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 financial 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 money in the form of compensation benefits, if your injury was caused by someone other than a co-employee, you may also be entitled to recover financial payment from the responsible third-party in the accident. In addition often your employer has commercial insurance but it might not be Texas Workers’ Compensation Insurance. If that's the case, your employer may be responsible for much greater compensation for your on the job injury than what you are currently receiving. Let our lawyers help you find out!
