Work-Related Injury Lawyers in Waco, TX

Two Million Texans Are Injured in Workplace Accidents Every Year

Texas is a large state with a growing economy. That’s great for workers, and it’s great for employers. It means there are always jobs, and those jobs pay pretty well.

But more workers means more accidents. And more accidents mean more workplace injuries.

When workers in Texas get injured, they often don’t have a lot of recourse. If your employer maintains worker’s comp insurance, you can file under that.

Unfortunately, worker’s comp isn’t a requirement in Texas, and employers don’t get a policy to save some money.

Without worker’s compensation, the only thing a worker in Texas can do is file a personal injury claim.

Biggs & Greenslade can help you make the right choice to ensure you don’t suffer after getting hurt at work.

Contact our offices today to schedule a consultation to discuss your injury and how we can help.

Why Should I Hire a Workplace Injury Lawyer?

If you’re injured on the job, chances are you’re facing big medical bills while unable to work. No one wants to be in that position.

Injured workers don’t have many options. They can file a worker’s compensation claim or a personal injury lawsuit.

Unfortunately, Texas doesn’t require employers to maintain worker’s compensation insurance. Most employers don’t have it, and even if they do, a lot of them don’t want their insurance premiums to go up.

Employers frequently fight workplace injury claims no matter what kind they are. If you were injured at work, the workplace injury attorneys at Biggs & Greenslade can help you go over your options.

The Most Difficult Part of Workplace Injuries

You may like your employer. Your employer may like you, too. That often changes after a workplace injury, and it surprises a lot of our clients.

Employers don’t want to pay for those injuries. Even if they are responsible for it, employers fight to avoid paying anything.

Most of our clients are surprised by how much their employers fight the claim. They’ll resort to cruel, unfair, and sometimes illegal techniques like

  • Refusing all liability for the accident and blaming the employee
  • Punishing the employee–up to and including trying to fire them
  • Making it difficult for the employee to visit their doctor or hire a lawyer
  • Falsifying–or deleting–key evidence
  • And more

These actions destroy any trust and goodwill you and your employer may have had once. It’s also a lot more common than you think it is.

Biggs & Greenslade can help. As experienced workplace injury lawyers, we can advise you so that you avoid the worst pitfalls.

Common Workplace Accidents

Vehicle Accidents

Vehicle collisions and other accidents are by far the most common cause of workplace injuries and, just like car accidents outside of work, can be devastating to the victims.

Forklift Accidents

Forklifts are dangerous pieces of equipment, and sometimes drivers cut corners to load pallets more quickly. Sometimes, that leads to an accident.

Heavy Equipment Accidents

Industrial accidents can be brutal, often resulting in damage that changes the rest of your life. The industrial accident lawyers at Biggs & Greenslade can help.

Slips & Falls

Minor falls can cause major injuries. In some workplaces, these falls may be from high up. Biggs & Greenslade will ensure that you have the compensation to recover.

Safety Violations

Sometimes employers cut corners to save some money. Safety rules are there for a reason, and you have a right to file a claim if you get injured because of a protocol violation.

And More

Workplace injuries can vary as much as the workplaces themselves. If you were injured at work, we’ll help you find the responsible party so you can file a claim.
