Dallas Construction Accidents and Injuries Statistics

Construction sites are necessary for cities and growing communities, but they are not without risk. All construction sites have the potential to injure workers, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has identified the top four causes of construction worksite deaths as:

  • Falls
  • Electrocution
  • Being struck by an object
  • Being caught between objects
  • Failing to obey traffic signals or yield to pedestrians
  • Backing up without looking

So many accidents with serious injury are completely preventable. In 2020, there were 469 fatal occupational injuries in Texas, a 23% drop from the prior year. Of these, 127 were construction accidents. Construction sites include:

  • Residential home building sites (single-family homes and apartment buildings)
  • Commercial buildings site
  • Industrial facility building sites
  • Infrastructure projects, like roads and airports.

According to the Texas Department of Insurance, Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC), the construction industry has the highest number of fatalities for occupational injuries - accounting for 27% of all occupational fatalities.

Common Construction Accident Causes

Construction sites have many hazards which can cause serious accidents and life-changing injuries. Common causes of Texas construction accidents include:

  • Being struck by a falling object
  • Crane accidents
  • Defective products, equipment, or tools
  • Electrocution
  • Explosions
  • Exposure to hazardous materials
  • Excavation accidents
  • Falling materials or debris
  • Lack of protective equipment
  • Ladder and scaffolding accidents
  • Missing protection on power tools
  • Nail gun accidents
  • Trench collapses / cave-ins
  • Tripping hazards
  • Vehicle accidents.

Construction is almost everywhere in North Texas, with both constant construction and constant renewal. When companies place profits before people, and unsafe conditions lead to devastating accidents, construction companies must be held accountable for the serious injuries they cause.

Types of Injuries in Construction Accidents

Injuries at construction sites can be serious or catastrophic. Some of the serious injuries we see in Dallas construction accidents include:

  • Back injuries
  • Knee injuries
  • Burn injuries
  • Limb amputation injuries
  • Chemical burns
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Electrocution injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Eye injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries

Some construction accident injuries are simply not survivable. In cases of fatal construction accidents, surviving family members may pursue a wrongful death claim.

Liability for Construction Accidents in Dallas, Texas

Numerous parties may be liable for a construction accident, and determining who is responsible can be complicated. Potentially liable parties for a Dallas construction accident include:

  • Municipalities
  • Equipment operators
  • Property Owners
  • Equipment manufacturers
  • Contractors
  • Other construction workers
  • Subcontractors

A visible hazard, or evidence of a dangerous condition, at a job site may be eliminated very quickly following an accident. Because of this, it is critical to preserve accidents as soon as possible, before evidence disappears, and your claim will be vulnerable to denial.

Damages You Could Recover Through Your Construction Accident Case

Depending on how an injury occurs - your legal rights will vary, as well as the type of compensation you can rec. Texas construction accident claims can be divided into three types:

Standard workers’ compensation claims

A no-fault system to cover your medical expenses and a portion of your lost wages when you have to miss work after you were hurt on the job.

Non-subscriber claim

If the company did not have a workers’ comp policy, you can pursue a personal injury claim.

Third-party claim

If someone else, such as an equipment manufacturer, caused your injury, you can pursue a lawsuit against any third party responsible for your injuries. Third-party claims do not exclude you from pursuing a personal injury claim.

A lawyer can help you understand the options available to you to pursue compensation following an accident.

How Long Do I Have to File a Construction Accident Lawsuit in Texas?

Time is of the essence after a construction accident. Every state has a specific window of time that limits the time period accident victims may bring a claim. In Texas, you have just one year to file a workers’ compensation claim. You have two years from the date of your injury to file a lawsuit.

Failing to report your accident, or file a timely claim, may result in the dismissal of your case. To ensure your rights are protected, contact a lawyer as soon as possible.

Client Testimonials



Car Accident Case

I was in a terrible car wreck back in June. I found Brooks & Radchenko and was put into contact with Halina. She assisted me in finding and receiving medical treatment to treat my injuries so that I could return to work. She also fought for the insurance company to pay a settlement to cover all of my expenses from the car wreck, my lost wages from missing work, and compensation for my pain. I could not imagine having a better attorney for this situation.



Child Support Case

Brooks and Radchenko did an amazing job on my case. They were able to resolve my family issue and allow me to see my children on a weekly basis. Halina and Britton walked me through the process and fought for me in court. I would highly recommend this firm for any family law situation.

Halina Radchenko was so hardworking when she was handling my car accident. Unlike with other attorneys, I always felt supported and confident with her help, and I could not be more pleased with the results!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Am I covered by workers’ compensation?


    Workers’ compensation offers no-fault benefits - meaning when you are injured, you are entitled to compensation. If your employer has workers’ comp benefits, as long as you notify your employer promptly of your accident you are entitled to benefits. However, Texas does not require employers to have workers’ comp coverage.

  • When can you sue your employer for a construction site injury?


    If your employer is a “non subscriber,” meaning they are “bare” or without workers’ compensation coverage, you may sue your employer if you are injured on the job due to your employer’s negligence. Damages available exceed typical workers’ compensation benefits and can be substantial.
