A worker fell approximately 40 feet in a construction accident on a Frisco jobsite on May 12, 2017. The man was climbing on scaffolding when he fell to the ground, and he was transported to a hospital with serious injuries. The employee was working on an apartment complex that was under construction.
Another All-Too Common Construction Accident
A construction accident like this happens far too often in Texas, and there are typically several reasons why this type of incident occurs. In many cases, accidents happen due to the negligence of another worker. Even a relatively minor mistake can have life-changing consequences.
But many times a construction accident will take place due to a poorly designed or manufactured piece of equipment. It could be a machine that malfunctions at just the wrong time, or a scaffold or ladder that was made improperly.
Regardless of the cause, a construction accident can rob a family of not only a loved one, but also much needed work compensation. But workplace injuries can take place anywhere at any time. They can occur in dangerous work environments as well as in a seemingly harmless office environment. If you are unable to work due to an injury, it can be a very stressful, confusing time. You might not know where to turn.
Taking Legal Action
Your best recourse may be to file a work injury lawsuit. However, in Texas you only have a specific amount of time in which you can take legal action. This is typically two years from the date that the accident occurred. But you need to speak with an experienced attorney in order to know the course of action that will be best for you.
