Occupational Injury Lawyer
Thousands of workers are injured or killed in workplace accidents each year. Employers are required to provide a reasonably safe site, to warn of hazards inherent in the workplace, to hire careful employees, to coordinate job safety and to supervise compliance with safety specifications. Still, work site injuries occur due to the inadequacy of these provisions.
When a workplace accident occurs, the owners, architects, insurance companies and manufacturers of equipment can be held responsible for inadequate safety provisions.
The Workers’ Compensation Act provides benefits to workers who are injured on the job. Unfortunately, Workers’ Compensation alone may be insufficient compensation especially in the case of very serious and catastrophic personal injuries.
Too often, employers hold the upper hand when it comes time to hold them accountable for workplace injuries. Even if the company is at fault, many employees have lower compensation and inadequate medical care provided by the employer’s doctors because they fear retribution, or even losing their job, if they hire an attorney.
BCA relishes the opportunity to take on corporations on behalf of workers’ rights. As a public policy firm, BCA has a strong commitment to championing the common worker and ensuring they are treated fairly by their employer. A notable example of this is the 2005 refinery explosion at BP’s Texas City plant. BCA represented hundreds of injured workers and a young woman named Eva Rowe who lost both of her parents to the explosion. After taking the case all the way to the Texas Supreme Court, BCA settled with BP on behalf of its clients and forced change throughout the petrochemical industry that left refineries a safer place to work.
