No matter where you work, if you suffer an accident that wasn’t your fault, then you could have grounds for compensation with the help of a personal injury lawyer. 

Personal injuries at work: your options

Dealing with the aftermath of an accident can be a stressful and uncertain time. By exploring your options for compensation, you can make sure you get the help you need following your workplace injury. 

If you’ve been injured at work, you may wish to pursue one of the following options:

Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ compensation is a type of benefit paid out by your employer in the event of a workplace injury. If you receive workers’ compensation, you will not be able to recover further compensation from your employer. Although we do not cover workers’ compensation claims, we can examine your injury details for potential legal compensation.

File a lawsuit

A personal injury lawsuit is a way to help you claim compensation for your injuries and their associated financial cost. You may be able to claim for medical expenses, loss of earnings, future losses and other reasonable expenses as the result of your injuries. An experienced personal injury lawyer will be able to take you through the process to ensure you get fair compensation for your accident.

Compensation against a third party

If there was a third party involved in your accident, such as a service provider or supplier, you may be able to seek compensation via a lawsuit. You can claim compensation against a third party even if you received a Workers’ Compensation benefit from your employer.

At Heard Merman, you can discuss your options with one of our work injury lawyers to work out the best approach for your circumstances. Contact us today or call us toll-free at 713-665-1100.

Is a workers’ compensation claim right for you?

Many employers have a Workers’ Compensation benefit in place that is paid out to employees who are involved in an accident at work. In Texas, a workers’ compensation claim will typically involve a medical examination from a company-appointed doctor to assess your injuries and prognosis. Doing this means your employer could actively seek to reduce any benefits you are due, something that could have a significant impact on your recovery and future.

Why a personal injury claim is different

Making a personal injury claim is a different type of claim from that of a workers’ compensation claim. Using experienced work injury lawyers in Houston, Texas, you can pursue legal action to claim for your injuries and all of your associated expenses. You’ll get to choose your doctor and get a fair assessment of your injuries so that you can make a full claim for damages. 

With a personal injury lawyer working for you, you can recover the costs of your injuries, pain and suffering and the mental impact of your accident. There is also your loss of earnings and future economic damages that could arise as a result of your accident. 

To help you get the full compensation you deserve, pursuing a personal injury lawsuit is the best course of action, putting you in control for the best outcome for you and your family.
