Let Us Protect Your Rights
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA),
falls are responsible for almost 40% of fatalities in the workplace. That
is why OSHA has strict fall protection standards in place to help make
sure no employee is killed by falling from high elevations.
Unfortunately, these standards are not always followed through not properly
training workers or experiencing equipment malfunctions due to the lack
of maintenance. Whatever the cause of your fall injury may be, you are
able to make a workers’ compensation claim if the accident occurred
on the job, and your employer opted into workers’ comp.
Since Texas is one of the few states that does not make workers’
compensation mandatory for all employees, you must seek the legal representation
of a qualified lawyer to see whether you can file a workers’ comp
claim or you are eligible to sue your employer.
