Work Injuries

A Determined Houston Lawyer Will Assist You With Getting the Full Compensation Amount that You Deserve

We all want to return home from work healthy and safe, but sometimes injuries occur in the workplace due to the negligence of an employer or third party. In the greater Houston metropolitan area, we have seen tragic onthejob accidents occur at oil refineries and chemical plants. For example, in 2005, a major explosion at BP’s Texas City Refinery resulted in the deaths of 15 workers. More than 170 others were injured.

Accidents at oil refineries and chemical plants in Texas sometimes result in deaths and severe injuries. We have seen in the greater metropolitan Houston area, including Galveston and Baytown, refinery and industrial accidents such as:

Not only does a worker injured in any one of these situations have to deal with pain and suffering, but he or she may see lost wages and expensive medical bills.

Whether you’ve been hurt in Galveston, Baytown or anywhere in the greater metropolitan Houston area, we will fiercely defend your rights if you have been injured while at work. Smith & Hassler will fight for the compensation you deserve. Tell them you mean business.

If you have suffered any occupation-related injury or illness (such as asbestos poisoning, industrial machinery injuries, carpal tunnel, falls on the job or other), contact Smith & Hassler for help and guidance.

Work injuries commonly result from an employers’ failure to:

  • Supervise employees
  • Provide a safe working environment
  • Properly train employees
  • Provide employees with the safety equipment necessary to perform their jobs

It’s not only the employers who have been at fault. We have seen workers injured as a result of the negligence of a third party.

Electrocution Injuries

High voltage injuries typically cause substantial nerve damage, leading to paralysisamputation, injuries leading to blindness, and even death. You may be entitled to compensation if your electrocution injury was the result of another’s negligence.

High voltage injury cases can be complicated, as it can take significant effort to establish liability between property owner, power company, any contractor or equipment operator, and even contractors responsible for past maintenance or repairs made to the power lines in question. Our experienced attorneys know how to comb through maintenance records and other logs to get the facts that will support a client’s case.

Hospital Injuries

Hospital employees work in an environment with many unique conditions. Often equipment is left along walkways that may lead to a fall down injury. In an effort to maintain hygiene, many industrial strength cleaners and solvents are in use that could cause chemical burns. And of course there are other hazards associated with the delivery of health care, with the possibility of exposure to infectious disease or other biohazards.
