Work Injury Lawyer
Following your work-related injury, you may be left with many questions but few answers. Your employer may be doing everything possible to minimize its liability, and you may have discovered that your employer did not subscribe to workers’ compensation often referred to as nonsubscriber, or self insured. You may be fighting against a system that isn’t enough to fully compensate you for your losses.
If a third party (that is, someone other than your direct employer) engaged in any negligent actions that resulted in your injuries, you may have options in the legal system beyond workers’ comp. Our Texas personal injury law firm handle these so-called third-party negligence claims to help clients throughout the Metroplex get full and fair compensation anytime they are injured through no fault of their own. You didn’t ask to get hurt on the job, and you didn’t ask to deal with the financial aftermath. Our firm can help you pick up the pieces and get the compensation you deserve.
For a no-cost, no-obligation consultation with a lawyer, call (817) 659-1133 now. We are paid only if we win your case.
Learn If You May Be Able To File A Third-Party Claim
There are a million and one ways to get hurt on the job. Some are purely accidental, and the workers’ compensation system is designed to provide financial relief to workers who are injured as a result of many types of workplace accidents, even those that may involve negligence on the part of a direct employer.
Many other accidents, however, involve third parties, and in these cases it may be possible to use the civil litigation process to obtain additional compensation. Examples of third-party negligence include:
- The manufacturer of defective industrial equipment that malfunctions and causes injury
- Careless behavior on the part of construction subcontractors that causes an accident
