Have you been injured on the job and don’t know what to do?
Did you know there were approximately 2.9 million nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses in 2016? Of those 2.9 million roughly 5,190 were fatal while another 10,000 American workers fell victim to an amputation injury. This is all despite the growing list of U.S. Department of Labor mandates regarding safety equipment use in the workplace. No one goes to work expecting to get injured but it happens way more often than you think.

Whether you’re a skilled laborer or work at a desk all day, getting injured while on the job can be devastating. Lost wages and missed bills can cause all sorts of financial difficulties especially if you're also managing debt. The stresses of dealing with everyday life are more than enough as it is. Imagine if you're wages suddenly plummeted due to a workplace injury that your employer doesn't want to pay for. Between the rehab and the lower (or suddenly non-existent) wages, you and your family would endure undue stress mentally, physically, and financially.
Work should be an environment you go to that is safe and collaborative, not dangerous. Unfortunately, this isn't always how it plays out especially in the age of rapid technological growth and start ups that get funding from investors who want results now!
The more cases we handle the more we realize that most workplace injuries happen as a result of employers or contractors trying to increase profits by lowering safety standards. Deadlines are then forced and important details are missed which increases the risk of being injured drastically.
If you’ve been injured in the workplace, whether you live in Dallas or Lake Charles, give us a call right away for a free consultation. Our plan is to make sure you’re compensated for lost wages and then go after punitive damages so your employer understands where they went wrong and you're reimbursed accordingly. Our goal for each case is to not only get you the most money possible but also send a message to the industry that shortcuts will not be tolerated.
