Workplace injuries can range from minor accidents to severe, life-altering conditions that can significantly impact an employee’s ability to work and live normally. At Galliani Injury Law, we handle all types of workplace injury cases, including those involving nonsubscriber employers—companies that opt out of the state’s workers’ compensation system. We are committed to ensuring that all workers receive the protection and compensation they deserve, regardless of their employer’s insurance status.

Understanding Workplace Injuries

Workplace injuries can occur in any setting but are more prevalent in industries such as construction, manufacturing, transportation, and healthcare. These injuries can include:

  • Repetitive stress injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome from continuous typing or assembly line work.
  • Injuries from falls, whether from heights or on the same level due to slippery surfaces or tripping hazards.
  • Machinery accidents, involving entanglements, cuts, or crush injuries from operating heavy equipment.
  • Exposure to hazardous materials, leading to illnesses or chemical burns.
  • Overexertion injuries from lifting, pulling, or other physical tasks.

The consequences of these injuries can be temporary or permanent disability, chronic pain, and in some cases, an inability to return to work.

Understanding Nonsubscriber Options

When these injuries happen in nonsubscriber workplaces, the approach to compensation can differ significantly:

  • Nonsubscriber Employers: In Texas, some employers choose not to participate in the state workers’ compensation system. Employees injured at these workplaces may have the right to sue their employer directly for damages.
  • Increased Liability for Employers: Without workers’ compensation protection, nonsubscriber employers may be more vulnerable to lawsuits. They cannot argue that the injury was the employee’s fault or that the employee knew about the risk and accepted it.

How Galliani Injury Law Can Help

At Galliani Injury Law, our approach to workplace injury cases is thorough and proactive, ensuring that our clients receive comprehensive legal representation:

  • In-depth Case Evaluation: We start by thoroughly evaluating the circumstances surrounding the injury, including workplace safety protocols, the equipment used, and witness statements.
  • Workers’ Compensation and Beyond: While workers’ compensation is often the first avenue for recovery, we also explore potential third-party claims if another party’s negligence contributed to the injury. This might include manufacturers of faulty equipment or subcontractors who did not adhere to safety standards.
  • Understanding Nonsubscriber Dynamics: We are adept at navigating the legal nuances specific to nonsubscriber workplace injuries, including proving negligence and demonstrating the full impact of injuries on our clients’ lives.
  • Determined Advocacy: We negotiate with employers and insurance companies to ensure our clients receive all the benefits and compensation they are entitled to, including medical expenses, lost wages, and compensation for pain and suffering.
  • Legal Expertise in Litigation: If necessary, we are prepared to litigate to protect our clients’ rights. We have a strong track record of successfully resolving workplace injury cases through both settlements and trials.
  • Support Throughout Recovery: Understanding the physical and emotional toll of workplace injuries, we provide ongoing support to our clients. This includes helping them navigate the complexities of medical treatment, rehabilitation, and returning to work, if possible.
