The Rights of Construction Workers

When workers are injured, they have rights. Specifically, regulations created by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration hold employers and negligent parties legally accountable for the suffering of workers.

After construction accidents in Midland-Odessa, workers have the right to:

  • Seek medical attention from their preferred doctor.
  • Report their injuries and pursue compensation for them without the fear of retaliation.
  • Pursue benefits or compensation for medical care, lost wages, and more.
  • Wait until healing before returning to work.
  • Seek retribution if an employer fires or demotes a person for reporting injuries.

In a perfect world, those who cause accidents would have these rights instantly offered to them. Unfortunately, it often takes the assistance of a construction accident attorney to make sure that workers are afforded these basic rights as well as the compensation they need to recover financially from an accident.

Midland-Odessa Construction Accident FAQ

What Causes Construction Accidents?

Every accident is different. However, many have one thing in common: negligence. Some of the factors that commonly contribute to Midland-Odessa construction accidents include tired workers, undertrained or inexperienced workers, violations of state and federal safety laws, lack of fall protection, lack of protection for ground workers, and poorly maintained, defective, or dangerous machinery.

Those in charge of construction sites are required to eliminate these hazards from worksites by taking steps to stop them. Training, safety equipment, inspections, and responsibility are required at all times to do this.

What Is the Fatal Four?

The Fatal Four is a set of the most common fatal accidents in the construction industry. According to OSHA data, if these accidents were prevented, over half of construction-related fatalities would be prevented in the United States. In 2018, this would have meant that 591 lives would have been saved had these hazards been prevented as they should’ve been. Construction’s “Fatal Four" are: falls, struck by swinging, flying, or falling objects, electrocution, and caught-in/between accidents.

What Can You Recover After a Construction Accident?

If you’ve sustained serious injuries while working at a construction site, it’s important to find out if your company has a workers’ compensation policy. Importantly, Texas is the only state that doesn’t require employers to have this coverage. If your employer does have workers’ compensation, you can file a claim. However, you should also speak with an attorney before accepting any type of payment from your workers’ compensation claim.

Personal injury claims help recover economic damages such as lost wages, lost earning capacity, medical bills, costs of future medical care, and emotional trauma like pain and suffering. These recovery options listed above extend far beyond the payment provided by a workers’ compensation plan. A personal injury claim cam help you pursue the full amount of compensation you need rather than only receiving the limits of workers' comp.
