Industrial Accident Compensation
After an accident, you might be so badly hurt that it affects your whole life. You might be wondering what industrial accident compensation you are entitled to. Here is what you need to know.
Industrial Accident Compensation | Injuries
Industrial accidents can occur almost anywhere, like an oil rig, a road, a refinery, a factory, a ship or a construction site. But no matter where they take or what causes the accident, industrial workers can experience any type of injury imaginable, including:
- Loss of body parts
- Electrical, chemical or fire burns
- Serious illness, such as cancer
- Broken bones
- Loss of one’s senses, such as sight or hearing
- Back injuries
Industrial Accident Compensation | Entitled to Workers’ Compensation
For many clients who are injured at industrial sites, their employers do have Workers’ Compensation. The next question that needs to be answered is whether their injury was caused by some other contractor, a third-party who caused their injuries by which they can also seek a different claim against them for their injuries. That’s part of the investigation that needs to be done by the lawyer to seek full industrial injury workers’ compensation.
Industrial Accident Compensation | Employer Doesn’t Carry Workers’ Compensation
I had a client come in who was injured on the job site, and their employer doesn’t carry Workers’ Compensation. Texas law allows that worker to potentially sue his employer for an unsafe work environment and other negligent actions which caused or contributed to causing that workers injuries. It’s important you meet with a lawyer to help identify those issues.
