Work Injuries

Corpus Christi Work Injury Attorneys

You Need Competent Counsel after a Workplace Accident

A work injury can leave you facing an uncertain future. You may require extensive (and expensive) medical care that makes you unable to work. In some cases, the injury may be so bad you cannot return to the same job at all. Recovering fair benefits and compensation is an important step to getting your life back after an workplace accident.

Why You Need a Work Injury Lawyer

Work injury claims in Texas are not always straightforward. Unlike other states, Texas does not require private businesses to have workers' comp insurance, which means injured workers may need to file a personal injury lawsuit against their employer in order to receive the compensation they deserve.

When you come to Bandas Law Firm, you will receive compassionate and experienced legal representation for your work injury claim in Nueces County and throughout Texas. Our team of work injury attorneys in Corpus Christi are here to guide you to the best possible outcome for your unique case.

Contact our team at (361) 238-2789 today to find out how we can help after a serious workplace accident or injury.

Work Injury Cases We Handle

Everyone who goes to work each day faces some sort of hazard on-the-job. However, we are not all at equal risk. Employees who work with big machinery, caustic chemicals, and heavy items are more likely to suffer a workplace injury. Another dangerous occupation: any job that involves driving. Car accidents are typically the largest cause of fatal work injuries.

Bandas Law Firm has helped workers in all types of fields get back on their feet after a workplace injury, whether it was caused by an accident, toxic exposure, repetitive stress, overexertion, and even an attack or assault.

We handle the following types of cases, and more:

Filing for Workers’ Compensation After an Accident

The first thing you want to do is inform your employer. As part of the Texas workers’ compensation procedure, you must report the injury to the employer within the first 30 days after the accident occurred, or after the injury was discovered. If you don’t report it, you won’t be entitled to workers’ compensation later.

After reporting your workplace injury, you must apply for a claim. You do this by filling out the Employee’s Claim for Compensation for a Work-Related Injury or Occupation Disease, also called DWC Form-041. After completing it, you have to send it to the Texas Department of Insurance Division of Workers’ Compensation, TDI-DWC. If you don’t send this claim within a year after the date of the injury, you will lose your right to workers’ compensation.

What Workers' Comp Benefits Can I Receive?

If the workers’ compensation claim is approved, you will be entitled to compensation for all your injury-related medical bills. You may also receive a portion of your wages for as long as the injury prevents you from working. This amount is based on your past wages as well as if you are unable to work again.

A family member who lost a loved one in a workplace accident may also apply for burial and death benefits. Burial benefits can compensate the family for funeral and burial costs, while death benefits can replace the loss of income from a spouse or parent.

Does Fault Matter in Work Injury Cases?

If your employer has workers' compensation insurance, it doesn't matter who was at fault for your injury; workers' comp covers any on-the-job injury, except in very rare cases where an employee's own actions were so egregiously irresponsible to be outside the scope of the insurance.

However, if your employer doesn't have workers' comp insurance and you want to file a personal injury claim, it may be necessary to prove that they were at fault for your injury. The same is true for third-party claims, where a defective product or negligent property owner contributed to your injury.
