A personal injury can have devastating consequences. It can hurt a person physically, emotionally, and financially. An injury in the workplace adds additional stress, such as filing a workers’ compensation claim. Texas sees an average of about 500 fatal occupational injuries per year. A wrongful death in the workplace can tear a family apart, but a skilled attorney can help pick up the pieces. Every workplace personal injury is serious and deserves the quality attention of an experienced Houston workplace injury lawyer. Gordon, Elias & Seely, LLP, are here for injured workers in Texas.
Texas has a booming economy, with several major industries leading the nation’s economic comeback. Workers flock to Texas for opportunities in the construction, oil and gas, farming, and steel industries. Unfortunately, the same industries that are Texas’ mainstays happen to be the most dangerous in the world for workers. Construction is the deadliest industry, with more than five million worker injuries on construction sites per year. Construction workers have to operate heavy machinery, work from great heights, and handle hazardous materials.
In our 60 years of combined experience in personal injury law, Gordon, Elias & Seely, LLP, have represented hundreds of workplace injury cases in Houston, the Gulf Coast area, and beyond. We’ve helped clients recover for construction site and other workplace injuries, identifying who is liable and pursuing compensation through the Texas civil courts. Here are a few types of workplace injuries we can skillfully represent:
Your injuries may be catastrophic, leading to amputations, paralysis, or other permanent disability. Even “minor” injuries like a fractured bone can lead to weeks or months out of work. Regardless of what type of injury you sustained in the workplace, call 800.773.6770 to speak with our team. Workers’ compensation may cover the costs of your workplace injuries, but in cases of negligence, this may not be the best route for you.
