Can You Sue For A Work-Related Injury in Texas?
Everyone deserves a safe environment to work. If you have been injured on the job, then your employer could be held responsible if they failed to perform what was required of them to ensure that the workplace is safe.
Families of Texas firefighters sue employer of loved ones
In 2009, a dangerous firefighter training exercise turned fatal when two men, Corey Galloway and Kyle Perkins, fell 8 stories and died. The Kilgore firefighters had been on a vehicle with an extended ladder. The families of the men claim the men were not adequately trained to use the machinery. A jury ruled that both the Kilgore Fire Department and manufacturer E-ONE were both at fault for the death of Perkins due to gross negligence.
The two firefighters had been inside the bucket on the ladder when the platform hit a wall, knocking the door to the bucket loose. The men were not wearing safety belts at the time. The defense attorney claims that safety belts had not come with the apparatus, but the fire department acknowledged their necessity before the training accident.
Workers’ Compensation vs Injury Lawsuit
Work-related injuries into different categories. If a worker is injured due to a defective piece of equipment or machine, then a product liability claim may be raised against the product’s manufacturer or distributor. If a worker is instead injured in a motor vehicle crash or collision, there may also be a right to file a case against those who caused the collision.
