Houston Workplace Injury Lawyers
Protecting Injured Workers throughout Texas
We see it on the news all the time: A tragic workplace accident claims the lives of employees or leaves them with lifelong disabilities. Despite the "safety-first" motto of most employers, accidents still happen, especially in jobs that involve inherent dangers.
At McDowell Law Group LLP, we represent workers who have been injured in:
- Construction accidents
- Drilling rig blowouts
- Heavy equipment accidents
- Oil rig explosions
- Refinery and rig accidents
When you retain our Houston work injury attorneys, we take the time to carefully investigate the accident and to consult with other experts who can contribute to your case. With McDowell Law Group LLP on your side, you can confidently seek the compensation you deserve.
Workers' Compensation May Not Be Your Only Option
After suffering an injury at work, you might seek benefits through the Texas workers’ compensation system. This can be a good place to start, but did you know that you might also be entitled to significant financial compensation through a personal injury claim? In fact, you might receive far more through an injury claim than a workers’ compensation claim.
In Texas, private employers are not required to carry workers’ compensation insurance coverage. If your employer does not participate in the workers’ compensation program, a personal injury claim may be your only way to seek justice for an accident involving negligence.
Representing Workers in Hazardous Industries
The majority of work-related accidents happen in hazardous industries such as manufacturing, oil and gas, and construction. Whether you were injured by heavy machinery, dangerous equipment, an oil rig explosion, or some other type of hazard, McDowell Law Group LLP is ready to fight for you.
We routinely handle cases involving workers injured by:
- Defective products
- Toxic substances
- Third party negligence
By filing a work injury claim, you may be able to recover compensation for the expenses you have incurred, including your medical bills, lost wages, and damaged property. You can even be compensated for things like your pain and suffering, your loss of enjoyment, and your emotional distress.
