Workplace Accident Law Firm Advocates for Those Injured on the Job
As a general rule, San Antonio employers have a duty under Texas law to keep the workplace safe and free from the threat of injury. This duty includes an obligation to provide the proper equipment to get the job done safely. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) also imposes standards upon employers that require them to provide a safe work environment.
Some common types of workplace injuries in San Antonio include:
- Falls at construction sites, buildings, lifts, and other heights
- Industrial accidents
- Slip and fall incidents
- Accidents resulting from an employer’s failure to conduct safety inspections
- Accidents caused by negligent hiring, negligent retention of employees, or failure to properly train employees
Injuries sustained on the job can negatively impact an employee’s life in a variety of ways, including:
- Physical pain
- Emotional distress
- Loss of earnings or future earning capacity
- Medical bills
- Permanent injury
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of enjoyment of life
In Texas, if an employer doesn’t carry workers compensation insurance and one of their employees suffers a work-related injury, the injured person may have a right to file a personal injury claim against their employer, even if they agree to pay for the employee’s medical care or part of their lost wages.
