Dallas Workplace Injury Attorneys

Serious injuries and deaths caused as a result of inadequate safety measures in and around the workplace happen unfortunately all to often because employers are irresponsibly sacrificing safety for profits.

Non-Subscriber Employers

In Texas, many employers are choosing to not provide Workers Compensation insurance to their employees. These employers are known as Non-Subscribers. If a worker is injured in the workplace of an employer who is a Non-Subscriber, then that employer can be sued for failing to provide a safe place to work. If an employee is injured by the negligence of a co-employee, the injured employee can sue the employer for failing to provide a safe workplace.

Third Party Cases

Even if the employer has Workers Compensation insurance, an injured employee can bring a claim against a third party that may have caused the incident. For example, an employee who is injured on the job due to a defective product or the actions of a third party not employed by the employee’s employer can bring a lawsuit against that product manufacturer or the at-fault third party.
