Millions of employees are injured at work each year and thousands of these accidents result in serious injuries, or even worse, death. Depending upon the circumstances of the injury, you may be entitled to financial recovery through the workers’ compensation system, a personal injury lawsuit, or both. In cases where the individual injured in the workplace passes, families of the deceased may be entitled to compensation or award for damages as well.
Texas worker’s compensation laws are complicated, and Roberts Markland LLP is well-recognized for its experience and expertise in workplace injury cases. A Houston workplace injuries lawyer at our firm has the resources and knowledge to identify and litigate for the maximum compensation you’re entitled to under the law. The most important thing to understand about worker’s compensation benefits is that Texas is the only state in the union that does not make them mandatory (except for public employers and private companies that enter into government contracts). Most large employers voluntarily provide workers compensation, but not all, furthermore why it’s necessary to have an attorney by your side at this time.
