After a Construction Accident

After a Construction Accident in TexasOne of the first things you should do after a construction accident injury is contact a lawyer.

Construction Accident Case Timeline

You may be wondering how long it’s going to take to resolve your construction accident injury claim.

Your claim’s timeframe will depend on what type of injury was incurred and how long it takes you to recover. We stay in contact with your medical team throughout the healing process to track your progress. As soon as we get word that you’ve reached maximum medical improvement, we attempt to resolve the claim by requesting compensation from the insurance company.

We attempt to achieve a fair settlement as soon as possible, but if the insurance company is not willing to resolve your claim with an adequate settlement, we must move forward with litigation.

Resolving a claim via settlement is always preferable to a trial when it comes to the amount of time that will be necessary for each.

If the insurance company is unwilling to offer a fair settlement, then we must go to trial on the date appointed by the courts. At that point, the timeline of the claim is really in the hands of the courts.

Construction Accident Claim Value

You may be wondering how to determine the value of a construction accident injury claim.

The value of such a claim is determined looking at the injury and the medical care expenses you’ve incurred because of your injuries.

We look at lost wages since the injury occurred. Then, looking forward, we examine any impairment that will inhibit your ability to continue gainful employment.

We look at loss of earning capacity. Are you able to work at the same rate you could before the accident, and if not, how much has the amount you are capable of earning diminished?

In addition to the factors mentioned above, we examine the conduct that led to the accident or injury.

When you hire an experienced construction accident lawyer, you can be assured that every relevant factor will be considered when compensation is requested for your damages.
