Workers’ Compensation Have you been injured on the job?
Employers are required to maintain safety standards, ensure a safe working environment, and protect employees from injury. When a worker is injured, it is almost always due to lax safety standards, faulty equipment, the negligence of a co-worker, or other party. Employers need to take responsibility, and make sure things are made right—whether that employer carries workers’ compensation insurance or not.
Representing Immigrants Regardless of Legal Status
To us, you are family.
All workers have rights and they are not dependent on legal status. Immigrant workers are part of the workforce that make the Texas economy one of the strongest in the nation. We protect your rights when it comes to work injuries, workers’ compensation or discrimination issues.

18 Wheeler and Commercial Vehicle Crashes Get the dedicated legal protection you need now.
Crashes involving 18-wheelers and commercial vehicles are more serious: 18-wheelers typically carry a gross vehicle weight of 80,000 lbs and the injuries caused by these heavier vehicles can be more severe. The experience required to fight against their insurance companies is more substantial than an ordinary car accident case because we’re looking into state and federal law violations, driver’s qualifications deficiencies, violated company and maintenance policies, alcohol, drug and fatigue factors, or prioritizing profits over safety. Let us fight for you if you are hurt in a crash with an 18-wheeler or commercial vehicle.
