Work Injury

Do You Have an Underlying Personal Injury Case?

According to statistics compiled by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), nearly 3 million individuals are injured or experience illnesses directly related to their job each year in the U.S. In many of these cases, negligence on the part of the employer or unsafe working conditions are significant contributing factors to workplace accidents and injuries.

League City and Greater Houston Work Injuries and Claims

Large-scale industrial accidents and railroad accidents often grab significant public attention, and our team has substantial experience representing victims of these catastrophic accidents. We also know how to maximize recoveries for our clients who have fallen victim to several other types of workplace accidents that are more common and can result in life-altering consequences:

  • Exposure to toxic substances and resulting medical issues
  • Muscle strains and ligament tears due to overexertion or overuse
  • Slip-and-fall injuries
  • Falls from altitude, especially in areas without fall protection measures
  • Violent or aggressive behavior by co-workers or guests in the work site
  • Injuries involving machinery
  • Repetitive stress disorder

Many of these incidents could be avoided through a comprehensive set of best practices and safety rules enforced by the employer in the working environment. Incorporating OSHA-required protection equipment and protocols into all activities can reduce the potential for serious injuries and fatalities at any workplace. The ongoing focus on the construction, industrial, railroad, petroleum and mining industries is of particular importance.
