Third-Party Claims for Injuries Suffered in a Construction Site Accident
Experienced Attorneys to Help You Seek Damages in Addition to Workers’ Compensation
Under the worker’s compensation laws in all states, the benefits available through such a claim are generally considered to be your exclusive remedy after a work-related injury. That usually prevents you from filing a lawsuit in court to recover damages for a workplace injury. There is an exception, however—if the injuries were caused by a third party (someone other than your employer or a co-worker). You may have been hurt in a jobsite motor vehicle accident involving another contractor or because of a defectively manufactured tool. In such a situation, you can simultaneously file a workers’ compensation claim and a civil lawsuit. We can help.
At Bailey & Galyen, we have consistently obtained positive results for people in Texas and across the nation who have suffered serious or catastrophic injury, fighting for the rights of personal injury victims for more than 35 years.

Proven Third-Party Construction Site Injury Claims Lawyers
We offer comprehensive legal counsel to individuals with potential third-party claims arising out of construction site accidents. We will conduct a thorough investigation of the facts and circumstances of your injury to determine if the accident was caused, in part or in whole, by anyone other than your employer or a fellow worker. If so, we will bring a civil lawsuit for damages to help you recover for all your losses, from wages and income to unreimbursed medical expenses, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of companionship or consortium, and physical pain and suffering.
We represent individuals who have any type of third-party claim related to a construction site accident or injury, including:
- Injuries sustained in motor vehicle or heavy equipment accidents
- Injuries caused by dangerous or defective design or manufacture of tools, machines and other job site products
- Injuries caused by workers on adjoining work sites
- Injuries caused by the negligence of unrelated subcontractors on a job site, such as electricians
We handle cases involving all types of serious and catastrophic injury, including traumatic brain injury (TBI), paralysis, spinal cord injury, broken bones, burn injuries, permanent scarring or disfigurement, and amputation or loss of limb.
