Our advocates fight for employee rights when injured on the job

You go to work every day assuming your employer has done everything possible to make your workplace safe —including purchasing workers’ compensation insurance to cover you if you are hurt.

​If you work in construction, any manual occupation using your hands, or perform in a busy office, you know how easily accidents can happen. When they do and something goes wrong, you may be left injured and unable to do your job. After a serious or catastrophic workplace injury, you pay a big enough price with the pain and suffering that follows.

You should not also have to pay financially.

Compensation Benefits & Work Injury Claims

There are protections in place for employees that are injured on the job, but is it enough?

Workers’ Compensation benefits exist to provide coverage for medical bills and other expenses. However, there is usually a considerable difference on what is awarded in a workers’ comp claim versus a personal injury claim. Traditional workers’ compensation applications do not typically factor in negligence of an employer or safety violations. There could be additional settlements available that result from negligence.

WORK SITE ACCIDENTS

If you’ve been injured at work, Galindo Law is the firm to call

Job-related injuries and hazards pose threats to workers every day. Injuries can be caused for a variety of reasons, including unsafe work conditions, inadequate safety and training, faulty or defective equipment, negligence of co-workers, and toxic exposure.

​Not all employers carry workers compensation coverage. In these situations, the employer can be directly responsible for your damages.

​In some cases, injuries or exposures are caused by third parties.

Workplace injuries can result from a wide range of risk factors including:

  • Trips, Slips and Falls

  • Cuts, Burns or Lacerations

  • Blunt Force Trauma

  • Crush Injuries

  • Vehicle Collisions or Forklift Incidents

  • Electrical Shock or Electrocution

  • Chemical Leaks, Explosions or Toxic Exposure

  • Dangerous or Heavy Machinery

  • Faulty or Defective Equipment

  • Falling or Collapsing Objects

  • Lifting

  • Repetitive Strain and Stress

  • Co-Worker Negligence

  • Improper Training

  • Safety Violations

  • Workplace Violence

  • And So Many More
