Workplace Accidents in Texas
In Texas, a worker dies at his or her workplace every day. Every year since 2009, Texas has had more deaths on the job than any other state, including the highest rate per capita of the nation’s top ten most populous states.
Texas Has the Highest Rate of Workplace Fatalities in the United States
Most of the workplace deaths occur on construction sites, but one can question what makes Texas construction sites so dangerous?
Many speculate that the high death rate can be attributed to failures of certain Texas policies, some of which we are listed here:
- In the State of Texas, employers are not required to provide regular rest breaks for construction workers.
- Texas does not require workers’ compensation insurance for private employers.
- Low union participation in Texas has led to a more dangerous work environment for construction workers.
Regardless of the reasons, the rate at which construction works are dying on the job is alarmingly high, and families of those who have died as a result of negligence, gross negligence, and/or a product defect are entitled to just compensation.
Our office is based in Houston, Texas but, Mr. Sandoval has represented injured workers living in or near the following Texas Cities.
