OUR HOUSTON WORK ACCIDENT LAWYERS ARE ON YOUR SIDE.

When a serious workplace accident or fatal accident occurs in the workplace, it is important to speak to a Work Injury Lawyer about the incident immediately. The reason being the statute of limitations on filing a claim begins on the day you were injured. In addition, employees must be aware that your company may not always have your best interests. All too often, workers find themselves funneled to doctors whose goal is to issue a company-friendly diagnosis. Without an experienced work accident attorney on your side, you may find yourself in an uphill battle against the company’s extensive resources.

Injured workers often do not understand the complexities of the law regarding work accident attorneys in Texas; nor do they know who to turn to if they’ve been hurt. That’s why it is so important for you to call an experienced Houston work injury lawyer at Williams Hart & Boundas. This will protect you from being taken advantage of by your employer, the company-recommended doctor, or the insurance company in the aftermath of your accident.

HOW OUR WORK INJURY LAWYERS CAN HELP

Handling your workplace injury on your own can involve significant challenges. Your employer’s insurance company may ask you to submit to a medical evaluation performed by the employer’s preferred physician. Some insurance companies may offer you a settlement. Still, this figure is almost always well short of what a victim is actually entitled to.

In addition to this, they can help you advocate for the legal benefits you are entitled to. Williams Hart & Boundas can immediately begin to work with an insurer for a fair outcome. When an insurance company refuses to provide a satisfactory offer, we will file a lawsuit.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I know if I’m eligible for worker’s compensation?
Your eligibility depends on if the accident occurred at work and if the employer has purchased worker’s compensation insurance. Private employers are not required to provide worker’s compensation coverage in the state of Texas. However, even if they have purchased coverage, workers’ compensation benefits may not cover the full recovery cost. That’s when an employee would want to seek help from an attorney.
What damages can I recover from my work-related injury?
An injured worker can recover costs related to medical treatment, lost wages, and other damages. Suppose the injury was caused by a negligent third party, such as a parts manufacturer or contractor. In that case, the worker may be eligible for additional compensation.
How long do I have to file a work injury claim?
If you have a claim against your employer, it is imperative that you file within the time limit. In Texas, the statute of limitations for filing personal injury claims is two years. You should also know that the clock starts on the day of your injury.
My loved one was killed in a work accident. Can I sue for wrongful death?
Damages awarded in a Texas wrongful death case can be broken down into the following three main categories: compensation for the decedent’s losses, compensation for surviving family members’ losses, and punitive damages.

Compensation for Decedent’s Losses. Compensation that the decedent would have legally been entitled to collect from the defendant had he/she survived. Examples include compensation for:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical Expenses
  • Lost wages

Compensation for Surviving Family Member’s Losses. Compensation for the losses the surviving family members suffered as a result of the untimely death. Examples include compensation for:

  • Lost companionship, love and comfort
  • Lost care, maintenance, and support
  • Funeral Expenses
  • Loss of consortium
  • Lost inheritance

Exemplary/Punitive Damages. Suppose the wrongful death was caused by a willful act (or omission), gross negligence, or by particularly egregious behavior. In that case, the court may award exemplary damages to punish the defendant and deter others from engaging in similar behavior in the future.
