Work Injury Lawyers
Workers’ compensation provides benefits for anyone injured because of their own negligence or that of their employer. When employers don’t carry workers’ compensation insurance, victims of an industrial or construction injury can sue an employer for negligence. If your employer or coworker was negligent and caused you harm, or if your workplace failed to follow OSHA safety regulations on such topics as asbestos, contact Frenkel & Frenkel for assistance.
In certain limited situations, employees can sue their employers even if the employer provided Workers’ compensation. This occurs when an employee dies while on the job because of the employer’s gross negligence.
If a third party was involved — another work crew on the job site, the manufacturer of a defective product or the other driver in a car, truck or commercial vehicle accident — you have the right to seek compensation.
We represent injured Texas workers in any industry — oil wells, offshore oil rigs, chemical plants, home and building construction, manufacturing plants, maintenance crews and road crews. Whether burned, electrocuted, crushed by a crane or sickened because of harmful exposure to chemical spills, toxic gas emissions or radiation leaks, industrial accidents can result in serious injury. Falls on construction sites can cause serious head or spinal cord injuries, resulting in paralysis and even death. Being struck and run over by forklift or caught in the collapse of an excavation can cause the loss of a limb.
At Frenkel & Frenkel, we work with a wide variety of medical experts, skilled life care planners, and economists in order to understand your immediate medical conditions and predict your future financial, medical and accommodation needs. Each of these professionals can help us build your case. Some catastrophic injuries that should be prosecuted for compensation include:
- Traumatic Brain Injury – Occurs when a person suffers a strong blow to the head. It can cause the temporary dysfunction of brain cells and in more severe cases, bruising, bleeding, torn tissues, or other damage that can lead to long-term complications or even death.
- Spinal Cord Injury – An injury to the spinal cord may lead to severe pain, a loss of feeling, respiratory problems, and even the loss of motor function. Severe spinal cord injuries can consist of cervical spinal injuries, thoracic spinal injuries, and lumbar spinal injuries.
- Paralysis – Severe spinal cord injuries may sometimes even lead to paralysis. This can include paraplegia, quadriplegia, or more simply, a loss of sensory or motor function.
- Loss of Limbs or Amputations – Often due to negligence, some workplace accidents can result in the loss of limbs.
- Severe Burns – These are more serious injury types due to both the cost, pain and potential damage and can include fire, scalding, chemicals, and electrical burns.
