Workplace Injuries

Workplace InjuriesCertain occupations put you at a higher risk for injury. However, employers have a duty to obey safety regulations in order to keep you safe. Unfortunately, many refineries, construction sites and industrial plants disregard industrial occupational safety laws. This can cause needless accidents and injuries.

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. With more than 30 years of experience handling personal injury and wrongful death claims, our founding attorney has the trial skills needed to aggressively pursue complex work injury cases.

A History Of Successful Recovery For 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 tend to be more dangerous especially when employers do not follow safety requirements.

We have 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
  • Equipment accidents: Accidents on faulty conveyor belts, forklift accidents, elevator accidents, falls from scaffolding and other heavy equipment incidents
  • Electrocutions and explosions: Serious injuries and fatalities caused by fires, electrical accidents, electrocutions, gas explosions and other industrial accident explosions
  • Maritime accidents: Oil rig accidents or accidents on tug boats, barges, ships and other large vessels

We will 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, your lost wages, and your pain and suffering.
