Galveston Personal Injury Attorneys

As a major shipping port and tourist destination for the state of Texas, Galveston offers a variety of employment opportunities for residents of this historic city. However, serious injury can strike any one of us at any time, causing devastating consequences.

  • Injuries on the job or on the road can result in lost wages, extended recovery periods and long-term negative effects on individuals and families.
  • Hurricanes and other extreme weather can result in major property damage for families in the path of these dangerous storms.
  • Defective products can cause serious, life-altering injuries for which manufacturers, distributors or retailers may be held to account.
  • Medical errors and the past, present and future losses and damages associated may be recoverable with a solid legal team on your side.

Solution to Work Injury Losses in Galveston

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) establishes and enforces safety standards for work environments throughout the country and conducts investigations when necessary to protect the welfare of workers. On Dec. 2, 2010, OSHA cited U.S. Minerals in Galveston for an extensive range of safety issues, including:

  • Willful failure to provide proper fall protection on elevated platforms and loading docks
  • Failure to provide emergency pull cords to stop conveyor belts
  • Lack of fire extinguishers in areas where combustible materials were routinely stored
  • Use of damaged metal ladders
  • Failure to cover chute floors

OSHA's initially proposed penalties for these violations added up to $273,000. However, the cost to workers who might have been injured in this unsafe working environment would likely have been much higher.
