If you have been injured in the course of doing your job, you likely have a claim for workers’ compensation benefits. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your accident, you may also have grounds to seek additional damages. The process for securing fair compensation in these cases can be extremely difficult. The assistance of a reliable Houston workplace accident attorney can help to ensure that your interests are protected.
At the Law Offices of Ben Dominguez, we provide comprehensive legal services to people who have suffered serious injuries on the job. Whether your claim for benefits has been denied, your employer doesn’t carry workers’ compensation insurance or you need to pursue a claim against another party beyond your employer, our Houston law firm is prepared to help you.
On-The-Job Injuries and Third-Party Claims
There can be a number of cases where a workplace injury victim may be entitled to seek compensation from someone other than his or her employer. For example, you can seek additional compensation if you are working on-site at a client’s office and you are injured. Similarly, if an outside contractor is doing a job at your workplace and you are injured due to the contractor’s negligence, you may have grounds for an additional claim.
We have also handled cases where a person who was driving as part of his or her job responsibilities was the victim of an accident, as well as claims where the premises owner created a dangerous condition that contributed to an accident. We conduct a thorough review of your case and develop a customized plan to secure the maximum level of compensation available for your claim.
Denied Workers’ Compensation Claims
If your claim for benefits has been denied, do not feel like you have no other options. Employers’ insurance companies routinely deny claims in hopes that the victim will simply walk away. You have the right to challenge the denial. We provide representation at every stage of these proceedings with the singular focus on securing the benefits you deserve.
