Construction Accident Attorney
Serving West Texas Including Odessa, Midland & Beyond
Construction workers in Texas face some of the most dangerous working conditions of any occupation. The work they perform is physical and they are often in close proximity to heavy machinery, power tools, electric wiring, and gas lines. Taking those issues into account, it comes as no surprise that construction workers account for about one in five occupational fatalities in the U.S. each year. According to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) statistics from 2017, nearly 20.7%, or 1 in 5, of the 4,674 occupational fatalities occurred in the construction industry.
There are many different types of construction accidents and causes may vary from worker inexperience to equipment malfunction and even sheer carelessness. Attorney Israel Medina understands these accidents and their causes. He can give you a better idea of why construction accidents occur and what can be done to prevent them. We at The Medina Law Firm can also offer insight and expertise regarding a worker’s legal options and their right to compensation if injured on the job.
On Your Side
At The Medina Law Firm PC, our construction accident attorneys see far too many construction site injury cases. Many of these injuries are life-changing, and they can even result in death. Why do these accidents happen? In some cases, it’s the result of a head contractor that didn’t follow the required safety rules and regulations. In other cases, there’s a problem with a work site or facility that exposed workers to dangerous conditions. Whatever the case may be, Israel Medina is the construction accident attorney you can trust to prove that someone else’s negligence led to the accident. The Medina Law Firm PC has secured fair compensation for several clients in construction workplace accidents.
While construction workplace accidents happen far too often, we know they can easily be prevented as long as employers follow the required safety procedures. When this doesn’t happen, and someone is hurt or even killed, The Medina Law Firm PC steps in to hold these employers accountable. We can secure lost wages for those impacted, including workers’ compensation.
