Leading Causes of Texas Workplace Injuries

Information presented by the National Safety Council helps show some of the leading causes of workplace injuries. Some of the most prevalent causes, ones that continuously lead to worker hospitalizations year after year, include the following:

  • Overexertion and bodily reaction. Over-exertion can occur in a wide variety of ways when a worker uses physical effort to perform a task. Over-exertion can occur when lifting, turning, holding, pushing, carrying, or throwing. Overexertion can also lead to repetitive motion injuries that slowly injure a person over longer periods of time.
  • Slip, trip, and fall injuries. Slip trip and fall injuries can occur in various ways, including slips on wet floors, trip injuries over obstacles in pedestrian pathways, as well as falls from heights, such as from ladders, scaffolding, or roofs.
  • Contact with equipment or objects. Some workplaces involve employees working around various types of objects or equipment. This can include workers getting hit by a moving piece of machinery, bumping into a fixed object, being crushed by various types of equipment, getting struck by a rope or wire, and more. This can also include getting injured by collapsing structures.
  • Occupational illnesses. Occupational diseases and illnesses can affect individuals in a variety of workplaces, though the symptoms of these types of illnesses may not show up for some time. Some of the main occupational illnesses that affect workers include hearing loss, vision loss, respiratory diseases, occupational cancers, skin conditions, lung diseases, toxic chemical poisoning, and more.

Determining Liability After a Work Accident

Unlike traditional workplace injury claims, when you file a third-party personal injury claim, you must determine liability. The only way a civil personal injury lawsuit will be successful is if you and your attorney can show that the alleged negligent party’s actions led to the injury occurring and that the injury caused monetary damages.

An attorney will conduct a complete investigation into the claim in order to uncover the evidence needed to prove liability. Some of this evidence can include:

  • Statements from eyewitnesses to the incident
  • Photo or video surveillance footage
  • Workplace training and safety records
  • Workplace maintenance records
  • Input from accident reconstruction experts
  • All medical records associated with the incident

Your attorney will work with all parties involved to uncover the evidence they need. If other parties are not forthcoming with the evidence, your attorney will work through the court system to obtain the evidence.

Potential Damages Available After Your Injury

Individuals may be able to recover a wide variety of types of compensation if their third-party work injury claim is successful. This includes the compensation above and beyond what would typically be available through workers’ comp. Our team works diligently to help work injury victims recover both economic and non-economic damages, including the following:

  • Coverage of all medical bills associated with the workplace injury
  • Compensation for all lost wages caused by the recovery process or a disability
  • Long-term household out-of-pocket cost assistance
  • Property damage expenses
  • Physical and emotional pain and suffering damages
  • Loss of enjoyment of life damages

There is no set amount of compensation paid to a workplace injury victim in Galveston if their claim is successful. Various factors can influence compensation amounts, including the severity of the injury, whether or not there was any shared fault, how long it takes to recover, and more. We encourage you to reach out to your attorney and ask about your expected compensation recovery amount.
