Galveston County Work Injury Lawyer
Personal Injury Representation for Victims of a Work-Related Injury
There are certain occupations that place a worker at more risk than other career fields. However, employers have a duty to obey safety regulations in order to keep employees safe. Unfortunately, many refineries, construction sites and industrial plants choose to disregard industrial occupational safety laws allowing serious accidents to result.
When employers are negligent or reckless as to the safety of their workers, they can, in some cases, be held financially accountable beyond workers' compensation benefits.
At the APFFEL LAW FIRM, in League City, we represent work accident victims throughout Harris and Galveston counties in cities such as Friendswood, Alvin, Clear Lake City and Pearland. With more than 25 years of experience handling personal injury and wrongful death claims, our founding attorney, E. A. "Trey" Apffel III, has the trial skills needed to aggressively pursue complex work injury cases.

Representing Victims of Workplace Injuries
Texas is unique as it is home to many of the nation's largest petrochemical and oil refineries, construction companies and corporations associated with the maritime industry. Jobs in these fields of employment are often dangerous, leading to catastrophic injuries when an accident occurs.
Our League City work injury law firm handles serious injury cases, such as those involving spinal cord injuries, amputation, severe burns and head trauma. In addition, we represent families of fatal work accident victims in wrongful death claims.
A History of Successful Recovery for Accident Victims
The APFFEL LAW FIRM has successfully recovered compensation for workplace injury victims injured due to:
Toxic Exposure: asbestos exposure or exposure to toxic chemicals following a chemical spill which causes chemical burns

We will work closely with you as we investigate your employer, the manufacturer of any faulty equipment, or the owner of the plant or refinery where you were injured. If we can prove negligence, we may be able to recover damages in excess of workers' compensation to cover the cost of your medical bills, lost wages and your pain and suffering.
