Injured On The Job In Texas
Every year, thousands of workers across Texas are injured while on the job. Unfortunately, firefighters are at serious risk of sustaining life-altering injuries, like burn injuries or spinal cord injuries, which have a devastating impact on their lives.
Victims who are injured on the job are often forced out of work for extended periods to recover. These painful injuries can have a truly debilitating impact on the lives of workers, especially those who have to move around and be in good physical shape to work.
