Why Should I Hire a Workplace Accident Attorney?

In the state of Texas, an injured employee really only has two options to get compensation for their injuries.

If their employer maintains worker’s compensation coverage, they can file a claim with it. This will provide them with money for medical bills and other necessities.

Unfortunately, Texas doesn’t require business owners to have WC coverage. This means that very few do, electing to risk a lawsuit should an employee get hurt on the job.

The only other way you can get your medical bills covered is to hire a work injury lawyer and file a personal injury claim.

At your initial consultation, the work injury attorneys at Biggs & Greenslade will help you identify your options and find the best path forward for you.

Workplace Injuries Can Destroy Working Relationships

One of the most difficult aspects of a workplace injury is how it affects your relationship with your employer. A lot of employers will fight any accident claim, resorting to unfair and cruel tactics like

  • Refusing all blame for the accident
  • Retaliating against the employee, including termination of employment
  • Preventing employees from hiring attorneys or visiting doctors
  • Falsifying evidence to refute claims
  • And more

It can feel wrong to file a personal injury claim against a company you’ve happily worked with for years. Unfortunately, your employer may not share your hesitancy.

A work injury lawyer can help you understand what you can and cannot do. During your free consultation, the attorneys at Biggs & Greenslade will help you understand your options so you can make the best choice for you.
