Construction accidents are a serious problem in the United States, annually resulting in the deaths of hundreds of construction workers as well as thousands of severe injuries. The nature of construction work renders it particularly dangerous for workers, as exposure to heavy equipment, toxic substances, and exposed electrical lines can all have devastating results. Additionally, passersby near construction sites can be caught in crane failures, scaffolding collapses, and other catastrophic construction accidents.
Because of the heavy toll that construction accidents can have on victims’ lives, injured individuals are often entitled to receive compensation from the party at fault in order to help them cope with the consequences of their injuries. If you have been involved in a construction accident in Waco, the attorneys at the Law Offices of Vic Feazell, P.C., understand the issues you may be facing, and we can work with you to secure the remuneration you and your family need.

What Do I Do If A Construction Site Caused My Injury?
Construction site managers and workers have a responsibility to keep their sites as safe as possible. If they fail to do so, pedestrians, bicyclists, and other passersby who are near the sites could easily be injured. While there are incidents in which the responsible parties take all proper precautions, the unfortunate reality is that negligent behavior does happen among contractors, subcontractors, and construction workers. This can result in further dangers on an already hazardous worksite.
Common construction site accidents that hurt innocent people often involve vehicle accidents, scaffolding or crane collapses, explosions, trip and fall accidents caused by uneven pavement and loose debris, or accidents caused by roadway obstructions. Whatever kind of accident you suffer from in or around a construction site, if it occurs due to a manager or employee’s negligence, then you might be able to take legal action against them. Damages available in these types of cases include medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
