Houston, Texas (TX) Workers’ Compensation
Some jobs are more obviously dangerous than others, but anyone can be victim to an accident in the workplace. An injury may force you to miss work and lose wages, which puts undeserved stress on your family.
If you are hurt while performing job-related duties, workers’ compensation is designed to help you get through the injury and recover the damages. Insurance companies may deny your workers’ compensation claim or try to pay you less than you are owed, but a Houston workers’ compensation lawyer can help you fight back.
Morgan & Morgan has been protecting families since 1988. We know your loved ones rely on you, and we’ll fight to get you the compensation you need. Fill out a free case evaluation to get started.
What Is Workers’ Compensation Insurance?
An injury can affect your ability to work, and in some cases, it can lead to career loss. Workers’ compensation insurance is designed to provide financial relief for employees who are hurt on the job. For those who depend on a regular paycheck to survive, being denied this compensation can have serious consequences.
Here are some examples of common workplace injuries:
- Slip and fall
- Repetitive motion injuries
- Hazardous materials
- Struck-by-object incidents
If you’ve been injured at work, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation; Morgan & Morgan can fight to get you paid in full.
Do I Need a Lawyer?
A denied claim can leave you feeling frustrated and defeated; however, you might have to file multiple claims before you even get a reasonable offer. This situation looks different when you have a workers’ compensation lawyer on your side. Although the insurance company may try to devalue your claims, your attorney will build the strongest case possible to get you full and fair compensation.
Everyone can afford Morgan & Morgan. We work on contingency, meaning we don’t get paid if we don’t win. When we’ve successfully resolved your case, we take our fee out of the winnings instead of your pocket: that means you can enjoy expert representation without any financial risk.
What Damages Can I Recover?
It’s difficult to receive full compensation when you’re not aware of the damages you can claim. Our lawyers will fight to recover damages such as:
- Medical expenses (hospital stays, prescription medications, and ongoing treatments)
- Lost wages (missing time at work, losing your job, or losing your earning capacity)
- Pain and suffering (including emotional and mental health damages)
- Wrongful death
