The Greater Houston Partnership recently identified that Harris County and surrounding areas boast 230,000 manufacturing employees, one of the largest workforces of its kind in the nation. Along with petrochemical refinery jobs, this number includes many different industrial and warehousing jobs. Unfortunately, although business in the area is booming, that doesn’t mean your chance of being injured in one of these often-dangerous occupations is diminished.
Depending on the workplace, there are numerous factors that contribute to your overall safety on the job. Did you receive adequate training? Are the tools and equipment you’re using in proper shape? Does everything comply with safety codes?
When you’re injured on the job, these factors and corresponding findings could lead to a big payout. Start by filling out a no-obligation consultation request. Simon & O’Rourke can then help guide you to the proper compensation that you deserve.
Employers will often attempt to claim fault on the part of the employee and will be prepared to defend themselves. With us fighting for you, you can rest assured that there will be no stone left unturned and you won’t be without control in what can often be very complex litigation. If you’ve been injured and had to miss work time, it can be overwhelming to confront the residual responsibilities and financial implications that pile up, including: dealing with insurance companies and medical providers, proving fault, litigation, and dealing with occupational matters.
