Were you injured at work?
Every year thousands of workers are injured in the workplace. Certain occupations are at higher risk due to the number of hazards which are dealt with on a daily basis, such as in construction work or truck driving and other high-risk occupations. If a workplace accident is the result of another party's negligence, you may lose wages due to inability to work resulting from the accident through no fault of your own. At times, worker's compensation is not adequate to fit the needs of the injured employee and his/her family. If you have had an on-the-job accident, in Houston, it is critical that you seek assistance from a fully qualified Houston workplace accident attorney immediately so that they can review your options.
About Workplace Accidents
When a workplace accident occurs, the fault may be with the employer or a piece of equipment which is in use in the workplace. Defective equipment and products can be a source of
severe injury for an employee. Certain rules about the arrangement and proper inspection of the workplace should be maintained to minimize injuries and
wrongful deaths. If you work at a warehouse, or other area where there is cargo being stored, there are rules which apply to the stacking of these large piles of cargo and if violated, the stacks may fall injuring or even killing a person trapped below.
