Industrial Accident Attorneys in Houston

Workers' compensation is a form of insurance that provides wage replacement and benefits to employees who have been hurt on the job. This insurance disallows employees from suing their employer for negligence following an injury, disability, or death. However, even in states where workers' compensation is mandatory, many companies do not offer enough to cover expenses following an on-site injury. You’re still entitled to financial compensation after an industrial accident, and Davis Law Group will fight for your justice.

Types of Industrial Accidents We Deal With

Slips and Falls

Out of all the injuries that occur in an industrial environment, 16% result from some type of slip or fall. Occupations most at risk for these injuries are security workers, groundskeepers, and store clerks. Freshly mopped areas, big spills, and slippery surfaces may be to blame, especially when endured from a height. Additionally, harsh weather conditions resulting in snowy walkways, iced-over pathways, and water being tracked indoors can cause great injury.

Falling Objects

Many occupations involve the transfer and movement of stock items or vehicles. Object injuries can occur from falling stock, heavy machinery, or being physically forced against stationary furniture. Most often, heavy boxes fall off a shelf, off a moving forklift, or are dropped by an employee from the upper level of a multi-level storage facility. The impact of these objects can cause head, neck, and spine injuries, as well as death, depending on the size of the load.

Chemical Burns

Safety regulations are not always closely followed, and when chemical substances are involved, workers face deadly conditions. A lack of regulations can lead to improper material handling, storage, waste management, and personal protective equipment. Common chemical interactions come from pesticides, acids, and solvents, some of which may cause fires or explosions. Burns, rashes, throat irritation, and lung damage are suffered by those affected, and life-long neurological injuries may also arise from repeated exposure.

Improper Lifting

Physical labor jobs are demanding on the body and often require workers to engage in physical activities outside their physical capacity or energy expendability. Overexertion in physical labor jobs may result in improper lifting, awkward body positioning, and injury. Injuries typically happen when a load is primarily supported by one body part or when uneven pressure is exerted on the spine. Industry accidents include lifting truck shipments, inventory stock, heavy machinery, forklift loads, construction materials, furniture, boxes, garbage cans, and even people.

What should I do if I’m involved in an industrial accident?

After receiving immediate medical care as necessary, you should notify your boss and submit an incident report. This is essential for receiving workers’ compensation. Consult with an attorney as soon as possible so they can evaluate the consequences of your injury and how it may affect your livelihood.

What can I receive compensation for?

Workers with industrial injuries may receive compensation for medical expenses, wage loss, and decreased earning capacity. An attorney can get you and your family disability while you’re completely unable to work, which is essential for financial stability. In some states, including Texas, you can still receive compensation even if you were at fault for the injury.

Why do I need a lawyer?

When you’re the sole provider, the compensation you receive affects your economic status. You want your family supported, and we want to help. It can be difficult to receive precisely what you need from your employer, especially if they do not offer a satisfactory amount of compensation if any at all.

How long will it take to resolve my case?

On average, industrial workplace accident cases take about 1.5 years. The case length relies on many factors, including whether or not the settlement can be negotiated, if a hearing is needed, and if an appeal is filed. A longer case is not necessarily a bad one; they tend to result in higher awards.
