Preeminent Attorney Representing Injured Workers in

Houston and Throughout Texas

Houston has a very high percentage of on-the-job injuries per worker. Despite the best efforts of OSHA, the number of injuries and fatalities in the workplace continues to grow each year.

What justice is in each individual case is going to depend upon the cause of the accident, the insurance coverage available, and the negligence on the part of another.

Workers’ compensation generally is the sole remedy for claims against an employer in the state who has worker’s compensation insurance in force and covering the worker. There are exceptions when a worker is killed and the conduct of the employer or fellow employees are willful or outrageous such that a claim of gross negligence for punitive damages can be brought.

There are also situations where there is “fake” worker’s compensation which is not a recognized plan within the state of Texas for the Worker’s Compensation Commission. Many of these plans purport to waive important rights of the injured worker and the victim should consider consulting with an experienced attorney before signing any documents proffered by the employer or their insurers.

Don’t Sign Anything

If you have been the victim of a workplace injury, the accident should be documented by the employer however, the injured worker should not give a statement or sign documents sent to them by an insurance company unless they have consulted with a personal injury attorney first.
