San Antonio Work Accident Lawyers

Top-Rated Work Injury Attorneys Serving San Antonio & All of Texas

Every year, millions of work accidents affect workers’ lives and livelihoods. According to OSHA, there were nearly 3 million workplace accidents and 5,486 workplace fatalities reported in 2022. Suffering an accident on the job subjects workers to physical, mental, and financial hardships. If you or a loved one were injured in a workplace accident, you have the right to seek full compensation for your losses. Your employers’ insurance company’s main priority is not to help you recover from your injuries, but to reduce the company’s liability. Your employer is likely already working to prevent you from filing a lawsuit or is figuring out a way to weaken your case—even if their carelessness caused your accident.

Facts About Work Accidents Across the Nation

Research demonstrates that illnesses and injuries frequently occur in the workplace.

  • Over 24,000 workers sustain serious injuries, and 803 of them are killed because of workplace violence.
  • Fall protection and prevention was the most violated OSHA standard in 2022.

Common Causes of San Antonio Work Accidents

Negligent or inexperienced employers cause most workplace accidents. Negligent employers and even co-workers can put other workers in danger—especially if they fail to provide a safe working environment.

Many forms of negligence can result in injuries, including:

  • Equipment Failure: Some of the most dangerous equipment is usually industrial and electrical equipment.
  • Falling Objects and Flying Debris: Falling debris can cause serious injuries, especially head injuries. These commonly occur on construction sites, logging sites, factories, warehouses, and shipyards.
  • Failure to Comply with Safety Regulations: OSHA has standards to help keep workers safe. Employers must obey these regulations in the workplace. When they don't, they can be held liable for the accidents they cause.
  • Inadequate Inspections: Inspections should be performed on a regular basis to ensure equipment is working correctly and to reduce possible risk. Employers should inspect equipment such as ladders, scaffolds, and derricks.
  • Insufficient Training: Employers are required to provide workers with adequate safety training, so they can identify potential hazards in the workplace and know how to avoid them.
