If you’ve been seriously injured at your jobsite, Houston workplace accident attorney Kevin Krist can help. Hundreds of people die in Texas each year, and thousands more are seriously injured, because of occupational injuries. In many cases, an injured worker or a deceased worker’s family can sue the employer or other responsible parties if they caused the workplace accident – holding those at fault responsible and helping provide financial security for accident victims and their loved ones.
If you or a family member have suffered a serious workplace injury and you believe the injury was someone else’s fault, it’s important to contact a skilled, experienced Texas personal injury attorney right away.
Skilled And Experienced Representation Counts In Texas Workplace Injury Claims
Diligent Texas workers suffer serious and deadly workplace injuries far too often. Some of the widely-recognized categories of accidents include:
- Contact with objects and equipment at the worksite, including being struck by heavy loads, crushed by powerful vehicles and tools, and being caught or pulled into moving industrial parts
- Falls, as from ladders, roofs, and scaffolding
- Exposure to harmful substances or environments, such as being electrocuted, or poisoned or burned by toxic chemicals
- Transportation accidents, including workers being struck by moving vehicles or suffering a vehicle collision
- Fires and explosions
- Assaults and violent acts by others
Unlike all other states, Texas does not require that larger employers buy state-regulated workers’ compensation insurance. Instead, employers can “opt out” of workers’ compensation coverage and “go bare” – and the number of employers doing so is increasing. That means those employers can be sued for work-related injuries, unlike employers who participate in the workers’ compensation system. In addition, injured workers can seek compensation from third parties who may be responsible for causing a workplace injury.
If you or a loved one have suffered a serious workplace injury, it’s very important to have a proven Texas personal injury attorney such as Kevin Krist evaluate your case. A seasoned, skilled personal injury attorney can advise you about whether you have a claim for compensation against an employer or another party.
As a serious workplace injury victim, you or your loved one may be entitled to recover substantial damages.
