Experienced Construction Accident Lawyer in Austin, Texas
Construction sites are among the most dangerous work environments. Construction workers face hazards at every turn, from heavy equipment and power tools to tripping hazards and working at heights. When you add safety violations and human error into the mix, it is a blueprint for serious injuries or fatal accidents.Construction workers are not always advised of their rights when they are injured in the scope of employment. Namely, construction workers may mistakenly believe they are limited to workers’ compensation claims, when in fact they could have grounds to sue third parties who were negligent or willfully indifferent to safe working conditions. The civil litigation firm of Shaw Cowart LLP provides powerful advocacy to workers in the construction industry, enabling those individuals to hold general contractors, subcontractors, equipment manufacturers, property owners, utility companies and other entities accountable under the laws of Texas.
Shaw Cowart LLP offers experienced and aggressive representation to construction workers injured on the job in the Austin area and Central Texas. Tell us about your accident on our consultation form or by calling 512-499-8900.
