Workplace accidents happen every day. Although many employees enjoy the benefit of workers compensation when they get hurt at work, they do not always realize that they could be entitled to further monetary damages.
If you were injured on the job, do not assume that workers comp will be your only source of payment. Texas workers compensation laws allow injured employees to sue for personal injury damages against negligent third-party defendants. If your company does not subscribe to workers compensation insurance, you can even sue your own employer.
Our Austin workers compensation lawyer provides professional and aggressive representation you can trust. With a 30-year tradition of client service in personal injury and wrongful death litigation, our law firm is thoroughly committed to helping you successfully resolve your claims.

We can advise you about the full range of your rights in all cases of serious injuries, including:
Most workers compensation plans will pay for the loss of wages you suffer while recovering from your injuries. However, we understand that these payments may not cover all your personal and family expenses. Whenever possible, we will help you recover both workers comp benefits and personal injury damages. We also represent the families of fatal accident victims through wrongful death litigation.
If your employer does not subscribe to workers comp insurance, you can collect personal injury damages from the employer upon some proof of negligence on the employer’s part. In these cases, the employer needs only to be found one percent responsible for the circumstances that caused your injuries. Personal injury litigation can result in the payment of damages for your medical expenses, lost wages, lost job benefits, emotional suffering and any lost earning potential you suffered as a result of your injuries.
