Workplace Injury Attorney – Anywhere in Texas
If you or a loved one have been injured in the workplace, you need a workplace injury lawyer who fights for your rights, whether your employer has workers’ compensation insurance or is self-insured. In 2012, nearly three out of 100 people were injured in workplace accidents in Texas, a rate that has remained the same over the past three years. In addition, despite the fact that deaths from workplace injuries dropped nationally, in Texas, the rate rose from 433 to 531 between 2010 and 2011.
At the Carse Law Firm, your workplace injury lawyer has one goal in mind – to help clients get the compensation that is rightfully theirs when they have been injured in an accident on the job. We also fight to get family members their rightful compensation if someone they love has died as the result of a workplace injury. An employee must be compensated for an injury on the job, regardless of whether the employer has workers’ compensation insurance or not.
Workers’ compensation insurance is regulated by the State of Texas, but it is not mandatory that employers carry the insurance. Some employers do not cover basic expenses such as medical treatments, medications or lost wages. The Carse Law Firm, your work injury lawyer, will fight for any employee that has been injured on the job, especially those whose employer does not carry workers’ compensation insurance. In many cases, employers who do not carry insurance argue that the employee was not actually hurt on the job or that the injury was the fault of the employee, thus refusing to pay the compensation the employee deserves.
A work injury lawyer can assist with many types of injuries, including repetitive motion injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injury. Some employers simply refuse to allow an injured worker to see a doctor or clinic. The Carse Law Firm can help you with locating a doctor, obtaining the necessary medical examination and all other issues that may be facing you in order to get the compensation you deserve.
In addition to helping you receive the care you need, a workplace injury lawyer from the Carse Law Firm will investigate workplace safety violations at your company and other factors that may have bearing on your injury. The experienced attorneys at the Carse Law Firm can help you navigate the entire process.
There are several types of on-the-job injury situations and forms of legal recourse that we can pursue on your behalf, including:
- Non Subscriber’s Workers Compensation: When your boss does not “subscribe” to workers comp insurance, we seek payments directly from your employer. Learn More.
- Employer Retaliation Claims: If you got fired after a job injury, we use Texas 451 Labor Code to fight for your rights. Why? Because it is unlawful to fire an employee for filing a workman’s comp claim. Learn More.
- Texas Workers Compensation Law: If your employer carries workers compensation insurance, you can make a claim after a work injury to cover a portion of your lost wages and your medical bills.
- Third-Party Workers Comp Claim: If someone outside of work is partially responsible for your job injury, you may be entitled to compensation from that individual or entity.
- Construction Accidents: A leading cause of workplace accidents, which can cause costly, catastrophic injuries. Read more.
