Can Workers Sue Employers?

Quick answer: yes. Workers in Houston have the right to pursue legal action against their employers in case of a workplace accident. In situations where negligence or unsafe working conditions contributed to the accident, workers may be entitled to seek compensation for their injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages through a lawsuit.

Employers have a legal obligation to provide a safe working environment for their employees, including proper training, equipment, and maintenance of the premises. When these obligations are not met, an accident occurs. As a result, the employer may be held liable for any harm suffered by the workers.

On a July day in Midtown Houston, amidst the bustling construction of a future Holiday Inn, six laborers poured concrete on the seventh floor. Little did they know, their toil would soon be met with a harrowing ordeal. Without warning, the floor beneath them gave way, plunging them into a dangerous descent of 14 feet, where they landed amidst a chaotic cascade of debris.

The aftermath of this partial building collapse left these individuals not only seriously injured but also grappling with the daunting challenge of providing for themselves and their families amidst their physical and emotional turmoil.

Adding salt to their wounds, it emerged that these workers had voiced concerns to the property owners and contractors regarding the precarious conditions of the site. Yet, tragically, their pleas for attention to safety measures fell upon indifferent ears. Consequently, they were compelled to labor in an environment fraught with hazards without the requisite training and equipment for their protection. What transpired was a preventable catastrophe, a stark reminder of the dire consequences of neglecting the welfare of those who toil to build our cities.

What Can We Do When Employees Litigate against Companies?

The Law Offices of Hilda Sibrian™ helped these six workers like we help all worksite accident victims. Our Houston construction accident lawyers worked hard in each case of the lawsuit:

  • Investigation: Our personal injury lawyers conducted thorough investigations into the circumstances surrounding the accident or incident that caused the client’s injury. This involved gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses, reviewing medical records, and consulting with experts.
  • Legal Analysis: Based on the information gathered during the investigation, our Houston personal injury lawyers analyzed the legal aspects of the case. We assessed liability and identified potential legal claims that the workers could pursue.
  • Negotiation: Our personal injury lawyers negotiated with insurance companies, opposing counsel, and other parties involved in the case to reach a fair settlement on behalf of the workers. This includes advocating for compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
  • Litigation: When settlement couldn’t be reached through negotiation, our personal injury lawyers prepared and filed a lawsuit against Holiday Inn on behalf of the workers. They represent their client in court proceedings, including pre-trial motions, discovery (exchanging information between parties), and trial.

To secure various forms of compensation and support for the workers, we fought to ensure the following benefits:

  • Medical Expenses. Our Houston accident lawyers worked to ensure that the workers receive compensation for current and future medical expenses, including hospital stays, surgeries, rehabilitation, therapy, medication, and any necessary medical equipment.
  • Lost Wages. Our team sought compensation for lost wages, including any reduction in earning capacity if the injuries resulted in long-term or permanent disability.
  • Pain and Suffering. We pursued compensation for these non-economic damages, including physical pain, mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, and other intangible losses.

The primary job of personal injury lawyers from The Law Offices of Hilda Sibrian™ is to represent individuals injured due to someone else’s negligence, carelessness, or intentional actions. Personal injury lawyers specialize in tort law, which covers civil wrongs and injuries caused to someone’s person, property, or rights.
