Harris County Workplace Accident Attorney for Workers' Compensation and Non-Subscriber Work Injuries

A serious injury that occurs in the workplace can affect a person and their family in multiple ways. In addition to receiving costly medical treatment, a person may be unable to work while they are recovering, or they may experience permanent disabilities that will affect their ability to earn an income and provide for their family. Fortunately, injured workers have multiple options for receiving compensation to address these issues. By working with an experienced attorney, a person may be able to file a workers' compensation claim and receive medical and disability benefits, or they may take legal action against a negligent employer or other parties who were responsible for their injuries.

At the Law Office of Shane R. Kadlec, we provide dedicated representation for people who have suffered injuries in workplace accidents or who have experienced health conditions related to the work they have performed. With over 25 years of legal experience, Attorney Kadlec has the knowledge and skill to help injured workers and their families take the correct steps to receive the compensation they need and deserve.

Compensation for Work-Related Injuries

In many cases, employees who have suffered injuries while working can receive workers' compensation benefits. These benefits are available regardless of who was at fault for an injury, and they will fully cover the costs of medical treatment for a work-related injury. They may also provide compensation for a portion of the income lost while a person is unable to return to full-time work while recovering, and they may also address any permanent disabilities that will affect a person's ability to earn an income in the future.

When an employer has workers' compensation insurance, employees will be able to receive benefits for injuries caused by workplace accidents, as well as health conditions caused by their work-related activities, such as repetitive stress injuries or occupational illnesses due to toxic chemical exposure. However, employers in Texas are not required to have workers' compensation insurance. In cases involving non-subscriber work injuries, employees may be able to pursue compensation for injuries that occurred because of an employer's negligence. Workers may also be able to pursue third-party work injury claims against another person or company that was responsible for their injuries.

We provide legal representation in multiple types of cases involving workplace accidents and injuries, including:

  • Construction accidents - Construction workers may be injured by falls, electrocution, being struck by falling objects, or being caught in between moving pieces of equipment.
  • Industrial workplace accidents - Workers at chemical plants or factories may experience burn injuries or smoke inhalation due to fires or explosions, or they may be exposed to toxic chemicals or other hazardous substances.
  • Longshoreman and harbor injuries - Maritime workers will need to understand their rights in cases involving injuries that occur when working on or near ships, docks, and harbors.
  • Oil rig accidents - Workers on offshore oil drilling platforms may be injured by gas leaks, explosions, chemical burns, falling objects, or defective equipment, and maritime laws will apply in these cases.
  • Oilfield and refinery accidents - Oil and gas workers face a number of risks due to the use of heavy, complex equipment and machinery, and accidents and injuries may occur because of improperly maintained equipment, lack of training, or failure to comply with safety regulations.
