Workers in Austin and throughout Central Texas work incredibly hard for their paychecks. Americans spend years exhibiting amazing loyalty to their employers, but when accidents happen on the job, these same workers are often shocked that their employers pay out so little to compensate for medical bills, lost wages and other costs resulting from workplace injuries.
If you have suffered a job site injury, you might need further compensation than the amount you received from workers’ compensation. Call 512-476-9800 to schedule a free consultation with Austin workplace accident lawyer Jeremy Levine. With more than 20 years of legal experience handling a range of personal injury matters, attorney Levine will discuss your case with you and help you determine whether you could bring a personal injury claim to increase your overall compensation.

Workers’ compensation is designed to cover injured workers for all kinds of accidents occurring on the job, regardless of fault or negligence. However, workers’ compensation is often woefully inadequate to cover the full costs of accident victims’ medical expenses and lost wages.
Although workers’ compensation prohibits lawsuits from injured workers against employers, the law does allow third-party civil claims. If a third party other than your employer or co-worker somehow contributed to the accident that caused your injuries, The Levine Law Firm can bring a third-party liability claim to increase your compensation. Third parties can include vendors, manufacturers of equipment used at work, cleaners, delivery people and others.
