Dallas-Fort Worth Workplace Injury Lawyers
work injury lawyer

Each year, thousands of Texas workers suffer work injuries due to accidents on the job, exposure to hazardous chemicals, workplace falls, and a host of other causes. More work injuries occur in Texas than any state in the country, including injuries in workplaces throughout Dallas, Fort Worth and Houston. According to the latest Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) figures, nearly 250,000 work-related injuries and illnesses were reported in our state in a single year. More than half of those cases resulted in days away from work, job transfers or restrictions on the workers’ activity.

The unfortunate outcome of work injuries is often expensive medical bills and lost income. When employers have workers’ compensation insurance, injured employees may file a workers’ compensation claim to offset these costs. But what if your employer does not carry workers’ compensation insurance or someone other than your employer is responsible for your work injuries? Despite the clear statistics of the prevalence of work injuries in Texas, the state does not require employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance. However, you may still have legal options available to you to seek fair compensation after you are injured on the job.

Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to file a claim against your employer or a responsible third party to seek compensation for your injuries.
