Nueces County Work Injury Lawyers Helping Injured Workers Receive Compensation

Multiple types of injuries can occur in the workplace. In some cases, accidents take place because of mistakes by an employee or other workers, or an employer may fail to follow safety standards or ensure that equipment is properly maintained. Injuries can also occur because of defective equipment or actions by third parties, such as contractors or suppliers. Those who are injured while working will want to understand their options, including whether they can receive workers' compensation benefits or whether they can pursue personal injury claims against any parties that were responsible for their damages.

An attorney with a strong understanding of the laws that apply to workplace injuries and the issues that affect injured workers can provide guidance on how to proceed following an injury in the workplace. The Edwards Law Firm provides legal help and representation to clients in multiple types of workplace injury cases. We help victims determine who was responsible for their injuries, the type of benefits and compensation they may be able to receive, and the steps they can take to protect their rights. With more than 100 combined years of legal experience, our lawyers can ensure that workplace injury victims receive the compensation they deserve.

Assistance With Multiple Types of Work Injuries

Depending on the circumstances surrounding a workplace injury, a person may be able to pursue compensation from multiple sources. We assist with cases involving:

  • Workers' compensation - If an employer has workers' compensation insurance, an employee will be eligible for benefits following a workplace injury, regardless of who was at fault. These benefits will cover the costs of the person's medical treatment, and a worker may also receive payments that address the loss of income due to a temporary or permanent disability.
  • Non-subscriber work injuries - Employers in Texas are not required to have workers' compensation insurance, but employees still have options in cases where an employer is a non-subscriber. In these situations, an injured worker may pursue a personal injury lawsuit against an employer and seek compensation for damages they suffered due to the employer's negligence.
  • Third-party liability - If parties other than a worker or their employer were responsible for a work-related injury, a victim may pursue compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. Liable third parties may include the manufacturer of defective equipment or a driver who was at fault for a car accident that occurred while a person was working.
  • Maritime injuries - People who are injured while working on boats, docks, shipyards, or offshore oil rigs will need to understand how state laws and maritime laws apply to their cases. We can help workers navigate the complexities of these cases and ensure that they will be able to receive the compensation they need.
  • Oil field accidents - Those who work in the oil and gas industry may experience multiple types of injuries due to fires, explosions, exposure to toxic chemicals, or other types of accidents. With our knowledge of safety regulations and other laws that apply in these cases, we can ensure that workers understand their options for pursuing compensation for their injuries.
