Texas Industrial Accident Lawyers
We hold equipment manufacturers accountable for injured workers
Employers are required to keep workplaces safe for workers. When they fail to meet that responsibility, workers can be seriously injured in an industrial accident. Their medical expenses add up quickly but there’s less money coming in because they can’t work. Tracey Fox King & Walters fight for the rights of injured workers.
Some workplaces are more dangerous than others. Employers must provide training and equipment, and establish procedures to help keep workers safe. When workers are injured as result of negligence, our experienced personal injury lawyers hold negligent parties accountable and fight to recover the financial compensation that injured workers deserve.
Our personal injury lawyers fight for fair financial compensation
Employees can be hurt in industrial accidents in a number of different ways. For example, they can be injured in slip and falls, or accidents involving heavy equipment or falling objects. They may need surgery, hospitalization, medication, physical therapy and multiple doctor appointments. These medical expenses can be overwhelming.
Workers’ compensation insurance can cover these expenses – but Texas does not require employers to carry it. If you were hurt in an industrial accident at a company that does not carry this insurance, you need an experienced personal injury attorney to fight for you. Our firm builds strong cases to help you get the best possible results.
Our firm handles all types of industrial accidents, including:
- Warehouse Accidents: Companies throughout the state keep their products in large warehouses. Every day, products moves from trucks onto loading docks and into the warehouse. Workers are charged with storing it, sorting it and shipping it out. Their job involves heavy lifting and the use of heavy equipment, such as pallet jacks and forklifts. Workers can be hurt in slip and fall accidents or by lifting heavy boxes. They may also suffer repetitive stress injuries or cuts from using box cutters. They can also be hurt by falling merchandise.
- Factory Accidents: Texas factories produce many different products using an assembly line process. Every shift, factory workers engage in heavy lifting, the operation of heavy equipment and machines, and repetitive motion. Negligence can cause something to go wrong, and workers may be hurt by heavy equipment or become entangled in a machine. Injuries seen among factory workers include broken bones, pulled muscles, burns and hearing or vision loss. If they work with or near hazardous chemicals, they can also suffer skin disorders or respiratory problems.
- Mining Accidents: Thousands work in the mining industry in Texas. Mining for coal, gravel, salt, limestone and sand is dangerous work. Miners work in confined spaces away from fresh air. Mining companies must take steps to keep their workplace as safe as possible. Negligence on their part can lead to tunnel collapses, flooding, equipment malfunction, explosions and exposure to poison gas. Injuries suffered by miners include broken bones, burns, respiratory problems, spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injury.
