Injured Contractors Find Few Remedies for On The Job Injuries in Texas

 

 Atlanta workers’ compensation lawyers are kept busy by claims filed by employees hurt on the job in a variety of scenarios. Often, the workers comp claim is simple: employee vs. employer in an administrative action pending before the Georgia State Board of Workers Compensation.

However, sometimes, workers with many different employers are working at a facility, many of whom are contractors, at the time of injury. In that situation, a Georgia workers compensation claim can be filed against the injured worker’s employer, and a third-party work injury lawsuit or construction accident lawsuit may be filed against other contractors or the premises owner for creating dangerous working conditions. Contractors who come on the property are typically in harms way—they have no training or instruction on what’s happening on the jobsite, are provided little or no information about safety issues, and, sometimes, are brought onto a job because the tasks are too dangerous for the premises owner’s own workers.

In Texas, however, the ability to file a lawsuit has been essentially stripped from contractors under Tort reform. Our oil refineries are vital components of the economy—yet they remain one of the most dangerous places to work on the planet. The Center for Public Integrity has written about the dangerous conditions which lead to on the job injury, worker’s compensation claims, and workplace death. It is available here.

Burn injury claims are difficult claims, even for the best Georgia worker’s compensation lawyer, because they present challenging medical issues and, in the third-party context, can present challenging legal issues about the duty owed to someone else’s employee. The Flynn Law Firm is privileged to represent burn injury victims across the country in work injury/third-party negligence claims arising out of an on the job accident.
