Workplace injuries can be very serious. Slips and falls, contact with machinery, car accidents and other injuries can keep you out of work for weeks and potentially change your life. If you don’t have health insurance, you could be on the hook for costs that can reach six figures. And when you’re out of work, it can be tough to eat and pay the rent, never mind paying medical costs.
Imagine an injury so serious that it forces dramatic changes in your life. You might not be able to work anymore, and you might even need help with things like getting dressed in the morning. You may not be able to be the same kind of parent or spouse you used to be, and you might have to give up activities you used to enjoy. That’s what the law calls a catastrophic injury—an injury that prevents the victim from living the same life they did before.
You have rights, and our lawyers make sure those rights are respected. If you’re overwhelmed by bills after a catastrophic injury, or the insurance company refuses to help, contact us for a free consultation. You can find us at jimadler.com or 1-800-567-7575.
A crash between a car and a large truck isn’t like a crash with another car. A truck can weigh more than 20 times what a sedan weighs, and in an accident, all that extra weight turns into extra force. The truck can do far more damage to a car than another car could, which means the car sustains far more damage, and the people inside can be very seriously injured.

Workers’ compensation applies to most Texas workers, regardless of where they work. The Jones Act is different. The Jones Act is only for people who work on a ship, mobile oil platform, or other vessel that can move around in the water.

Machines are an important part of construction work. With modern machinery, construction jobs can be done much sooner. But like all machines, construction machines can be dangerous. They’re heavy, they’re powerful, and they’re often designed for tasks like cutting or digging that can be dangerous.
