Work Injury Attorney
Every year, thousands of workers are seriously injured on the job. Workplace injuries can leave you temporarily or permanently disabled and unable to support your family. Accidents in the workplace are unfortunately far too common, ranging from simple slip and falls to major plant explosions.
As a general rule, your employer has a duty under Texas law to maintain a safe workplace. In addition to state regulations, Federal organizations including Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) impose their own standards upon employers to provide a safe workplace for employees. Only an experienced Texas work injury attorney will know how state and federal laws work, and use that knowledge to get you the maximum compensation for your damages.
If your on-the-job injury prevents you from returning to work, Liggett Law Group can help answer your questions and explain your legal situation. Our trial lawyers represent injured workers and the families of victims of wrongful death in the workplace. We have experience handling many workplace injury cases, in our local area of Lubbock, across the state of Texas, and around the United States, including those dealing with Texas workers’ compensation nonsubscribers.
