Work Injuries -

Houston Work Injury Lawyers

From houses to skyscrapers to freeways and more, skilled workers are the muscle behind a growing economy and more efficient living. While they may not be the most glamorous jobs, they are absolutely necessary and without skilled workers, there would be a significant delay in economic growth.

As necessary as labor jobs are, they are equally dangerous. Risk of injury is significantly high in the skilled worker industry and there are many fatalities associated with the occupation. When a skilled worker is injured, they may be incapable of working for months or even years. It’s common for injuries to result in long-term disabilities, severely impacting the worker’s quality of life forever. Some common occupations with high risk of injury are:

  • Construction
  • Manufacturing
  • Transporting
  • Agriculture

These jobs require familiarity with dangerous equipment, chemicals, and heavy lifting. All of which carry considerable risk.
