Texas Workers Compensation Attorneys
If you have been injured on the job, you have options for recovering damages. Unlike a traditional personal injury suit where you have to prove negligence in order to recover, in a worker’s compensation claim, you only have to prove that you were injured in a work-related accident.
If you have been injured in a workplace accident in Texas and want to speak with an attorney to learn more about your rights, contact an attorney at our firm. We are based in Huntsville and represent people throughout Texas in workers’ compensation claims. We can help with initial applications and if you have been denied benefits, we can handle your workers’ compensation appeal.
Your Employer May Not Retaliate Against You
Sometimes, employees worry that their employer may get upset and retaliate against them if they file for workers’ compensation benefits. It is important to understand that a workers’ compensation claim is a statutorily protected right, and it not the same as a personal injury lawsuit.
Workers’ compensation claims are similar to insurance claims. You are not saying that your employer was negligent, necessarily. Rather, you are simply saying that you have a work-related injury and need financial assistance. Texas state law prohibits employers from retaliating against employees who file a valid work comp claim.
We Handle All Injuries
Our attorneys have handled hundreds of work comp claims and appeals. We can help if you have been injured as a result of a job site injury, fall, vehicle accident, machine injury or tool/equipment injury, lifting injury, construction site accident, falling object, fire, explosion or any other type of workplace injury.
