A workplace accident lawyer can help with your case
Even in tough times, millions of Americans share in the dignity of honest labor. But honest laborers can be beset by the negligent treatment of employers, contractors, business owners or fellow employees, which can lead to workplace injury accidents.

Such accidents cost Americans dearly, especially when workers toil in the construction and industrial arenas. There, many workplace accidents involve debilitating injuries that require amputation of a hand, arm, finger, foot, leg or toe. In fact, according to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, as many as 10,000 American workers annually are victims of such an amputation injury. These workers alone represent 6.5 per cent of all U.S. amputations in a given year.
Their injuries may be due to many different types of equipment malfunctions or other safety failures. But amputations are just one form of injuries that a workplace accident attorney can help you with. Other workplace injuries can include TBI, or traumatic brain injury, as well as spinal cord injury, which can result in paralysis.
Workers also can suffer crushed or mangled limbs and extremities, as well as broken bones throughout their body. Workplace injuries also may arise from benzene exposure, which can cause cancers such as leukemia and can be life-threatening. Such serious and costly cases should merit a firm response on workers' behalf. For them, the goal is to secure fair and adequate financial compensation for their pain and suffering, for their lost present and future wages, and for their medical expenses.To gain such compensation, a victim may need an experienced and knowledgeable attorney who understands employment law and what it means for victims.
Such an attorney can help victims determine their most favorable route to financial recovery. Sometimes that may mean exploring Workers Compensation options. But so-called Workers Comp alone may not be enough. Instead, a lawsuit may be necessary to gain a fitting economic payment for a workplace accident injury.
This lawsuit can be pressed by an attorney with Jim S. Adler & Associates.

Many such injured workers who need legal help are Hispanic. In fact, the troubling truth is that more Hispanic workers are being injured and killed on the job, even though worker deaths overall have actually dropped, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Indeed, over a 15-year period, America's worker deaths overall declined by about 8 per cent. But in that same time, Hispanic worker deaths increased almost 80 per cent.
Many such Hispanic deaths and injuries at work are attributable to the fact that some employers fail to train Hispanic workers properly. This negligence by employers can lead to a favorable settlement for workers in a workplace injury lawsuit.
Jim S. Adler & Associates is a bilingual law firm which readily helps Hispanic clients with their legal needs. Whether English- or Spanish-speaking, victims are encouraged to contact the established Texas law firm for help. For Americans, sharing in the dignity of work isn't enough when such work leads to debilitating or catastrophic injury. When that is the case, a workplace injury lawyer can go to work for you.
