Under Texas law, if an employer has workers’ compensation, an employee cannot sue his employer for injuries sustained on the job. However, if the injury was caused by malice or gross negligence or from a third party, you may be entitled to compensation. For example, when employers seek to cut corners, this may result in negligent training, negligent safety measures, or an indifference to the safety of workers. These decisions may lead to an unsafe condition, causing severe or debilitating injuries.
At the Law Office of Shane McClelland, we frequently handle cases involving:
- Offshore injuries
- Oil field injuries
- Refinery worker injuries
- Pipeline explosions
Dangerous conditions in the workplace may be the fault of a third party. Texas law allows an injured worker to sue a third party that is responsible for your injuries. This includes manufacturers of defective products that are used in the workplace. Manufacturers are responsible for personal injuries caused by their equipment, whether the product is used in a private home or workplace. And it may include subcontractors working on jobsites.
