Construction Accidents

Houston, Texas Construction Accident Lawyer

Construction sites are inherently dangerous. Working with cranes, forklifts, scaffolding, heavy equipment, and toxic chemicals all pose danger to the hard working individuals who earn their living in the construction industry. The dangers are increased when construction companies force employees to work overtime and under tight deadlines. When safety measures and OSHA regulations are disregarded to cut costs, and poorly trained temporary workers are hired, the risk of serious injury and death is greatly increased.

At the Friendswood law offices of Alton C. Todd, we have been helping injured construction workers for more than 35 years. If you have been injured in a construction site accident, there may be a remedy for your injuries. Contact a construction accident attorney at The Law Firm of Alton C. Todd for a free initial consultation to learn how we can help.

Third party liability for construction worker injury and death

At our law firm, we help workers injured on construction sites recover payment for their injuries caused by the negligence of another entity. We have filed injury claims for construction site employees working on downtown office buildings, petrochemical plants, shopping centers, residential developments, and government buildings. Our law firm works to identify the responsible parties. On a construction project, these may include contractors, subcontractors, electricians, plumbers, engineers, architects, crane operators, scaffolding contractors, heavy equipment subcontractors, and many others.

Your construction accident injury case is our cause

Our law firm works hard to build a strong case for you based on a thorough investigation of your construction accident. We have been handling lawsuits like these for many years, and we know where to look to determine responsibility. Our experience with the investigation of crane accidents and the analysis of scaffolding collapses is useful for all construction injury clients, whatever the cause of their accident.

Our attorneys consult safety experts and accident investigators to expose OSHA and other safety violations that lead to unsafe construction sites. Our office also works with medical experts in determining the scope and nature of our client's injuries, explaining to jurors the prognosis, the extent of the injuries, and what kind of medical treatment is needed to recover.
