Our Houston work injury attorneys have over 100 years of combined experience representing workers injured due to falls in work areas, industrial equipment failures, plant explosions, and other tragedies arising in or around the workplace.

All workers face some degree of risk while on the job, but workers on industrial and construction sites are at a considerable risk every single workday. Even though there are many state and federal regulations designed to protect them, many employees are seriously injured or killed in workplace accidents in the United States each year.

Many jobs in construction involve potentially dangerous duties that can lead to serious injury or fatality. High-risk fields like agriculture, motor-vehicle manufacturing (including RVs, trailers, and mobile homes), and tourism-related industries also see a lot of workplace injuries. Problems range from skin diseases to poisoning to assaults to ergonomics issues. Even though many programs are designed to help prevent injuries, workplace accidents still occur on an alarmingly regular basis.

With the Houston workplace injury attorneys at The Ammons Law Firm on your side, you can have confidence that you will receive the finest representation in the industry and not be bullied by large corporations represented by teams of lawyers. Don’t settle for a personal injury attorney that lacks the experience and resources to obtain just results; rely on the experience and resources of The Ammons Law Firm.

Resources for Injured Workers

This state-by-state resource and reports database from the BLS will help to guide you to your area’s data collectors, as well as state-specific reports on the BLS site.

And, of course, the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is the clearinghouse for worker safety information; they publish weekly fatality and catastrophe reports which will offer information on specific incidents in your area, complete with the names and addresses of the companies involved. The report for May 1, for example, tells about a Minnesota supermarket worker who died of an infection, an Arizona worker who got trapped in a freight elevator gate, and a Nebraska worker engulfed in grain while working on a conveyor belt. Among the many publications of interest on the OSHA site is the searchable accident investigation database.

Other sources of information, “real people,” and data would include labor unions, attorneys focusing on workers’ compensation cases, and trade groups for facilities managers, as well as professional journals and industry magazines like EHS Today.

With U.S. workers putting in hundreds of millions of hours each day, the laws of probability favor some mishaps and accidents.

Commonly Asked Questions


  • I was injured on the job. What should I do next?

    If you suffer an on-the-job injury, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. Even if you believe you are not seriously injured or that your injuries will heal on their own, it’s important that you not only make sure your injuries aren’t worse than they appear but also obtain documentation that you were treated by a medical professional in the event that you wish to file a workplace accident claim. Next, you will need to report the accident/your injuries to your employer. Timelines vary, but in most cases, you only have 30 days to make this report. If you are covered by workers’ compensation, you should next begin the process of filing your work comp claim. If your claim is denied or if you wish to pursue a third-party work injury claim, contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible.

  • What kind of compensation can I receive for my work-related injuries?

    The compensation you may be able to receive will depend on the type of claim you file. If you file a workers’ compensation claim, for instance, you may be able to recover compensation for medical bills, disability (wage replacement), vocational rehabilitation, and death benefits (for family members of wrongfully killed workers). Furthermore, disability benefits are broken down into temporary and permanent, partial and total disability. In a workers’ compensation claim, you typically cannot recover compensation for non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering. To recover for such damages, you will need to bring a third-party claim against a negligent individual or entity.

  • Do I need a workplace accident attorney?

    While you may not necessarily need an attorney to bring a workers’ compensation or workplace accident claim, it is a good idea to work with an experienced professional. Many work comp claims are unjustly denied, and employers’ insurance companies will often attempt to devalue injury claims in order to protect their bottom lines. Even navigating the initial claims filing process can be tricky, as you will need to submit all necessary paperwork and evidence by a certain set of deadlines. Failure to do so can result in unnecessary delays or claim denials. By working with an attorney, however, you help ensure that your rights are protected and that there are no mistakes in your application. An attorney can also help you fight back if you claim is denied.
