Determined Advocates Seeking Workers’ Compensation Death Benefits for You

If a family member or loved one is killed on the job, you are entitled to death benefits under the workers’ compensation laws. These death benefits exist to provide monetary benefits to you, the surviving spouse or child of the deceased. In terms of actual amount and length of payments, these workers’ compensation death benefits differ from a typical workers’ compensation injury claim.

It is important to understand that these death benefits are not putting a price on your loved one’s life, but are instead meant to help financially support you while you adjust to your loss. To learn more, contact our firm.

Workers’ Compensation & On The Job Injuries

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.

We handle a wide variety of worker’s compensation claims, including those involving injuries to the spine, neck, back (including herniated or compressed discs), shoulder, lower back, knee, head, legs, wrists, shoulders, fingers (particularly crush injuries and amputations) and feet. We also represent clients who have lost a family member in a fatal work injury.
