Skilled Legal Help For Victims Of Workplace Injuries
Many Texans are proud of the work they do and are dedicated to their employers. But if you get injured on the job, you may find that your employer doesn’t show you the same loyalty. Getting financial help after a workplace accident can feel frustrating or even impossible, because employers and their insurance companies often go to great lengths to deny claims and otherwise evade liability.
If you’ve suffered a workplace injury and aren’t sure what to do next, contact the compassionate attorneys at Ramos & Del Cueto, to learn more about how we can help you.
Does Your Employer Have Workers’ Compensation Insurance?
In most states, the majority of employers are legally required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. In exchange, they are protected against injury litigation brought by employees. This is not the case in Texas. Employers are not required to carry workers’ compensation insurance, but if they don’t have it, they can be sued by employees for on-the-job injuries.
In order to pursue either option – or even to know what your options are – it is important to work with a skilled and knowledgeable attorney like those at our firm.
How Were You Injured?
Getting hurt at work is, unfortunately, a common problem. We can help you seek coverage/compensation for nearly any work-related injury or accident, including:
- Car accidents (for commercial drivers or others who travel while on the clock)
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Electrical accidents, shocks and burns
- Construction accidents
- Injuries and amputations caused by use or malfunction of heavy equipment
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents
Don’t Wait To Seek Medical Attention And Legal Help
Work injuries need to be documented, reported and treated by a medical professional in a timely fashion. In fact, failure to follow procedures and timelines could result in loss of benefits. Therefore, it is important to know whether your employer has workers’ compensation insurance, and if so, what the reporting/treatment protocols are. After the immediate emergency has been dealt with, please discuss your case with us as soon as possible to preserve your options and legal protections.
