Workers' Comp Lawyer in Houston, TX
Defending the Rights of Injured Employees
Under Texas law, if an employee has suffered injury in a workplace accident or has suffered illness from a situation related to their work on the job, they are owed benefits under workers' comp. These benefits are there to protect the
rights of injured workers and are there regardless of the cause of the injury or illness as workers' compensation is considered to be a no-fault type of coverage. Despite this, however, many injured employees find themselves not filing when they are owed benefits.
For many, it is the fear of employer retaliation that keeps them from filing for workers' compensation. For others it is the fright that they simply do not understand the process and are afraid that their claim will be denied. Some are worried that they will have to deal with
workers' comp fraud. This, however, should not be enough to keep you from filing. Dealing with a work-related injury or accident is a serious situation and can have a direct impact on your life. If you are currently suffering from something of this nature, you simply cannot afford to procrastinate or waste time. You deserve to seek legal counsel from an experienced
Houston workers' compensation attorney that you can trust to provide you with the guidance that you deserve.

It offers coverage for work-related injuries on a no-fault basis, meaning injured workers do not need to prove that someone else was to blame in order to seek benefits.
