Helping Houston Employees Recover For Serious On-The-Job Injuries Process

According to the most recent data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics provided from the U.S. Department of Labor, approximately 3 million workers in Houston and across the nation suffered on-the-job injuries and illnesses in 2016.

Slip and falls, injuries from dangerous equipment or chemicals, electrocutions — you name it — workers in many industries suffer catastrophic injuries such as amputations and spinal cord injuries.

Time away from work, surgeries, hospital visits and physical therapy associated with workplace injuries are costly. Fortunately, in Texas, injured employees can apply for workers’ compensation benefits.

Exercise Your Right To Recover Workers’ Compensation Benefits

If you or a loved one was injured working on the job, the law allows you to rightfully recover monetary compensation. At Cole Law Firm, in Houston, Texas, we can help with all aspects relating to the workers’ compensation process. From filing the initial application to working with your employer to assisting with medical needs, our goal is to get you maximum compensation.

Additional Compensation From Third Parties

In some cases, injured workers may be able to pursue a claim against a third party who was responsible for job site injury or illness.

In addition to pursuing workers’ comp benefits, you could also recover money from the product manufacturer, seller, distributor, or another person or entity in the chain of distribution. Depending on the situation, you could even pursue punitive damages against the at-fault party.

Eddie Guerra’s Story

Attorney Mary Allen Ramprasad with a client

As I take this moment to reflect at my experience with The Cole Law Firm, I am so grateful to be in the place I am. Allow me to highlight the challenges I faced, the profound impact on my life, and the unwavering support and guidance I’ve received from my dedicated lawyer Toby Cole.

My life took a dramatic turn several years ago when I sustained a spinal cord injury while working at a warehouse.  I don’t like to talk about the incident, all I can say is it was a date that forever altered the course of my life. The spinal cord injury let me quadriplegic, and the physical and emotional toll was overwhelming. The feeling of losing control over my body and independence was incredibly challenging to accept.

Since that fateful day every aspect of my life has been significantly impacted. Tasks that once seemed simple like dressing myself and moving from one room to another, became impossible. The loss of my mobility meant that I had to rely on others for even the most basic daily activities. My dreams and aspirations were put on hold, and I grappled with the profound sense of loss and frustration.

However, even in the darkest moments. I found a glimmer of hope and strength through the incredible support network that I had around me. My family became my pillars of support providing unwavering love and encouragement. The spinal cord injury community introduced me to individuals who understood my struggles and shared their own experiences, helping me realize that I was not alone in this journey.

Reflecting on my time working with Toby brings a smile to my heart. He was a calm spirit at a time of great anxiety for me. I first met him when I was still inpatient at TIRR Memorial Hermann. He took the time to listen to my concerns and understand the intricacies of my case.

When I finally made the decision to pursue legal action, Toby knew exactly what steps to take and took  charge of the process. He became not only my advocate in the legal sense but also a trusted ally who fought tirelessly for my rights.

I’m glad to have this opportunity to express my deepest gratitude to Toby for the unwavering support and dedication. His presence in my life has been instrumental in helping me navigate the legal challenges that arose from my injury. Toby’s commitment to my case has been a positive impact on my journey toward recovery.
