Work Injury Lawyers Serving Houston
Experienced personal injury lawyers who know how to get results
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, the work injury lawyers Smith & Hassler have seen tragic on-the-job accidents occur at oil refineries, chemical plants, and other businesses.
Our personal injury attorneys fight to get injured workers the compensation they deserve. Accidents at oil refineries and chemical plants in Texas sometimes result in deaths and severe injuries. We have dealt with refinery and industrial accidents in Houston, Galveston, Baytown and throughout Texas. These accidents often involve:
- Burn injuries
- Broken bones (often from heavy material being dropped)
- Slip and fall accidents
- Chemical exposure
Injured workers often must deal with pain and suffering. They might be struggling financially due to expensive medical bills and lost wages. A worker’s life—and the worker’s family life—can be turned upside-down in an instant.
Smith & Hassler fights for injured workers
When the negligence of another is responsible for injuries, a worker deserves financial compensation. The laws covering these accidents can be complicated and obtaining compensation can be difficult. Our experienced work injury attorneys understand the laws in Texas and what it takes to get results.
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 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), our attorneys can help.
Work injuries commonly result from an employer’s 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 often not only the employers who are at fault. We have seen workers injured because of the negligence of a third party.
Texas has a workers’ compensation system, but most private employers are not required to take part in it. Whether your accident was caused by negligence from an employer or a third party, we know how to take on insurance companies to get you the financial compensation you deserve for your injuries.
