Texans work hard. Whether your job is on a factory floor or construction site, in an office or cubicle, behind a counter or at the wheel, you expect to be compensated fairly for your time, effort, and commitment. If you get hurt on the job, as millions of Americans do every year, you also expect your employer to meet their obligations under the law to help you get back on your feet and back to work.
Sometimes, however, a company may not take care of its injured workers as it should. It may not have the workers’ compensation insurance required under Texas law. And even if a company does carry workers’ compensation insurance, it may challenge a worker’s right to benefits and medical care. Other times, a third party – like the manufacturer of a defective piece of equipment or another person’s negligence on the job – causes a worker’s injuries and may be held liable for those injuries and losses.
No matter what you do for a living and no matter how you got hurt on the job or the nature of your injuries, the Austin work injury attorneys at Sandoval & James, will work as hard as you do to help you and your family after a workplace accident.
