Common Workplace Accidents and Injuries in Texas
You could be at risk of a serious injury or illness with any job in Texas. However, some industries are more dangerous than others – meaning they report more serious worker injuries and deaths per year. Statistically, construction is the deadliest industry in the U.S., accounting for about 20 percent of all worker deaths each year (source: the Occupational Safety and Health Administration). Other dangerous jobs in Texas include the oil and gas industry, farming, and transportation.
Common types of occupational accidents include:
- Struck-by falling or flying object
- Caught in or between objects or equipment
- Forklift accidents
- Crane accidents
- Heavy machinery accidents
- Tractor accidents
- Pipeline explosion
- Oil rig accidents
The injuries sustained by workers who get involved in these accidents can be catastrophic, meaning they will affect the worker for life. They include broken bones, head and brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, soft-tissue injuries, burn injuries, and serious illnesses. After any work accident and injury diagnosis in Bryan or College Station, consult with an attorney about how to seek fair financial compensation.
Workers’ Compensation Claim vs. Personal Injury Lawsuit in Texas
Unlike other states, Texas does not require any employer to obtain workers’ compensation insurance coverage. After an accident at work, you will need to ask your employer if you are covered by workers’ comp. If so, you can file this type of claim to receive no-fault benefits. A workers’ comp settlement, however, is often less in value than what a worker can receive through a personal injury lawsuit filed against a negligent person or a party.
A personal injury lawsuit might be an option for you if someone else’s negligence caused your occupational injury or illness. Negligence is the failure to use proper care, such as an employer failing to equip you with the correct safety gear based on the risks inherent to your job. If negligence contributed to your work injury in Texas, you could be eligible for greater financial compensation with a lawsuit than what is offered through workers’ comp. Discuss all of your legal options with an attorney before accepting an insurance settlement.
