Loading docks, warehouses, freight terminals and other industrial transfer hubs can be the scene of serious accidents and injuries. The workers at these sites perform jobs that are essential to the fabric of our society, and when they suffer injuries on the job, they deserve to receive adequate compensation for their medical expenses and lost wages.
Since 1978, our local Austin workers comp lawyers have provided professional and aggressive legal counsel to the people of Central Texas. Our familiarity with both personal injury cases and the Texas workers comp system means that we know how to help you get the compensation you deserve.
We Represent Injured Texas Workers
Our Austin workers compensation lawyer advises and represents clients who have suffered injuries ranging from soft tissue damage to disabling brain injuries. Our law firm knows how to establish liability and prove damages in situations involving:
- Forklift or pallet jack accidents
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Injuries caused by slip and falls
- Injuries caused by falling overhead objects
- Injuries caused by wet or hazardous parking areas
Do not assume that workers compensation is your only remedy for industrial accidents in warehouses or loading docks. If your company does not subscribe to workers comp, it can be held liable in a negligence lawsuit for higher damages. There may also be another defendant to pursue, such as a supplier or transfer company whose driver or employee was negligent at your work site.
If your employer is covered by workers compensation insurance, you can collect benefits on a claim while we evaluate and pursue your claims for personal injury damages against any third parties that may be responsible.
We explore every possible source of compensation for you, including recovering money under workers compensation, an injured employee benefit plan or through litigation on a negligence claim. In some cases, we will pursue your rights under more than one system. Our experience with industrial accidents helps you collect benefits and damages from as many sources as possible, not just the most obvious ones.
