Contact Austin Workers Comp Lawyers
Since 1978, our personal injury law firm has offered honest and competent legal counsel to injured Austinites. The firm founder’s son, Austin workers compensation attorney Aaron Allison, continues his father’s mission of pursuing justice for the wounded.
If you were hurt while working for a Texas state agency, Travis County, the City of Austin or any other state or local public body, contact our Austin workers compensation attorney for advice about resolving a job-related accident claim. Our law firm concentrates on maximizing the value of your financial recovery, while you concentrate on your physical recovery.
Public Employee Workers Compensation
Texas public employees are not covered by the state workers compensation system; instead, they present their no-fault claims for benefits to the State Office of Risk Management. However, like private sector workers compensation, these benefits are limited and are typically less than what you would recover in a personal injury lawsuit.
If someone unrelated to your employer was responsible for your injuries, Austin workers comp lawyers can file a personal injury lawsuit for damages that could include pain and suffering, future lost income and the projected future costs of medical care and rehabilitation.
Our attorney is familiar with both the proof of liability and damages in personal injury lawsuits as well as the public employee benefits procedure. We can help with your state or local employee benefit claims while investigating the facts and pursuing your rights in a negligence lawsuit. In some cases, our law firm can recover compensation for you under both systems.
We represent employees at all levels of state and local government in the Austin area, including police officers, firefighters and employees of the University of Texas. Do not assume that you can get the work injury benefits you deserve without legal assistance, and keep in mind that you could be entitled to more compensation than you think.
