Protecting The Rights Of Injured Workers Since 1974
If you have been injured at work, whether because of a careless or negligent act by your nonsubscribing employer or a third party (a subcontractor, vendor or supplier, for instance), you want an experienced lawyer to help you recover full and fair compensation for your injuries. When you seek damages in a civil suit, you want an attorney who has successfully helped others in nonsubscriber employer cases get the recovery they need and deserve.
At the office of attorney William T. Wilson, we have protected the rights of personal injury victims throughout central Texas for over 40 years. Attorney William Wilson, Board Certified Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, has built his practice on a commitment to personal service and attention. When you hire us to handle your workplace injury case, you will work directly with Attorney William Wilson at all times. Though we are never afraid to take responsible parties to court to get the results you need and deserve, we can also help you resolve your claims through mediation or arbitration.
Our Workplace Injury Practice
Our workplace injury practice focuses on recovery in instances in which the employer does not carry workers’ compensation insurance (it is not mandatory in Texas) or a worker has been injured by a third party.
If your employer does not have workers’ compensation protection, we will make certain that it doesn’t try to use any of the defenses it might raise in a workers’ compensation claim. Though Texas does not mandate workers’ compensation coverage, as a penalty for not providing coverage, employers may not raise many of the defenses they would normally have (including blaming the employee for the workplace injury).
If you have been injured or disabled by someone who is not a fellow employee, you need an experienced attorney to protect your interests. A workers’ compensation claim may provide for only partial recovery. In these circumstances, we will help you file a civil lawsuit to recover damages, which will entitle you to more than you could get through workers’ compensation.
