If you’ve been hurt at work, an experienced work injury lawyer can help you defend your rights.
A work injury lawyer can help victims determine the most favorable route to financial recovery. Sometimes, that means exploring workers’ compensation options. But workers’ comp alone may not be enough. Instead, a lawsuit may be necessary to gain a fitting economic payment for a workplace accident injury.
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 an amputation injury. These workers alone represent 6.5 percent of all U.S. amputations in a given year. Many times, these amputees need the help of work accident lawyers to complete a case review and determine if a lawsuit is the right choice.
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.
There are a variety of issues a worker may suffer, including crushed or mangled limbs, broken bones, or even benzene exposure, which can cause cancers, such as leukemia, and can be life-threatening. Such serious and costly cases merit a firm response on workers’ behalf. For victims, the goal is to secure fair and adequate financial compensation for pain and suffering, for lost present and future wages, and for medical expenses. To gain such compensation, a victim needs an experienced and knowledgeable attorney who understands employment law and what it means for each specific victim. The best work injury lawyers seek to understand families’ struggles and work hard to create a successful outcome.
Many injured workers who need legal help from work accident lawyers 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. Over a 15-year period, America’s worker deaths declined by about 8 percent. But in that same time, Hispanic worker deaths increased almost 80 percent. Many 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. If you’ve been hurt on the job, lawyers can help you gain the compensation you deserve.

I was dropped from a previous law firm regarding my case before I called Jim Adler. They immediately took up my case and worked hard on it - I was always up to date with each step they took and the benefits or consequences of each. In the end, I am highly satisfied with the outcome and would not have it any other way. It took some time but I truly appreciate and want to thank everybody who helped me on this journey and worked tirelessly on it.read more

I am a Patrol Deputy for the Sheriff Office and while working one night, a drunk driver crossed the center stripe on the highway and struck my patrol vehicle head on with his pick up truck. Needless to say we (the drunk driver and I) were both lucky to survive, as the accident occurred at highway speeds.
Following my release from the hospital, I knew that I would need to have someone represent me. My employer was happy to represent me in regards to prosecuting the driver for criminal charges but, can do little in respect to the recovery of financial losses for medical bills, pain and discomfort, time lost from work etc... This is how my relationship with Jim Adler and Associates began.
Yep, you probably guessed correctly when you think of what made me choose the "Texas Hammer" to represent me. Those half obnoxious, half way entertaining commercials and radio announcements most Texans have been seeing and hearing on the TV and radio for years instantly came to mind. Yes, I wanted to "hammer" this S.O.B. for trying to kill me but, more importantly I was worried about the costs associated with the life long injuries I had sustained as a result of this drunk driver's negligent behavior.
I contacted Jim Adler and Associates and so began our relationship. I was immediately surprised by the prompt attention and the expression of genuine concern for my well being that I received from the employees of Jim Adler's office. Now as you can imagine, lawyers are not a breed that is held in very high regard by people in my profession but, my experiences with Jim Adler's office and his employees have forced me to amend my way of thinking, at least on the civil side of the house anyway. I have to chuckle when I say that because my experience as a client of Jim Adler's firm has been exceptionally pleasant. So before I venture down one of the stereotypical and infinite number of rabbit holes associated with the relationship between members of law enforcement and lawyers; I will do my best to stay focused on my experience with Jim Adler & Associates.
Upon being informed that my case had been accepted by Jim Adler's office; I was contacted by Iris Sanchez who informed me that she was to be my case manager and any questions, comments and concerns could be directed to her. I was pleasantly surprised to receive regular calls from Iris assisting with my medical appointments and future follow up appointments. Iris had informed me that Jim Adler's son, Bill Adler would be handling my case and I was even more surprised to receive several calls from Bill to discuss my case.
Now you might be thinking "what's the big deal" with the person who is representing you contacting you? In reality, you are correct in that it isn't a big deal but, what is noteworthy and what separates Jim Adler's Office from the multitude of other lawyers is the genuine expressions of concern and the desire Bill Adler conveyed to me to do their best to help me. I felt an immediate connection and instantly realized I had made the correct choice in contacting Jim Adler & Associates to handle my case.
One thing I think lawyers and police officers can agree on is the proverbial wheels of justice turn very slowly. Months go by and our professional relationship is never neglected. Through the unwavering attention of Iris Sanchez and Bill Adler himself, I never felt "out of the loop" so to speak and always had a clear understanding of where my case was at in regards to the legal process.
In conclusion, I know my brief description of my experiences with Bill Adler and, his assistant Iris Sanchez, cannot provide the credit they deserve. Together they have done an outstanding job representing their firm/employer. If you are seeking a great firm to represent your legal interests and, take comfort in establishing a professional relationship that feels more like a friendship than a casual business acquaintance, then I highly suggest Jim Adler & Associates.read more

I am very happy with Jim Adler & Associates. I did not know anyone who has ever used the Law Firm before. The staff is very friendly and treated me as if I were family. At times it got very stressful being without a job. They helped me when I was confused about the process. Mrs. Theresa Rodriguez stayed in contact with me constantly. Checking on me to see how I was doing and to let me know how things were going on there end. The Attorneys that handled my case know exactly what they are doing to take good care of me. Thank You so much Attorney's Mr.Michael Gomez and Mr.Trey Smith.read more
