On the Job Injury Lawyers in Austin
The preliminary workplace fatality injury numbers are in for 2008 and the news is not good for Texas. The federal Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the state of Texas reported the most fatal occupational injuries of any state in the nation for both 2007 and 2008. The number of fatal occupational injuries in Texas actually increased from 2007 to 2008 at a time when the overall number of fatal occupational injuries decreased overall in the United States. These statistics are startling and only show the most extreme outcomes of on-the-job injuries. Many more Texas workers are injured every year while on the job.

Causes of On-the-Job Injuries
Any injury or fatality that occurs while an employee is in the course of his or her employment is considered an on-the-job injury. Some common causes of workplace injuries include:
- Car and truck accidents;
- Chemical leaks
- Falling debris
- Oil and gas explosions
- Toxic injuries, such as those from asbestos, ammonia, and petrochemical compounds;
- Construction site accidents, such as scaffolding collapses and crane malfunctions; and
- Manufacturing accidents involving defective tools and faulty machinery.
The law in Texas provides for reimbursement for your actual damages when your employer does not maintain workers’ compensation insurance or when a third party causes your injury in the workplace. It can be difficult to navigate the workers’ compensation program or to seek reimbursement for damages outside of the workers’ compensation system at a time when you are injured or ill.
