaja will fight to get you the money you need to pay for your losses.

Our legal team will handle the negotiations so that you can prioritize your health and recovery.

The Law Offices of Omar Khawaja has a legal team of Houston construction accident lawyers who are ready to investigate your case and hold liable parties accountable for their negligent actions. 

Types of Houston Construction Accident Cases We Handle

Due to the varied and extreme nature of construction work in general, several causes can result in your accident injuries when on the job. It is imperative for you or your family members to hire a Houston construction accident lawyer that understands the civil laws that apply to these types of accident injury cases. The Law Offices of Omar Khawaja has years of experience in protecting hardworking Texans when they are hurt on the job.

The types of Houston construction accident cases we handle include:

  • Falls from heights and falling objects
  • Slip and fall accidents and premises liability
  • Machinery and equipment accidents
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Scaffolding and ladder accidents
  • Explosions and fires
  • Electrical shock
  • And more

Many people do not recognize that they can hire a Houston construction accident lawyer after a work accident since employers handle the workers’ compensation claims process. However, when the claims process does not go as expected, work with The Law Offices of Omar Khawaja to protect your right to an award that you deserve.

A Houston Construction Accident Lawyer Holds Negligent Parties Accountable for Their Actions

Construction workers do not always know their full rights after a workplace injury. Our legal team has discovered that injury and wrongful death victims believe they have no recourse beyond a workers’ compensation claim. There are additional forms of compensation that go beyond workman’s comp to receive an equitable reward in several cases.

Depending upon what our investigation uncovers, a Houston construction accident lawyer can hold the following parties accountable for their actions:

  • Managers
  • General contractors
  • Subcontractors
  • Property owners
  • Equipment manufacturers
  • Utility companies
  • Other third-parties

Our legal team will put its resources behind you so that we can arrive at a conclusive determination regarding the facts of your case backed by admissible, discoverable evidence. As new developments arise, your Houston construction accident lawyer will communicate them to you, explain your options, and follow through on your directives. If we need to hire experts, such as accident reconstruction experts and economists, to obtain a full award on your behalf, we will not ask for any form of an advance payment.

Compensation Is Your Right After a Construction Accident

If your employer follows the Texas workers’ compensation system, you cannot file a lawsuit against your employer when you are injured at work. Instead, you obtain financial compensation through their workers’ compensation policy. However, these policies only pay medical costs, lost wages, and other essential expenses.

However, you may have an opportunity to receive additional compensation types that go beyond workers’ compensation benefits. At The Law Offices of Omar Khawaja, your Houston construction accident lawyer will help you determine if you can file a third-party claim against anyone who is not your employer but caused your accident and subsequent injuries.

Simply speaking, we will help you make a recovery of:

  • All related current and ongoing medical costs
  • All related current and future lost earnings and benefits
  • Physical pain and suffering and mental anguish
  • Vocational and physical therapy
  • Survival action and wrongful death damages
  • Punitive damages
  • Other recoverable losses permitted by law

In contrast to a workers’ compensation claim, you must prove that the third-party was negligent. It is also critically important to know that the other party may try to shift some of the blame for the accident to you. As such, hire a Houston construction accident lawyer with a strong command of these laws when pursuing a third-party claim.
