In Dallas County many job and work injuries are covered by workers compensation insurance. Unfortunately sometimes the payments offered are insufficient, or in some cases benefits are refused entirely. You should be aware if you accept a workers compensation you are releasing the company from its liability. This means it may be difficult or impossible to file additional suit for compensation.

This is the reason why, when you are affected by a job or work injury, before you accept any form of payment you should contact the Dallas County Job / work injury lawyers at The Goolsby Law Firm. You need someone on your side who understands how to fully investigate your accident, present your claim, and get you the maximum compensation to help you to recover.

Before you accept workers’ compensation benefits, you should be aware that by doing so you are releasing the company of liability.
