On the Job Injuries

San Antonio On-the-Job Injury Attorney

It has been said that more accidents occur in the home than anywhere else. If that holds true, then perhaps the second most common location for potential accidents is on the job.

Every year work injuries, such as machine accidents, maim or kill thousands of workers in the United States. In most instances, those workers are prohibited from filing lawsuits against their employers. Instead, they must recover for their injuries through the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act.

However, a third party may be sued for failing to provide or ensure the operation of sufficient safety measures. Parties that may be sued include:

  • Property Owners
  • Architects
  • Contractors
  • Manufacturers of Construction Equipment

If you have suffered an injury on the job, contact The Law Office of Thomas C. Hall, P.C., for a free initial consultation. Telephones are answered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
