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 can be important as you try to find your next steps.

The Bandas Law Firm delivers compassionate and experienced legal representation to injured workers in Nueces County and throughout Texas. Our Corpus Christi work injury attorneys can talk to you about your right to workers’ compensation benefits and your potential ability to file a personal injury lawsuit if a third party is responsible for your injuries. A personal injury lawsuit can open the door to additional damages that workers’ compensation does not cover, such as pain and suffering, full coverage for lost and potential earnings, and more.

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

Dangers in the Workplace

Everyone who goes to work each day faces some sort of hazard at the office. 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 worker deaths.

In 2018, the occupations that made up the largest percentage of workers’ comp claims were:

  • Freight, stock, and material movers (7.6%)
  • Drivers of big trucks (5.5%)
  • Janitors/cleaners (4.0%)
  • Nursing assistants (3.7%)
  • Maintenance and repair workers (3.3%)

Over $48 million was paid out in 2018 to injured workers to help them access treatment and pay the bills when an accident caused them to miss long periods of work.

Fault in Workers’ Compensation Cases

In most personal injury cases, your ability to recover rests on your ability to prove someone else’s negligence. In workers’ compensation cases, this is not the case. Unless your own actions were so egregiously irresponsible to be outside the scope of the insurance, it doesn’t matter who or what caused the accident. You have a right to receive workers’ compensation for any serious accident that happens while you’re on the job.

Can it be useful to assign fault in workers’ comp cases? Sometimes. If a third party’s negligence caused the accident, rather than any of your employer’s actions, you might also be able to bring a personal injury claim in court. Aside from holding the guilty party responsible for their actions, filing a lawsuit can help you receive a hefty settlement to supplement your workers’ comp payments. In court, you can recover a wider range of damages (such as missed work and pain and suffering) and make your case for why you deserve this compensation.

Work Injury Cases We Handle

Any employee in any industry may be injured while on the job, and we are here to help when that happens. Accidents, exposure to hazardous substances, repetitive motion, overexertion, and even attacks or assaults can all cause serious health concerns. Even office workers can experience carpal tunnel syndrome from typing without proper support.

Our Corpus Christi work injury lawyers can take on cases involving:

After suffering a serious injury, it can be difficult to keep up with the treatment you need, much less figure out how to file or appeal a workers’ comp claim. Our attorneys can work with you to create a smooth process that meets all your deadlines.
