Legal Help After a Texas Workplace Accident

Be Aware of Insurance Company Tactics
The months and even years following an accident on the job are often overwhelming for an injured worker and his or her family. Right after an accident, insurance companies may contact an injured worker. If possible, your lawyer may be able to speak to insurance companies on your behalf so as to relieve you of some stress and preserve the scope of your case should you choose to file a claim or lawsuit.
It is not out of the ordinary for some insurance companies to offer injured workers much lower settlement amounts than the worker may need to offset the severity of damages suffered. Insurance companies may also try to delay, manipulate, or deny a rightful claim.
What About Texas Workers’ Comp?
Although workers’ compensation may be applicable and helpful for some workplace accidents, the compensation offered may not come close to what an injured worker actually needs. In addition, there may be multiple parties responsible for the workplace injury, illness, or death, in which having a Texas on the job injury lawyer on your side may make a world of difference in your case outcome.
Getting the Money You Deserve
The cost of recovering from injuries and/or illnesses that occur while at work can be extremely high. When negligence or oversight causes a worker harm, those responsible may be held accountable not only to help offset the expenses a worker must now deal with, but also to prevent other workers from similar harm.
Compensation may be awarded for medical expenses; loss of past and future income and benefits; pain and suffering; loss of consortium; emotional distress; and other damages. Because workplace accidents often do not only affect the worker, but also his or her family, legal action can bring much relief and closure so that a fresh start can help a person or their family to rebuild.
