Why Workplace Injuries Are Special
When you are injured at work, life changes. If you are no longer able to work, the income that you and your family depend on dries up. If the insurance company or workers’ compensation carrier fights your claim or denies the seriousness of your case, you and your family will suffer financially, physically and emotionally. If you need help today, Steve Lee is ready to meet with you, explain your rights, and start to work to get you the help you and your family need.
What About Workers’ Compensation?
Never forget: unlike almost every other state, workers’ compensation is not a mandatory program in Texas. If your employer says he doesn’t have coverage and can’t afford to pay for your medical care or lost wages, what will you do? Where will you go?
Workers’ compensation benefits and coverage have changed over the last few years; today, it can be very difficult to get the medical treatment you need in a timely manner. While paperwork swirls in the system, the injured worker is often left in pain and seemingly without recourse. If you are hurting and in need of medical treatment which the insurance company is refusing to authorize, call Steve Lee and we can help you.
Often your wage benefits may be calculated incorrectly and you and your family are not getting the income benefits you deserve. It can be difficult and confusing to get all the benefits you are entitled to under the workers’ compensation system in Texas. If you have questions, the experienced team at attorney Steve Lee’s office can answer your questions, explain your rights, and get you on the right track!

Burns, broken bones, head injuries, and neck and back injuries are all common byproducts of industrial accidents. If you or a family member has suffered a serious injury or even death, you need an experienced lawyer on your side as soon as possible. Do not wait! Insurance companies do not want to pay claims; they will try to stall you until you're too exhasted to claim your rights. When you need someone to force the insurance company to acknowledge the serious nature of your situation, let us help you and your family!
Construction accidents occur daily in the Houston area. Our economy is booming and there are lots of new buildings, high-rises, apartments, and office buildings going up in Harris, Galveston, Jefferson, and Chambers Counties. Additionally, freeways are being expanded and new highways constructed. These work areas are dangerous! With different contractors on-site, there are often communication breakdowns and this can result in someone being seriously injured or killed. When tragedy strikes, you need experienced lawyers and investigators to help protect your rights and get the injured worker and his or her family the help they deserve.
