WORK RELATED INJURIES

In 2007, over 4 million workplace related injuries occurred, including 5,488 that resulted in death. Employees who are injured while at their workplace are entitled to compensation for their
injuries and suffering and in the case of a fatal injury, families may also be entitled to compensation. Depending on the circumstances surrounding their workplace injury, employees
may be entitled to compensation through either through the workers' compensation program, a
personal injury lawsuit, or both.

Even if you are receiving compensation benefits, if your injury was caused by someone other than a co-employee, you may also be entitled to recover from the responsible third-party. In addition, often your employer has insurance, but it is not Texas Workers’ Compensation Insurance, and your employer may be responsible for much greater compensation for your injuries than what you are currently receiving.

Workplace injuries arise from simple negligence, but also result from poor management decisions, lack of safety procedures or improper use or maintenance of equipment.

The Board Certified attorneys of Patton, Nix & Young have recovered settlements and verdicts for their clients in cases involving cranes, aerial devices (also called bucket trucks), electrical injuries, explosions, and dangerous work sites.

If you have suffered a serious workplace injury, you should seek the advice of an attorney that is recognized for his experience and expertise in personal injury and wrongful death cases. Contact us today to speak with a Board Certified Specialist. We want to help you.
