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

First and foremost, ensure that everyone is safe and call for medical attention if necessary.
  • 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!
You should never provide a recorded statement of facts to anyone, especially the insurance companies. They will almost always use your recorded statement against you to deny liability and monetary recovery. You should always talk to your attorney prior to giving any statement to the insurance companies and have your attorney present during the recorded statement. Most importantly, don’t provide statements of fault to anyone.
As a passenger you have the right to make a claim against any negligent driver. This may be the driver of the car you were riding or the other driver. Either of those claims would be filed against the negligent driver’s auto insurance. In the event that there isn’t enough insurance to cover for your injuries or there is no coverage, you have the option to make the claim under your insurance’s Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage (UM/UIM).
We represent clients on a contingent fee agreement for personal injury matters. This means that you don’t have to pay anything upfront and our initial consultation is completely free. Attorney fees are collected only if there is a recovery in the case. If the case is won, the attorney fees will come out of the amount recovered. Most importantly, we don’t get paid if we don’t win.

Personal injury cases handled in Texas are governed by the Civil Practice and Remedies Code. This Code provides guidance and rules regarding how the court will define and determine damages, liability, negligence, statutes of limitation, duties of care, recovery and more.

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.

Call or message today to find out how strong of a case you have against liable third parties.

No. Do not accept any settlement on behalf of an insurance adjuster without consulting with an attorney. Adjusters are paid to settle the cases for as little as possible and as quickly as possible. After an accident, the third party insurance adjuster will try to contact you and convince you to accept their minimum offer. Please don’t fall for this. If someone asks you to sign any documents you don’t fully understand, you might be signing away all your legal rights to recover the settlement you deserve.
This depends on how you handled the situation after the car accident. Texas has a statute of limitations for filing personal injury claims and there are certain requirements that need to be met. If you didn’t seek medical attention or failed to report the incident to the police or your supervisor after the accident, your case may be weakened. Calls us immediately to evaluate your case.
Your health is the most important thing. You should ask for immediate medical attention if necessary. After a doctor determines you are out of danger you should do the following:
  • 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.
  • Seek for medical attention- a physician needs to make an evaluation and recommend a treatment plan.
  • Call us- you need an experienced attorney by your side.
