Workplace Injuries

The workplace is a dangerous place loaded with risks. Even in workplace environments with fewer risks, injuries on the job do occur. If you have been hurt on the job, one of the first issues you will likely encounter is workers compensation. However, while your injuries may be covered, you may be entitled for additional compensation beyond what workers comp provides. And what if your employer doesn’t have workers compensation insurance? What if an employee was negligent? What if the equipment malfunctioned? Not only are you injured, you may have a legal case. Regardless of the circumstances, Brownsville attorneys are available to help you navigate the complexities surrounding your claim. You do not need to suffer alone.

Deciding to pursue legal action isn’t a decision to be made lightly. Call a Brownsville attorney and explore your options. Together, we can determine whether pursuing action against your employer, an equipment manufacturer, or even a co-worker is the right choice given the circumstances. We’ll look at your injuries, how they were caused, your long term prognosis, expenses, and other factors as well as explore current laws and past cases. We are experienced Brownsville attorneys who can help you with:

  • Workers comp claims
  • Claims above and beyond workers comp claims

We understand workplace safety issues and the laws and regulations governing the workplace. We also understand that not only is your injury devastating now, it could be financially devastating in the future. If your livelihood is at stake, you need Brownsville attorneys who will aggressively work to ensure your future.

Many workers are embarrassed by their on-the-job injuries, often shouldering the blame unnecessarily. Don’t blame yourself for someone else’s carelessness or negligence. Let qualified Brownsville attorneys investigate on your behalf. Someone else may be liable for your injuries. For example, if you cut yourself on a piece of equipment that you were not properly trained to use, your employer may be liable. It’s difficult for the average worker to see the larger legal picture and it’s easy to settle for whatever’s offered. However, experienced attorneys handle workplace injuries regularly and we are far better equipped to determine who should be held responsible for your injuries. Let us put our workplace safety expertise to work for you.
