Workers’ Compensation And Third-Party Lawsuits For Explosion And Fire Injuries
Most workers in the oil and gas industry in Texas are covered under their employer’s workers’ compensation insurance plan in the event of a job-related injury. By accepting workers’ comp benefits for medical care and wage loss while out of work, you will forfeit your right to sue your employer for additional financial damages. Unfortunately, workers’ compensation will only pay two-thirds of your average weekly wages, and will not compensate you and your family for intangibles such as pain and suffering.
For third-party lawsuits, the firm does not charge attorneys’ fees if you do not recover money damages in a settlement or jury verdict, if your case goes to trial.
Greg can help you get the workers’ compensation benefits you are entitled to, while also determining whether you have a valid case for filing a lawsuit against a third party. Third-party lawsuits may be filed against a product manufacturer, a property owner or another subcontractor held liable for causing the accident or contributing to the extent of injuries or wrongful death.
