San Antonio Construction Accident Attorneys
Protecting the Rights of Construction Workers
Construction sites are dangerous by nature—that is why so many safety precautions are in place to protect you and your fellow workers. If one piece of equipment malfunctions or a subcontractor fails to do his or her job and causes a serious accident, your life may be on the line.
If you or a loved one has been injured on a construction site, you may have the right to file a lawsuit against the construction company or another third party. The San Antonio construction accident attorneys of Maloney Law Group, P.L.L.C. can help you determine whether you have a valid case and, if so, can help you pursue compensation for your injuries.

When Can You Bring a Third-Party Work Injury Claim?
After a workplace accident in Texas, you are typically eligible for workers' compensation regardless of who is at fault, so long as your employer subscribes to the plan. However, workers’ compensation may not cover all of your medical and personal expenses.
Our San Antonio construction accident lawyers can investigate your situation thoroughly to show fault on the part of the negligent party or parties.
You may be eligible to bring a third-party work injury claim (in addition to or instead of a workers’ compensation claim) if:
- A third party is involved (such as a product manufacturer or negligent subcontractor)
- You are not eligible for workers' compensation
- There is a case of gross negligence on the part of your employer
Regardless of the specific details of your case, our lawyers will vigorously pursue compensation on your behalf. We work tirelessly to help injured construction workers fight for the maximum compensation they are owed so that they can get back on their feet. If your injuries are temporarily or permanently disabling, we are ready to seek compensation for your future medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering, as well.
Our team will also work closely with your doctors and other medical professionals to track your progress and establish how your injuries may affect your ability to return to work soon or ever. We use this information to calculate what your injuries will cost you throughout your life and work with the negligent party's insurance carrier to cover these expenses.
What to Do If You Are Involved in a Construction Accident
After a construction accident, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. If necessary, call 911 and go to the hospital. Even if you believe you were not seriously injured, see a medical professional as soon as possible after the accident, as some injuries may take hours or even days to appear.
If you are a construction worker who is injured on the job, be sure to notify your employer of the incident right away. To be eligible for workers’ compensation, you will need to report your workplace injury within 30 days. If you wish to file a personal injury claim after a construction accident, and you are eligible, you must bring your claim within two years of the date of the accident. Failure to meet the statute of limitations will result in your case being dismissed.
After the accident, you should reach out to an experienced attorney as soon as possible. The insurance company will likely go to great lengths to deny liability; it may dispute your injuries or argue that you had a pre-existing condition. It’s important that you have a legal team on your side that can fight back against these tactics and advocate for the full, fair recovery you deserve.
