Each year, more than 4,500 people are killed and more than 3 million are injured while on the job in the United States, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Workplace injuries can occur in virtually any environment, from construction sites to hospitals to office buildings.
In Texas, employers that subscribe to the state’s workers’ compensation system generally are immune from workplace-injury lawsuits because their employees are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. But businesses that do not participate in the program can be held liable for unsafe working conditions. And sometimes a third party — such as an outside contractor or the manufacturer of a piece of dangerous machinery — may be responsible for the death or injury of a worker.
In those instances, the lawyers at The Law Offices of Frank L. Branson can help victims or their families obtain the compensation they deserve. Our team of investigators and attorneys can find out who is responsible for the accident. In more complicated cases, we often apply our multimedia expertise to create vivid audio-visual evidence that will clearly demonstrate — to a jury or to our opponents — who should be held accountable.
