Let’s face it. A job can be dangerous and risky. We see it all the time in construction, the oil field, railroad, maritime and offshore, manufacturing, and out on the ranch or in agriculture. Of course, this list is not exhaustive and many jobs can be just as dangerous. Injuries just happen.
What is important to remember is what happens after an injury is crucial. Sometimes your injury may only be covered by a worker’s compensation plan. Sometimes they are not. This area of the law can be tricky and complex.
You should work with an attorney to make sure you are navigating this complex field correctly. Call 512-870-7099 and we can talk about how to deal with workplace injuries and what to do next.
