What You Need to Know in Case of a Work Injury

Work Injury CasesIf you’ve suffered a work injury, it is critically important that you hire a Frisco attorney as soon as you possibly can. The reason is that you will probably not be able to receive the compensation you need through the Texas Workers Comp program, especially if you have been seriously hurt. At The Durham Law Firm, we want you to be as well informed as possible so that you can chart the best course of action.

A Quick Overview of Workers Comp

The Texas Workers’ Compensation Law acts as a framework for providing financial relief to people who have suffered a work injury. Actually, “relief” is a bit of a stretch; in the vast majority of instances, the person who has been hurt will not be able to obtain fair compensation for expenses such as lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering, and many more incurred as the result of a workplace accident. As a result, it is vital that you hire a lawyer who has a track record of success in these types of cases who can work on your behalf.

How an Attorney Can Help

Because workers’ comp in Texas is so inadequate, you may need to file a third party claim in order to have a chance of obtaining the compensation you are looking for. Many plaintiffs in work injury cases don’t know that the existence of a third party, such as the manufacturer of a piece of faulty equipment, could be the key to achieving a positive result. That third party could be held liable for your injury and forced to pay.
