Serious Workplace Injuries

Texas workers are often engaged in some of the most dangerous industries in the country. You work hard to build a future for yourself and your family, and you take risks every day. But those risks are supposed to be minimized by today’s safety standards put in place to protect workers like you. Unfortunately, too many companies cut corners to cut their costs and increase their profits. Their profits come at a great cost to the workers who are injured and the loved ones of those who are killed on the job.

Examples of serious workplace injuries, that are all too common, include:

  • Spinal cord injury
  • Brain injury
  • Amputations
  • Crush injuries
  • Organ damage or loss
  • Severe burns
  • Chemical burns
  • Respiratory damage
  • Heart damage
  • Vision loss
  • Hearing loss
  • Back injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Electric shock or electrocution
  • Toxic exposure
  • Paralysis
  • Paraplegia
  • Quadriplegia
  • Scarring so severe that it limits mobility

Full Compensation for Your Workplace Accident

If you were injured on the job in Texas, you may be eligible for Workers’ Compensation. It pays pretty quickly and you do not have to prove fault, but it will not cover all of your losses. If you are eligible for Workers’ Compensation benefits, you cannot sue your employer under most circumstances, but you may still be able to recover full compensation for your injuries through a third party lawsuit. This is a lawsuit against someone other than your employer who was responsible for your accident or injuries. That may be another company that was working on the same job site, which is common in fields such as construction and oil and gas, or it could be the maker of a defective product that caused your accident.

If you were an independent contractor or another type of worker that is not eligible for Workers’ Compensation, you may be able to collect full and fair compensation through a personal injury lawsuit.

Our Laredo workplace accident attorneys will thoroughly review the facts in your case to determine who can be held responsible for your accident and injuries so that you can collect full and fair compensation.
