Have you been seriously injured at work due to unsafe working conditions?

Unfortunately, Texas has some of the least favorable laws when it comes to getting hurt at work.  There are millions of workplace injures and illnesses due to working conditions reported each year nationwide.  If you have been seriously injured or have gotten sick due to something at work, it may be a good idea to seek the advice of a personal injury lawyer that understands workers compensation as well as being able to fight the company’s insurance companies if need be.

Houston has many refineries and chemical plants as well as a robust construction industry.  Accidents happen everyday, but when it results in serious injury, then the typical procedures that companies have in place may not offer adequate compensation.  Additionally, if the injury was a result of unsafe work conditions due to the negligence of the company then it can mean further compensation for your pain and suffering.
