Folks in Texas work hard. It’s simply in our DNA. We were raised that taking pay for a job half-done is wrong, so we give our all every time we punch the clock. Although honorable, that way of life can get folks in trouble after an on-the-job injury. Unless incapacitated, many Texas construction workers continue to work through the pain because if they don’t work, they don’t get paid, often leading to more severe injuries.
That sense of duty is also the reason many injured workers take too little for their workers’ comp claims. The insurance company offers to settle, and although the injured worker knows it’s too little, they take it anyway. Their family just needs the money.
However, there is another way.
If you’ve been injured in a workplace accident, it’s vitally important that you consult with an attorney before you sign anything from the insurance company. At Daniel Stark, it costs nothing to have an experienced Texas construction accident attorney review your claim. All you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call. If we feel like your settlement offer is good, we’ll let you know. If not, we’ll provide you with the right next steps for maximizing your claim.
Your injury claim is way too important to your family to blindly take the insurance company’s first offer. Contact a skilled Texas work injury lawyer instead. You’ll be glad you did.
