Work Injury Attorney In Fort Worth
If you have been injured at work, you can look to workers’ compensation to provide benefits such as medical care and disability income while you are unable to work. However, workers’ compensation benefits are limited and will not compensate you for everything you have lost. For example, your disability benefits replace only two-thirds of lost wages and do not pay you anything for pain and suffering.
In certain situations, such as when your employer does not carry workers’ compensation insurance, you may have a right to seek full compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the party who caused your injury. At The Law Offices of Randall D. Moore, PLLC, we provide a free initial consultation to evaluate your case, if your employer does not carry workers’ compensation insurance.

Skilled And Trusted On-The-Job Injury Representation
Led by experienced work injury lawyer Randy Moore, our firm represents injured workers and their families throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and north Texas. We handle all cases involving different types of work-related accidents, including:
- Construction accidents: Safety procedures and equipment are supposed to be in place to protect workers, but sometimes they are not. Falling equipment, scaffolding accidents, defective safety equipment and subcontractor negligence are all serious construction accidents that can result in serious injury or death.
- Oil and gas field accidents: To get the oil or gas out of the ground, roughnecks work long days under dangerous conditions. Oil and gas drilling is a high-risk industry that causes devastating injuries to workers from blowouts, explosions and other accidents.
- Explosions: Explosions can occur on oil and gas fields and other settings due to mechanical failure or improper ventilation, improperly identified pipelines at construction sites, or improperly handled explosive chemicals.
Types Of Workplace Injuries
Whether you are a worker in a factory or warehouse, a construction worker, an oil field worker or an office worker who sits at a desk all day, you are at risk of becoming injured on the job. Our firm represents clients who have sustained all types of workplace injuries, including:
- Head injuries: Traumatic brain injuries (TBI), concussions and open head wounds can often result from falling objects, explosions, falls from heights, and slip-and-falls.
- Back injuries: An injury to your back can range from a strain, sprain or herniated disc from lifting an object to a spinal cord injury and paralysis suffered in a fall.
- Broken bones: Even a misstep on an uneven sidewalk can result in a broken bone. Fractures can occur in any situation, and even be as severe as a bone crush injury in a piece of machinery, where an entire bone is crushed or shattered.
- Burns: Any employee who works with flammable materials, such as on an oil rig or with chemicals, is at risk of becoming burned. Chemical burns can also occur in some workplaces.
- Amputations: Getting a limb or body part caught in a machine or piece of equipment may result in the amputation of that part or loss of limb due to the forces applied by the machine.
- Strains and sprains: Any muscle or joint can be strained or sprained when excessive forces are applied, such as in a work vehicle accident, lifting injury, slip-and-fall or other accident.
- Repetitive stress injuries: Workers who do the same motions every day for their job, such as those who work on computers, may suffer from repetitive stress injuries. These are conditions that develop in a certain area of the body where repetitive motion stress is applied. Carpal tunnel syndrome in the wrists and hands is one such example.
