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 on-the-job accidents occur at oil refineries, chemical plants and other businesses. Our workplace 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 other surrounding areas. Such accidents often involve:
- Burn injuries
- Broken bones from heavy material being dropped
- Slip and fall accidents
- Chemical exposure
Injured workers often have to 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.
Injured Workers Deserve To Be Compensated
When the negligence of another is responsible for such injuries, a worker deserves financial compensation. But the laws covering such accidents can be complicated. And obtaining compensation can be difficult. Our experienced attorneys understand the laws in Texas and what 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 or other), contact Smith & Hassler for help and guidance.
Why Workplace Accidents Happen
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 often not only the employers who are at fault. We have seen workers injured as a result 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.
Our legal team will investigate your accident to learn what really happened. We will review all relevant documents, including accident reports, medical records and safety policies. We will interview witnesses and if needed, bring in experts. Our lawyers know where to look for evidence that negligence led to your injury. We provide aggressive representation to hold negligent parties accountable.
We'll determine the true value of your claim and fight to get you financial compensation. This includes compensation for medical expenses and lost wages. It also includes compensation for other damages, such as the loss of earning ability, emotional distress and pain and suffering.
