Workplace Accidents In Texas
Every year, thousands of people are injured in the job. Unfortunately, some industries place workers at an increased risk for serious and catastrophic injuries. When it comes to the construction industry, workers are at a heightened risk for fatal injuries, especially when they are working at extreme heights.
When workers sustain fatal injuries in workplace accidents, it is crucial for surviving family members to contact a wrongful death attorney in Texas as soon as possible. There are some cases in which families can obtain restitution to cover the costs for funeral arrangements, lost wages, and other damages incurred from the fatal accident of a loved one.
