Workers' Compensation

Houston Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

Nationwide Representation for Catastrophically Injured Workers

If you’re hurt in an accident while on the job, you should take into consideration the possible legal implications of your workers’ compensation claim. In most cases, pursuing workers’ compensation prevents you from taking direct legal action against your employer. Furthermore, workers’ compensation does not cover non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering.

Should you choose to pursue workers’ compensation, you may be able to resolve the claim with a settlement offer. If not, you’ll want a workers’ compensation lawyer to help you negotiate either a fair settlement or to assist with the preparation of your court materials for litigation. To determine whether or not you deserve damages, the courts look at how the accident happened, the injuries you sustained, and how much support you’re likely to need in the future because of the accident.

At The Ammons Law Firm LLP, we accept select workers’ compensation cases on behalf of severely injured workers who are having trouble securing their rightful compensation. If your employer or their insurer has denied your claim, we may be able to help. Contact our Houston workers’ compensation lawyers for a free consultation and case evaluation.

Understanding Your Rights

While most states have slightly differing laws regarding workers’ compensation eligibility, most employees are eligible to receive workers’ compensation when they are injured on the job. An “on-the-job” injury includes any injury sustained at the workplace or while the employee was carrying out duties encompassed in the scope of his or her work. For example, a truck driver who is severely injured in a collision with a negligent motorist will likely be entitled to bring a workers’ compensation claim.

Again, each state is somewhat different, but most eligible workers are able to recover compensation for the following:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Vocational rehabilitation
  • Death benefits (for surviving family members)

Replacement wages may include temporary total disability (TTD) benefits, temporary partial disability (TPD) benefits, permanent partial disability (PPD) benefits, and permanent total disability (PTD) benefits. The extent and severity of your injuries will determine which type of workers’ compensation benefits—if any—you are entitled to receive.
