What Our Lawyers Can Do After a Dallas Work Injury

  • We’ll Start with a Free Work Injury Consult

    After being hurt at work by a negligent third party, you will be in pain, and your bills will begin piling up. You shouldn’t be worried about legal fees. We offer free consults, where we will listen to you and get the facts. We will ensure that you receive the necessary medical care, and start gathering evidence. From the moment you hire us, everything we do will be to hold the negligent party accountable and secure everything you deserve for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

  • You Pay Nothing Upfront

    If you were not responsible for your injuries, you should not be liable for the cost. Our Dallas lawyers want to remove your concerns – not add to them. At Anderson Injury Lawyers, there are no costs upfront because we work on a contingency basis. When you work with us after an accident on the job, you won’t owe us anything until we win you full and fair compensation.

  • We’ll Set You Up with Doctors We Trust

    If you’ve been hurt by no fault of your own, you shouldn’t be left to suffer while your case is awaiting a result. We’ll act fast to set you up with doctors who will give you the care you need when you need it. All payment is deferred until after we’ve won. These doctors will have experience treating work injuries, so they’ll know how to help.

  • We’ll Investigate Your Work Accident Right Away

    If we're going to convince an insurance company to pay what’s right after a work accident, your claims probably won’t be enough. We'll need to prove that a negligent third party was in the wrong. Since evidence like video surveillance, accident reports, skid marks, police reports, debris, vehicle damage, and other materials tend to disappear after accidents, immediate action is essential. That’s why we make investigation a priority from the start.

  • We’ll Fight the Insurance Company

    Insurance providers are known for making it hard to hold those they represent accountable after third-party work accidents. We have a deep understanding of Texas law, how to demonstrate liability, and what it takes to negotiate on behalf of injured workers. If those involved refuse to cooperate, we are not afraid to take them to court.

  • We’ll Win What You Deserve after a Work Injury

    We are know how to evaluate the value of work-related injuries in Dallas and everything that’s at stake: your physical health, your financial security, and your emotional well-being. We always pursue the maximum compensation possible and fight tirelessly for each and every client. We’ll do the same for you.

Who is Liable for an Accident at Work?

When you are hurt at work, you need to determine who was responsible for the accident, and as a result, who is liable for compensating you for your injuries. Generally, there are two options for who may be liable for a workplace injury: your employer, or a third party.

When Your Employer is Liable

Your employer is liable for your injuries if you were injured while working because of a co-worker or supervisor’s conduct. If the same business employed the party responsible for your accident and injuries, then that business is ultimately responsible.

If your employer provides you with workers’ compensation insurance and is liable for your injury, then your work injury claim will be against that insurance policy.

When a Third Party Is Liable

However, if someone from outside of your employer caused you harm, then a third party is liable for your injuries. This party could be any number of people or businesses, such as a subcontractor, another business working in the same vicinity, a pedestrian or motorist, a criminal, or a manufacturer or retailer of a defective product.

When a third party is responsible for your work accident and injury, then talk with an attorney about pursuing a third-party liability lawsuit. You can pursue compensation for additional injuries through a third-party claim, which you cannot pursue through workers’ comp.

Texas Workers’ Compensation Claims

Texas does not require most private employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance. That being said, many employers do. That is because workers’ compensation insurance covers work-related injuries and medical conditions. In exchange for workers’ comp benefits, you do not have the right to sue your employer for your injury.

After you are injured at work, you should notify your employer as soon as possible. Your employer will then notify the Texas Department of Insurance Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC). The DWC will send you a packet of information, including DWV Form-041, which is an Employee’s Claim for Compensation for a Work-Related Injury or Occupational Disease.

You must fill out Form-041 and send a copy to the DWC within one year of the date of your injury or diagnosis, otherwise, you lose your right to workers’ comp benefits.

Workers’ Compensation Benefits

Under workers’ compensation, you may receive several types of benefits, including:

  • Medical Benefits, which cover the cost of your reasonable and necessary medical care.
  • Income Benefits are a portion of your average weekly wages while you are unable to work.

If your loved one passed away due to a workplace accident, then you may receive burial benefits (which cover funeral expenses), and death benefits (which provide a portion of the lost income).

When you have any questions regarding the type of benefits you can receive, or the amount of your income benefits, call a Dallas work injury lawyer from Anderson Injury Lawyers as soon as you can.

Steps to Take After a You Are Hurt at Work

If you incurred injuries in a work-related accident, obtain medical care as soon as possible. Do not hesitate to call 911 or go to the emergency room. Your health and safety should always be your top priority. See a physician so they can examine you for relevant injuries.

If you are injured on the job, or diagnosed with an occupational medical condition, inform your employer as soon as you can. We recommend you tell a manager or supervisor in-person. Follow up in writing. If workers’ compensation insurance covers you, you may not think of immediately calling a Dallas work injury lawyer. However, by having a knowledgeable legal profession, you can be confident that your workers’ comp case gets the attention it deserves.

05

Third-Party Liability Lawsuits & Compensation

If someone from outside of your employer is liable for your injury, then talk with an attorney about filing a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party. At Anderson Injury Lawyers, we are ready and able to analyze your work accident to determine what went wrong, who is responsible, and who is liable for compensating you. When the liable party is a third party, we will explain the type of legal claim you have against them and the compensation you can pursue.

  • Past, current, and future medical expenses
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish and emotional distress
  • Disfigurement
  • Physical limitations
  • Loss of earning capacity
