Midland-Odessa Work Accident Lawyers

Our Work Accident Lawyers Can Help You Find Answers & Recover

When Americans go to work, they should expect that they’ll be safe. Besides being the right thing to do, protecting workers is required by law and the regulations created by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Since it was created, OSHA has helped make Americans safer as they work. Since the organization was started over 4 decades ago, worker deaths have gone from 38 to 14 a day. Yet, OSHA doesn’t have the resources to ensure all employers follow the rules—and some companies try to use this to their advantage.

Filing a Claim for an Industrial Accident or Work Injury Near Midland-Odessa

First, you should find out if your employer has workers’ compensation insurance. The state of Texas is the only one in the nation that doesn’t require employers to carry this type of insurance. However, many employers in the state still carry a policy for their financially and legal protection. Finding out if your employer has workers’ compensation is important because workers have a certain amount of time to report their injuries if they wish to file a claim.

Whether your employer has insurance or not, you should call a lawyer to see if workers’ compensation or a work injury lawsuit will help you the most. Workers’ compensation payments are limited and frequently don’t account for the total financial loss created by work accidents. A personal injury lawsuit can help workers obtain the compensation they need rather than the compensation they’re offered by insurance. For example, a worker with severe burn injuries might need payment for the cost of future care and lost wages—something a typical workers’ compensation policy doesn’t cover. Our Midland-Odessa personal injury attorneys can help you consider your options and make the right choice for your unique situation.

Successful work accident cases are those that are filed because of the negligence of an employer or another party. If a worker can prove that their injuries were preventable, they can likely recover compensation.

Employer negligence can cause life-changing injuries such as:

Injured at Work? Here's What You Should Do:

  • Seek medical care. Even if you’re not sure if you’ve been injured, it’s important to visit a doctor after an accident. Besides making sure your medical needs are met, seeing a doctor helps create an early record that links any injuries you might have to your accident. Workers have the right to see the doctor that they prefer. If a company has their doctor examine you, consider getting a second opinion. Often, company doctors work in the interest of their employer and might not always provide the best advice or care.
  • Inform your employer of the accident. If your employer isn’t aware that you’ve been injured, inform them of the incident. Avoid signing any release documents they provide to you. Informing your employer of your accident will help you receive workers’ compensation benefits if possible.
  • Speak to an attorney. Even if you don’t think you have a case, speaking with an attorney is important. Work accident lawyers know the law, understand what employers are liable for, and might be able to help you obtain the compensation that you need. They’ll also help you decide if any settlement offer you’ve received is fair or designed to get your company off the hook for as little as possible.
