In North Texas many job 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 workers compensation you are releasing the company from its liability. This means it may be difficult or impossible to file additional suit for compensation.

For this reason it is essential you retain legal representation as soon as possible. The Mesquite Job injury lawyers at the Goolsby Law Firm are experienced in handling these claims and will fight to get you the maximum compensation.

The most frequent kinds of work injuries involve commercial vehicle accidents, slips and falls, or being hit by falling objects. Other non fatal injuries can occur as a result of falls from equipment, cuts received from tools, or simply strains from lifting heavy objects.

If you’ve experienced a work injury, you may be eligible for compensations and benefits and we can help you with that. It is a must that you immediately report your work injuries to your employer. The workplace can be an extremely hazardous place. If you are injured while at the workplace, there are laws that will protect your rights.

It is essential that you see a doctor that specializes in the treatment and diagnosis of work injuries. Usually emergency rooms will simply check vital signs and release a patient with pain relief medication. They are not looking for or skilled in finding the hidden injuries which can lead to future health problems.

For example, if you were injured while using defective tools or machinery in your workplace, you can pursue the maker of this defective product as well as receiving workers’ compensation for your injuries.
