Longview Attorney: Construction Site Accident Claims
Equipment failure, the lack of supervision and safety measures, exposed wires, mud, and debris: these are all things that can lead to devastating industrial and construction site accidents. A person injured on the job due to these dangerous conditions may be able to collect workers' compensation for their work injury. If the accident resulted from the negligent actions of another, the injured worker may also be able to file a third-party liability claim.
At the Law Office of Bradley T. Steele, P.C., in Longview, Texas, we are committed to helping injured clients recover the compensation they need to rebuild their lives following a serious accident. If you or a loved one is dealing with the aftermath of a construction or industrial accident, please contact our office to learn how we can help.

Determining the Faulty Party
Sometimes in construction accidents, it is difficult to determine who or what is at fault for the injury. For instance, you may be employed by a subcontractor, but the general contractor is responsible for the safety measures on site.
As a personal injury attorney with more than 25 years of experience, Mr. Steele is skilled at identifying the negligent party and seeking compensation from the appropriate insurance company. He works closely with our investigator Kevin Oden, to investigate the circumstances of the accident, gather evidence and interview witnesses in order to gain a full understanding of the situation. He then puts together a persuasive case that emphasizes the injury and all its effects in order to maximize compensation.
