Austin Workplace Injury Attorneys

Dedicated Workplace Injury Attorneys Representing Employees Injured in Texas

Our experienced Glen Larson Law workplace injury lawyers in Austin are dedicated to developing unique legal strategies for our fellow Texans who have been hurt at work by taking an aggressive approach to producing solution-driven results.

We understand that our Texas economy is supported by inherently dangerous industries, including oil rig and refinery work, construction and labor, production and transportation, and heavy equipment and manufacturing jobs that can lead to severe injury or death during any employee’s workday.

Unfortunately, because of the dangerous nature of Texas employment, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported 608 occupational fatalities throughout the state last year alone, which was the highest in the nation.

The Texas Department of Insurance listed nearly 178,000 non-fatal workplace injuries and illnesses reported by private employers over the same period, which left 30% of those hurt out of work for nine days or more.

If you or your loved one has suffered a severe work injury or has tragically lost their life while on the job, our workplace injury lawyers, wrongful death attorneys, and accomplished support staff provide trusted legal representation for our fellow Texans, no matter where they live or work in the Lone Star State.

Call our bilingual staff, who is available seven days a week, 24 hours each day, and we will come to you in your time of need to understand the true impact your injuries or the loss of your loved one has had on your physical, emotional, and financial well-being to explore your legal options for compensation and justice.

Call (512) 883-0277 now to learn more about our commitment to providing expert legal protection for injured Texas employees.

There is never a charge to talk to an attorney. We stand ready.

What are the Most Common Causes of Workplace Injuries in Texas?

Are All Texas Employers Required to Provide Workers’ Compensation Benefits?

Employers are not required to carry workers’ compensation coverage in Texas, unless the company is a public employer.

Whether employers carry workers’ compensation or not, they are bound by our Texas Workers’ Compensation Laws that require them to notify all new hires of their coverage/non-coverage, and must post the same notice in plain view for all employees to see.

Employees have the right to waive their workers’ compensation benefits within five days of their start date, which will make them exempt from gaining their employer’s medical or income benefits but will allow them to retain their right to sue the employer, should a work-related injury occur.

What Type of Financial Recovery Can I Pursue for My Texas Workplace Injury Claim?

Each workplace injury claim is unique and requires an experienced team of attorneys to evaluate its true value.

Based on how the injuries have affected your life, the damages we pursue on your behalf may differ, but could include:

  • Past medical expenses
  • Future medical expenses
  • Loss of past wages
  • Loss of future wages
  • Loss of wage-earning capacity
  • Reduced future earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering in the past
  • Pain and suffering in the future
  • Mental anguish in the past

Frequently Asked Questions for Our Workplace Injury Attorneys in Austin, Texas

Do I Need an Attorney if My Injuries are Covered by Texas Workers’ Compensation Benefits?

The short answer is, probably. Unfortunately, workers’ compensation insurance coverage works the same way as all insurance coverage, meaning the insurance company is going to do everything they can to delay, undervalue, or deny your claim.

The red tape that comes along with filing a successful workers’ compensation claim is designed to slow injured workers down from accessing the benefits they are entitled to after suffering a work injury. And when the paperwork is incomplete or incorrect, the insurance company will waste little time denying the claim outright.

If you have been hurt at work, and would like to file a workers’ compensation claim, call our skilled workplace injury lawyers in Austin at Glen Larson Law today to ensure your rights are protected throughout the process.

Can My Texas Employer Fire Me For Filing a Workers’ Compensation or Personal Injury Claim?

No. Firing an employee for seeking compensation for his or her workplace injuries is considered retaliation and is prohibited by law. If you have been fired for filing a claim, call our skilled Austin workplace injury attorneys today to learn more about how we will partner with an employment law specialist to file a secondary claim against your employer for unlawful termination.

What if Someone Other Than My Employer is Liable for My Injuries?

Depending on the industry in which you are employed, there may be parties other than your employer that are responsible for your workplace injuries. That may include, a customer, vendor, subcontractor, manufacturer, or another third party that participates in the project.

Third-party lawsuits require detailed legal experience to ensure the best outcome, and our experienced workplace injury attorneys in Austin provide the firepower our clients need to pursue tangible results from all applicable sources.
