Workplace Injuries

Workers across Texas and Oklahoma are exposed to workplace dangers on a regular basis. Depending upon the severity, workplace injuries can leave victims in the hospital or worse. Some workplace injuries are job-site specific. Construction-site accidents, oil-field explosions and warehouse injuries can all lead to devastating injuries and even death.  Falls are common workplace incidents that happen on construction sites. Oil field explosions, construction accidents and other workplace incidents that can result in death need to be thoroughly investigated. Preventable deaths on the jobsite are absolutely unacceptable, and surviving family members need justice.

Workplace Injuries and Wrongful Death in The U.S.

In 2011, 4,609 workers were killed on the job. In 2012, 269 of 775 construction site fatalities were due to falls from elevation. Additionally, fall prevention safety standards are among the 10 most frequently cited OSHA standards. If workplaces and construction sites are not following safety standards, workers can get injured or killed. Additionally, 10 percent of deaths in the construction industry are due to victims being struck by objects. Although it may seem simple that if negligence on the behalf of an employer leads to a worker’s death, that employer should be held accountable, it’s not that simple. It can be difficult for loved ones to bring conventional lawsuits against employers in Texas and Oklahoma.

A Workplace Wrongful Death Case in Texas or Oklahoma

Unfortunately Texas and Oklahoma aren’t well known for being worker-friendly when it comes to workplace accidents. Under Texas law, it can be difficult for families of deceased employees to sue negligent workplaces if they carry workers compensation insurance. A negligent coworker or supervisor can quickly make the job site a dangerous place too. It may also be necessary to name a third party in a wrongful death lawsuit.
