Beaumont Construction Accident Lawyers
Southeast Texas Scaffolding Accident Attorneys.
Construction is among the most dangerous jobs available.

From our offices in Beaumont and Nederland, Waldman Smallwood has been representing clients throughout southeast Texas for more than 50 years.

Injuries From Unsafe Working Conditions
Although many employers brag about their high safety ratings or the extra precautions they take to keep workers healthy, the pressure to appear as part of a company that is a forerunner in safety measures often takes its toll on the construction workers themselves. Instead of reducing risks or improving working conditions, many employers encourage their construction workers to hide or downplay injuries.
Our Beaumont construction accident attorneys represent clients who suffer injuries from unsafe conditions, including:
- Falling from ladders or scaffolding
- Being hit by falling objects or power tools
- Entanglement in heavy equipment
- Trench or wall collapses
- Improperly constructed scaffolding, resulting in falls or collapses
- Heavy machinery malfunction
- Electrical shocks
Reporting Construction Accidents
Because most people depend on their construction work as a primary source of income, there is a natural fear in reporting on-the-job injuries. Many people are worried about their employer retaliating against them or about being unable to work because of an injury. When clients contact our firm, we address all aspects of the situation. We help our clients file for workers’ compensation and other government benefits, and we help them find the medical treatment necessary.
How Can We Help You?
If you were injured in a construction accident, we can help protect you from being injured again. In addition to helping ensure you receive the medical attention you need to physically heal from your ladder injury or other construction accident injury, we can also help you protect yourself against any possible retaliation. You do not need to be afraid of being fired or other negative actions from your employer.
We can also help maximize your compensation by filing a third-party injury claim if your construction accident was the fault of someone other than your employer. Third-party claims allow you to collect compensation for pain and suffering in addition to your workers’ compensation benefits.
