Severely Injured at Work? Call Us

Certain industries such as construction, oil field and offshore maritime work, and various other occupations in which the worker is continuously exposed to toxic chemicals, have a high risk of severe or permanent injury. In fact, one can be severely injured in almost any profession.

At the Lenahan Law Firm, we have achieved significant victories for the injured and their families throughout our years in practice. We can evaluate your situation to determine what could be done to pursue compensation in your case. You have a right to get workers' compensation benefits, but in many cases, after our legal team has reviewed the case, we discover that there has been a third party, such as equipment manufacturers or others, that also carry liability for your injuries. We represent individuals in injury claims, as well as class action claims in the Dallas area.

If you were seriously injured or a loved one was killed in a workplace accident, it is imperative that you seek legal counsel from a Dallas injury lawyer at the Lenahan Law Firm by calling (214) 295-1008.

The Dangers of Failing to Follow Safety Regulations

In many tragic workplace accidents, the underlying cause is found to be a failure to comply with safety regulations. When this is the case, the corporation that endangered you or your loved one must be held accountable for their negligence. In many cases, the injuries were entirely preventable had the regulations protecting the safety of workers been followed.

Safety regulations do not just apply to employers, however. Construction companies, maintenance providers, and oil refineries are expected to follow all the regulations outlined by the Occupational Hazard and Safety Administration (OSHA), but property owners also share responsibility for making sure workers are safe. If a construction crew is renovating the floor of an office building, then they should expect the building to be free of any safety hazards beyond those they are attending to. If a worker trips and falls down a flight of stairs due to a broken light, or faulty electrical wiring injures a carpenter, then that worker may have a premises liability claim against the property owner. It is the duty of property owners to make sure a job site is free of foreseeable hazards and inspect all areas to ensure workers are not injured or killed. If a property owner fails in this duty, a worker may be able to pursue a third-party claim against them.

What Are Your Options After a Workplace Accident

In the state of Texas, anyone classified as a part-time or full-time worker is eligible for workers’ compensation, which allows him or her to recover financial damages for any injury or illness suffered at work. This can include accidents caused by supervisors violating safety guidelines, mistakes made by other workers, or injuries caused by third parties or equipment manufacturers. For example, if a construction worker was driving between job sites and was injured in a car accident, then he may be able to file for workers’ compensation. So long as you were on the job while you were injured, then you are eligible to recover your medical bills and lost wages through workers’ compensation.

However, workers’ compensation does not always cover the full costs of an injury and does limit the liability of employers. Even if your injuries were caused by a negligent supervisor or company you worked for, you cannot file a personal injury claim for damages if you are covered under workers’ compensation. Workers’ compensation is also not available for contractors, but, as non-subscribers, contractors may be able to file third-party claims against their employers if the employers injured them through an act of negligence.

It is important to review every party involved in your accident for liability. Even if you are covered by workers’ compensation, you may be able to file a personal injury claim if a third-party contributed to your accident. Third-parties can include:
