Texas Work-Related Injury Lawyers
According to Texas state and federal law, each employer has a legal obligation to provide and maintain a safe work place for employees. If you are injured on the job, typically your employer has workers' compensation
insurance, which will provide you with benefits to pay for medical care and to make up for your lost income.
Even if you are not covered by workers' compensation insurance, you may have a negligence claim against your employer if the firm failed in its responsibility to maintain a safe workplace. The Gertz Law Firm can also represent you in an OSHA accident claim
Do You Have a Third Party Claim?
When a workplace injury is caused by a third party, such as a contractor or vehicle driver not employed by your company, you have a third party liability claim. This may enable you to obtain additional compensation for losses such as your emotional distress, loss of enjoyment and your full loss of income. In many cases, this compensation can exceed the value of the workers' compensation benefits you are entitled to.
The Gertz Law Firm is experienced in cases involving both a workers' compensation and a third-party claim. The firm will work to maximize the compensation you receive from all sources.
