Workplace Injuries in Texas
According to the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI), Texas private industry employers reported 187,600 total recordable nonfatal workplace injuries in 2019. Of them, almost 50,000 were of a serious nature and resulted in days away from work (DAFW) (For more information, please review Document 1 and Document 2).
During that same year, the goods-producing industries reported 10,030 DAFW cases while the serving-providing industries reported 39,810 DAFW cases. Those employees occupied in building and grounds cleaning and maintenance; arts, design, entertainment, sports, and media; educational instruction and library; and sales registered fewer cases than in 2018 while those occupied in food preparation and serving and computer and mathematical occupations registered statistically significant increases when comparing 2019 to 2018.
Fortunately, relying on an experienced workplace injury attorney in Texas can help you navigate with ease the intricate personal injury case ahead if you or a loved one were injured in the workplace.

Understanding the Difference Between Workers’ Comp and a 3rd Personal Injury Lawsuit
When an injured employee files a worker’s compensation claim in Texas, not only are they required to treat with a doctor chosen by the company, but their weekly benefits will be substantially less than if they recovered damages for all of their injuries and financial losses through a personal injury lawsuit against your company or any other responsible parties.
Unlike workers’ comp, a personal injury lawsuit gives you the best chance of making a full physical and financial recovery because you can choose your preferred doctor for treatment and you are enabled to recover all of your damages—including all past and future “economic damages,” such as medical expenses and lost wages—as well as any “non-economic damages,” like pain and suffering, mental anguish, physical impairment, physical disfigurement and, in some cases, punitive damages.

Personal Injury FAQ
- Report the accident so a police officer can make an official report and investigation.
- Take the other person’s information. This includes name, address, insurance policy information, vehicle information and phone number.
- Take pictures of the accident scene and injuries (if possible). This is important to help establish responsibility of the accident and injuries.
- Never sign any documents you don’t understand. Remember insurance policies are not on your side and they will try to settle your case with the least amount possible. If they ask you to sign any documents accepting any offer, this will waive your right of getting your medical bills paid and the compensation you deserve.
- Do not admit fault if you are unsure who caused the accident. Contact us immediately at 855-900-3429. Our consultation is FREE and if we don’t win, we don’t charge you!

The Shared Fault Rule in Texas is a comparative negligence rule that determines proportionate responsibility. In short, each party may be responsible “in part” for the accident and subsequent damages and injuries. As such, liability for damages can be designated that are proportionate to the level of fault a party is responsible for.
This rule allows you to potentially collect compensation even if you were partially at fault for the accident. However, Texas adheres to a 51% bar rule, meaning that you are ineligible to collect damages for those injuries which you were 51% or more responsible for.
Our law firm knows what is needed to prove fault and get you maximum compensation. We gather the evidence needed to position your case and argument in the best possible light, ensuring the truth is presented in court.

- Report the incident to your supervisor- this is highly important because your employer might deny the accident occurred during work and claim it happened outside of work.
