Our Construction Truck Accident Attorneys Build a Case for Damages
An accident involving construction trucks in Texas can mean a lot of things—vehicle collisions, getting hit with debris, or suffering injury from malfunctioning equipment that causes fire. As a result, each case has different consequences, so we focus our pursuit of damages on your distinct losses.
- Medical losses: Any expenses related to both your care and your recovery
- Career losses: Any lost income, reduced earning capacity, or gaps in income
- Personal losses: Pain and suffering, emotional distress, reduced quality of life
As an example, let’s say you were in a passenger vehicle and were hit by a dump truck that was transporting material removed from a construction site. You suffered catastrophic injuries, including a spinal cord injury that has left you permanently paralyzed from the waist down.
The National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSCISC) estimates your lifetime costs at $1.7 to $2.6 million. You’ll need training for a new job, changes to your home to accommodate a wheelchair, and are at increased risk of other medical conditions. Our construction truck accident attorneys in Texas would not only seek compensation for all that, but also pursue damages for your loss of enjoyment of life, changes to relationships, and psychological trauma.
While truck accidents tend to carry a greater risk of serious injury, you don’t have to have suffered catastrophic injuries to receive compensation. Before making any assumptions about what you deserve, contact Carrigan & Anderson, PLLC.
Fatal Construction Accidents
Construction is infamously one of the most dangerous industries. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that 2022 saw the highest fatal work injuries take place in transportation and material moving. If your loved one was a construction worker injured in a truck accident, our work injury lawyers can investigate their case for negligence and seek damages. We may file a workers’ compensation claim or pursue a lawsuit, depending on the circumstances.
If your family was an innocent bystander or driver who lost their life to a construction truck, you also have recourse. Our Texas wrongful death lawyers can look into an insurance claim or lawsuit to recover the cost of their care and funeral, as well as any lost income.
Fatal accident cases also allow surviving family members like you to recover compensation for your pain and suffering and grief. These damages are based on your relationship to the deceased. Talk to us about who this person was to you and how their loss has left a void in your life, and we’ll seek acknowledgment through damages.

Our Truck Collision Lawyers Build a Case Against Multiple Parties
Whether your accident occurred at a construction site or on the road, there were likely a lot of moving parts and contributing factors. Sifting through them is a service we provide when we take on your case.
We act quickly to secure and analyze evidence like video footage from traffic cameras, security cameras, vehicle dash cameras, and eyewitness phone cameras. Our construction truck crash attorneys also work with local Texas authorities, going over police reports for evidence. We’ll consult experts, reconstruct the crash, and ultimately identify the chain of events that ended in your accident.
We’ll then use that evidence to identify who is liable. That isn’t just the person who directly injured you, but also any parties who shared responsibility.
Drivers who fall down on the job—using alcohol or drugs, operating a vehicle while drowsy, texting, failing to signal, or speeding—are responsible for the damage they cause.
The construction company is potentially liable in several scenarios, such as:
- Failing to maintain the truck
- Not hiring qualified drivers or failing to train them
- Not properly securing cargo or materials
- Not following safety regulations
- Lack of signage or instructions on site
We’ll investigate the circumstances of your crash to see how the construction company is connected to it.
The construction truck that hit you might have been owned by a separate trucking company hired by the construction company. We can look into who owns and operates the truck and hold the trucking company liable for accidents related to their or their driver’s negligence.
The construction truck may have hit you because of something on the road or property. For instance, potholes, lack of lighting, confusing signage, or inadequate warning about hazards can all contribute to or cause accidents. Property owners can include private individuals, businesses, or government entities.
