Worker's Compensation Lawyers in Dallas
If you have been involved in a workplace accident or have suffered injury from consistent exposure to unfavorable conditions on the job, you could very well be covered under workers' compensation benefits. Simply speaking, this is a type of coverage that will afford you medical benefits and coverage after forfeiting the common law right to sue your employer for damages. This is a way to ensure that every employee who has been injured, regardless of fault, will be able to receive the treatment and rehabilitation that they deserve – this can also sometimes extend to family members of the worker.
There are many different acts and federal laws provided to extend the protected granted to workers. The law can be favorable to the worker and works to protect their rights. Some of the examples of legislation drafted to help protect injured workers are the following:
- The Jones Act - This was created in an attempt to protect seamen who have been injured by employer negligence while on a U.S.-flagged vessel.
- The Federal Employment Liability Act – This act, also referred to as FELA, protects employees of the railroad.
- The Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act – This outlines workers' compensation benefits that are owed to maritime employees.
- The Black Lungs Benefits Act – This is one of the most specific acts as it goes to protect miners who have suffered from pneumoconiosis, also known as "black lung" disease.

I did not know what to do. I had never been hurt in a wreck before and this was a major accident that was not my fault. I reached out to Zinda Law Group and they were fantastic, answered all my questions, got me help immediately, and took care of everything!!
There comes a time when you need someone in your corner that you can trust. Our time came when we knew we needed the advice and counsel of an attorney. The day we walked into Zinda Law Group we knew we were covered.
There is a reason why this law firm has a 5 star rating. My experience with personal injury attorney Joe Caputo and all of the staff at Zinda Law Group has been excellent... I would definitely recommend Zinda Law Group.
Maria Ciara-Former Client
This is a really great firm! They settled my personal injury case in a year. Throughout the whole process, they were keeping in touch with me and helping me get the best treatment possible. They honestly know what they are doing. It was a pleasure working with these guys.
Everyone was so professional and was very interested in helping me with my issues. They were very upfront and honest about what I could expect.
I contacted Zinda Law Group after getting nowhere on my own with a personal injury case. I am so thankful I did. They took it off my plate and handled everything from appointments, to phone calls, and emails.
Injured on the job?
While many employers will push an injured employee to file through them, it is usually not to the advantage of the worker. By consulting with a knowledgeable attorney, the injured will be able to evaluate their case and determine the best way in which to file. Even though this is a no-fault type of coverage, it is still important to realize that many initial filings will be denied. To give yourself the best possible chance of success, contact a knowledgeable attorney as soon as possible.
