Dallas Workplace Injury Attorney

workplace accidents at west end dallas

Workplace injury attorney, Michael Sawicki, has been representing victims of workplace injuries and their loved ones for several years. Since worker's compensation is optional to private employers in Texas, it's imperative that you hire an attorney who is knowledgeable in this specific area of Texas law to ensure that you get the compensation that you deserve. 

Injuries suffered in the workplace in Texas are incredibly high. In fact, the Beaureu of Labor Statistics declared that Texas has a 2.6% incident rate across all injuries in 2015. Our history includes a wide variety of workplace injuries, from oil field explosions and construction site collapse to high transmission tower falls and helicopter crashes.

When you are injured on the job and in the recovery process, you might have to miss work for multiple days or take on light or restricted responsibilities. Sometimes this can result in loss wages or a decrease in pay. Sometimes if the injury is severe enough or in the event of wrongful death, it can lead to being out of work permanently. 

Workplace Injuries In Dallas - What Are Your Rights? 

Since Texas doesn't require worker's compensation insurance, some companies chose a different form of insurance. In this case, your employer is referred to as a "nonsubscriber." If your employer has some form of worker's compensation insurance, you are not able to sue your employer for personal injury. And while worker's compensation might be able to recover a percentage of lost wages, it doesn't help you get compensation for your medical bills or rehabilitation services to recover from your injury. 

This is why our Dallas workplace injury lawyers will look to file what is called a "Third Party Lawsuit" on your behalf. 

A third party lawsuit is brought up against anyone other than your employer who might be held liable for your injuries sustained at work including: 

  • property owners
  • architects
  • transportation drivers
  • general constructors and subcontractors

If your injury was due to their negligence then they are liable especially if your injury was due to unsafe work conditions, lack of safety equipment, lack of proper training, or faulty equipment. In some instances, if you are injured due to faulty equipment you can bring a suit against the manufacturer for product liability

Representing workers injured or killed on the job requires an understanding of the duties employers have to provide safe work environments and the state and federal rules that apply to the industries involved. Our firm utilizes a network of highly-trained experts in workplace safety to identify the issues involved in each case and prove them before a jury.
