Workers Compensation

Were you hurt on the job in Texas, but your employer or supervisor is refusing to file an accident report? Is your employer threatening to suspend you or fire you? Are you being forced back to work, but you’re still too injured to return? Is your doctor mistreating you or not giving you the treatment you need?

If you can answer “yes” to any of these questions, you may need an attorney. Texas Workers’ Compensation laws are supposed to help you and your family make ends meet while you’re recovering, but the system doesn’t always work that way.
