Were You Seriously Injured On The Job?
There are entire federal and state agencies dedicated to creating and enforcing rules and regulations to keep workers safe, but no matter how many safety measures are introduced, reckless and negligent behavior will always pose a risk to people. According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than 500 workers were killed on the job in Texas, nearly 200 more than the next state on the list. In fact, Texas has sat at the top of the list of most workplace deaths in the nation 11 times between 2001 and 2014.
