Our law firm provides compassionate and tenacious representation to clients in workplace injury accident cases. We help clients seek the compensation they need for their injuries, and our attorneys know how to navigate the legal system in a variety of workers’ compensation cases. Texas defines workers’ compensation as insurance coverage that provides medical benefits and income to employees who are injured on the job. This compensation also covers employees if they sustain a work-related illness. Generally, private employers can choose whether or not they provide workers’ compensation, and they must notify their employees of the amount of coverage they offer. The Texas Department of Insurance, Division of Workers’ Compensation (TDI-DWC) determines the delivery of workers’ compensation benefits to injured employees. In addition, this state agency regulates the delivery of compensation to family members of employees killed in workplace accidents. The benefits are paid by self-insured employers, government entities, self-insured groups of employers, or workers’ compensation companies. In 2015, more than 2 million occupational injury and illness cases were filed in the United States. After an injury or illness, seeking compensation from your employer is necessary for maintaining financial stability. Our San Antonio work injury attorneys at The Law Offices of Christopher Le will discuss your options, answer your questions, and represent you against insurance agencies in court if necessary. When your claim is disputed, you have several options to pursue compensation under Texas law. Benefit Review Conference, Contested Case Hearing, Appeals Panel, District Court. The first step in dispute resolution is a Benefit Review Conference, where you meet with an insurance representative at the TDI-DWC office to reach an agreement. If an agreement cannot be made, you may proceed to a contested case hearing, where a TDI-DWC representative will hear both sides of the case and make a decision. Once the decision is made, either side may file an appeal to request a review of the decision. The appeal must be presented in writing to the TDI-DWC Appeals Panel by both sides. If either party disagrees with the final decision made by the appeals panel, the case may go to court in a judicial review. From legal assistance filing a workers’ compensation claim to representation in a disputed case, our attorneys have the experience to guide you through the process. We can tenaciously fight to uphold your rights against insurance companies and help you seek compensation
When you visit somebody else's property in San Antonio or anywhere else in Texas, you expect the property to be safe and free of hazards. That's why it can be so surprising when you're injured or a loved one is injured or dies due to the negligence of a property owner or employee. While nobody expects to be injured, premises liability attorneys know accidents happen every day in Texas. What a lot of Texans might not realize is that every piece of property, whether it's private or public land, is - or should be - covered by what is called "premises liability". Whether it's a restaurant, shopping mall, retail store, hotel, office building or public park, the owners of that property are responsible for having liability insurance for instances in which someone on their property is injured. Homeowners should also carry a homeowners' property insurance policy, in case the mailman slips on the way to the front door on a wintry day or a carpenter falls off the roof while replacing a shingle. Otherwise, slipping or falling lawsuits are likely. Property owners have a legal responsibility to make sure their property - including buildings, parking lots, driveways, stairs and sidewalks - are reasonably safe for others. Landlords can be held liable if tenants are injured due to negligence. Business owners must keep their commercial property reasonably safe for visitors. Even the government can be held liable for injuries in some cases.
Dangerous Drugs and Defective Products
Defective drugs and medical devices can cause harm in several ways. Sometimes, they simply don't work - which means people who depend on them are left with an untreated medical condition. In other cases, these products have side effects that are actively harmful to the body, ranging from headaches, nausea and vomiting to depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts. Dangerous products reach the market for several reasons. For instance, companies may rush products through the market without rigorous testing, using a "fast track" through the approval process. Sometimes, the design of a medical product is flawed; on other occasions, a properly designed product is made unsafe due to manufacturing errors. Issues also emerge when physicians prescribe drugs for purposes other than their intended use, known as "off-label" use. Dangerous drug cases demand strong legal action. When you're going up against a pharmaceutical manufacturer, you need to make sure you give your case the attention it rightfully deserves. Drug companies routinely hire teams of lawyers to defend their interests, especially if they've been accused of making and marketing dangerous drugs to the public. An experienced attorney can investigate your claim and build a strong case against the drug company.
