Dallas Work Injury Lawyers
When Employers Don't Protect Workers, We Can Hold Them Accountable.
Regardless of where you work or your regular job duties, you run the risk of being injured. According to the Burau of Labor Statistics (BLS), 214,000 workers were injured in Texas in 2018 alone. 488 lost their lives. While many of these injuries and deaths occurred in high-risk industries like construction, transportation, and manufacturing, workers in virtually all fields experienced some type of harm.
If a workplace accident or occupational disease has turned your life upside down, it may not be easy to secure fair benefits and the medical care you need. Most employers and their workers’ compensation insurance companies will actively try to avoid paying maximum benefits. They may delay payment, deny valid claims, or say that you’re okay to go back to work when you know you can’t go on like you used to.
Our firm is here to help you. This is a difficult situation, and you may feel loyalty to your employer, particularly if you’ve been there for a long time. But you need to ask yourself if you’re being treated fairly. If the answer is no, you need an attorney. A Dallas work injury lawyer who knows the system and how to protect your rights can help you get the treatment you need from the right doctor, specialist, or therapist—plus the financial support you need now and in the future.

The Most Common On-the-Job Accidents & Injuries
Whether you work at a desk most of the day or are out on a construction site, you could be injured in an accident that’s no fault of your own. Some work injuries are even caused by intentional wrongdoing, like assaults or attacks by co-workers or customers. No matter what happened, it’s important to determine who is responsible. Workers’ compensation provides benefits for work-related accidents and injuries on a no-fault basis, but you could be entitled to additional compensation.
These are several of the most common on-the-job accidents and injuries:
- Slips, trips, and falls
- Falls from heights
- Overexertion and muscle strain
- Struck by falling or flying objects
- Work-related vehicle accidents
- Exposure to toxic substances
- Exposure to loud noises
- Fires and explosions
- Electrocution/electrical injuries
- Repetitive motion injuries
If your employer was negligent, purposefully cut corners, or did anything that jeopardized your safety, we’ll find out. If a third party, like the manufacturer of a defective piece of equipment, caused you harm, we’ll uncover this. We have the resources to investigate your accident and reveal its cause.
