Experienced Third Party Work Injury Claims Lawyers
Helping You Get Full and Fair Compensation for Injuries Suffered on the Job
If you have been injured on the job in Texas, you may have a claim for benefits under the Texas Workers’ Compensation laws. If your injury was caused by someone other than your employer or a co-employee, you may also have a right to seek damages in a personal injury claim in court. To fully understand all your rights, you want to talk with an experienced Texas workers’ compensation and workplace injury attorney about third party claims.

We place a premium on personal service and attention, taking the time to learn the facts and circumstances of your case, as well as what you want to achieve, so that we can tailor our approach to get the results you need. We will carefully explain the law and the process, as well as your options and chances of success, so that you always know where you stand, and can make good decisions that protect your rights. We encourage open communication on all matters, keeping you updated on all developments in your case, so that you know what to expect.
Texas Third Party Injury Claims
Most workplace injuries are covered under the Texas workers’ compensation laws. However, when you suffer injury in the course of your employment as a result of the acts of parties other than your employer or a co-worker, you may have a right to seek damages separate and apart from your workers’ comp claim. For example, you may be injured by the careless or negligent acts of another driver while traveling on behalf of your employer. You may sustain an injury because of the negligent design, manufacture or distribution of a dangerous or defective tool or piece of machinery/equipment. In these instances, you may have a right to seek compensation in a personal injury action in court, in addition to your workers’ compensation claim.
When you hire us after a workplace injury, we will fully investigate the details of your accident to verify whether you were hurt during the course of employment. We will also look at whether you can simultaneously seek damages from a third party in a court of law.
We Work On A Contingency Fee Basis
Personal injury lawsuits are complicated and expensive to mount and that is why we take all cases on contingency, meaning there is never a fee until we recover a settlement in your favor.
