Throughout Texas, workers suffer on-the-job injuries every single day. Regardless of industry, workers are often at risk of an accident, which can result in devastating injuries or fatalities. A workplace incident is any injury or death that occurs while an employee is in the course of their employment. From car and truck accidents to slips and falls to construction site accidents, an injury while working can change an employee’s life forever. 

Following an on-the-job injury, workers and their families struggle with lost wages and an array of expenses associated with medical care, funeral costs, and pain and suffering. Often, workers’ comp insurance coverage is not sufficient to cover these costs, leaving workers financially affected for years to come. Filing a work injury claim can help victims get compensation to help cover these extra costs.

What to Know About Work Injury Cases 

Workplace injuries encompass a wide range of physical injuries that can have a considerable impact on a victim’s life. They may temporarily prevent victims from working or may leave victims with a permanent disability, unable to work in the same field or at all. This can negatively affect the victim’s quality of life and their ability to support their family. 

Work injury attorneys often take on a wide range of lawsuits in this area, including but not limited to:

  • Construction site injuries. As a construction worker injured on the job, you may face a lifetime of medical bills. Work injury lawyers can help you recover benefits to rebuild financially, physically, and emotionally.
  • Industrial vehicle accidents. Injured while operating an industrial rig? A legal team can help prove the full extent of your injuries to fight for fair benefits. 
  • Maritime injuries. The BP Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion is one example of how devastating maritime injuries can be. If you’ve been injured as a maritime worker, work accident lawyers can help.
  • Oil and gas refinery explosions. Working at a refinery can be dangerous, and an explosion or fire is the most dangerous situation of all. Work injury lawyers can help injured workers and the families of workers who have lost their lives in these accidents.

Why Hire a Work Injury Lawyer to Help with Your Case?

After a workplace injury, victims are often left with large expenses related to their injury and recovery. Most companies will claim that workers’ compensation insurance is sufficient to cover expenses related to an employee’s workplace accident. However, that is not always the case. 

Depending on state laws regarding workers’ compensation insurance requirements and minimums, some employers may only offer subpar coverage. Others may only have ghost policies or proof of workers’ comp coverage that doesn’t offer any actual coverage at all. Even worker’s compensation insurance plans that are adequate still may cover only up to a certain amount. Regardless of existing workers’ comp coverage, many injured employees find themselves facing mounds of expenses that workers’ compensation does not cover. 

It can be very difficult to seek reimbursement for these damages when you are injured or ill and do not have assistance from an experienced attorney. It can also be difficult to obtain the compensation you deserve if you do not have all the necessary information regarding your case, such as what counts as an on-the-job injury. A work injury lawyer can help you navigate the complexities of your workplace injury claim.

In some cases, workplace injuries are the result of negligence from a third party. A work accident lawyer can help you determine liability and take legal action against the proper at-fault party.

The car accident I had with my 5 year old daughter was one of the most horrific moments and experiences of my life. Fortunately, she was not injured but I had some back issues. I was living in McAllen at the time, but it was actually another attorney that recommend me to Mr. Lopez. Unlike other Attorneys or law groups, Mr. Lopez is more hands on when it came to taking care of my back issues. . His paralegals and secretaries Veronica and Giselle were always helpful. I never felt like I was bothering them and I always had very prompt if not immediate responses. My friend told me that it would take a long time to settle with an insurance company, but Mr. Lopez and his team were able to get money in my pocket within months. My car was completely fixed and they helped with a rental car as well. I was able to go to rehab, pain doctors and chiropractors until I felt better. This group and Mr, Lopez personally, were truly concerned with my well-being , health and compensation. I have recommended Mr. Lopez to all of my friends and family. They have all been grateful for my recommendations. I highly recommend Mr. Lopez as his office is smaller yet as strong or stronger as law offices that are located in San Antonio and Dallas

After doing a lot of research on attorneys in the area of Hidalgo County I chose The Lopez law firm. This was the first time I needed to consult any attorney. When I first consulted with Mr. Lopez and his team I never imagine my case would run only for one year. I am glad I chose Mr. Lopez as my attorney. He fought hard for my case. He was always very willing to meet my needs. At the end my case was won. If I ever need from them again I know they will be eager to help. Thank you Mr. Lopez and the Lopez law firm.
