Austin Workplace Injury Attorneys
Representing Injured Workers in Texas and Across the U.S.
Texas is home to numerous industries that put workers in serious, even grave danger. The oil industry. Commercial trucking and shipping. Construction. Agriculture. The list goes on. Each of these industries is subject to local and federal regulations to protect the safety of our workforce. Most of the time, these laws work, and trained workers can comfortably perform their duties without fear of an accident. However, despite these laws—and for a variety of reasons—accidents and injuries do happen.
If you or a loved one have sustained a serious injury in the workplace, you likely have some avenue available to you to seek compensation.
These are examples of common workplace injuries:
- Bone fractures
- Back injuries
- Head injuries
- Crushing injuries
- Repetitive motion injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
At Glen Larson Law, our experienced Austin personal injury lawyers are well-versed in these matters and how to launch a thorough and compelling effort that clearly communicates our clients' right to financial relief.

Workers' Compensation & Injury Claims
It is not required for employers to obtain workers' compensation insurance. However, if your employer does take part in this program—and you are injured—filing a workers' comp claim is the most reliable way to secure benefits to cover medical bills and lost wages.
Workers' compensation claims are notoriously difficult to navigate and many insurers will use nearly any excuse to deny a worker the benefits they deserve. That is why it is advised that injured workers and their families hire a proven Austin injury attorney to help them develop and submit their claim.
If your employer does not carry workers' comp insurance, then it may still be possible to seek compensation from the employer if there was liability. That means that if the employer somehow contributed to the accident, they can be held accountable.
Workplace injury claims often involve:
- Unsafe conditions
- Improper training or hiring practice
- Inadequate supervision
- Lack of functional safety equipment
- Lack of appropriate warning signage
