When most people think of workplace accidents, they think of one thing: workers’ compensation. But the truth is that not every workplace injury is resolved by a work comp claim. There are plenty of situations in which workplace injuries lead to personal injury lawsuits — and many of these end with injured workers collecting substantial settlements or jury verdicts because of the harm they have experienced.
The workplace injury attorneys at the Fort Worth law firm of The Jim Ross Law Group, P.C., represent injured workers in personal injury litigation related to injuries that occurred on the job. In some of these cases, workers also pursue workers’ compensation claims while we work on their personal injury lawsuits. In others, no work comp claim is filed.
Serving injured workers and their families throughout Texas, we handle personal injury and wrongful death cases involving almost any profession or any workplace. Our clients have worked on construction sites, in warehouses, at factories and on industrial job sites. They have worked as delivery drivers, sales people, waiters and waitresses and in professional practices.
Our workplace injury attorneys have what it takes to effectively handle cases no matter where you worked or how seriously you were injured. Our Fort Worth work accident attorneys commonly handle cases based on many different types of accidents, including the ones listed below:
- Scaffolding accidents
- Accidents caused by heavy equipment such as backhoes, bulldozers, cranes, forklifts and tractors
- Common construction accidents such as falling objects, fires and explosions, slips and falls and overexertion
- Exposure to toxic mold, asbestos, pesticides or other harmful chemicals
Each situation is unique. Your co-workers are probably full of advice about how you should proceed, but what’s right for you depends on the facts of your case. And it’s impossible for the facts of your case to be exactly like the facts of another injured co-worker’s case. Before taking action, it’s best to speak with our lawyers about what is right for you.
