Common office injuries eligible for workers' compensation

Workplace injuries do not just occur in industries with working conditions that are considered dangerous, such as oilfields, manufacturing and construction. There are many risks involved in white collar office jobs in Texas and around the country that could lead to a workers' compensation claim. Common injuries include strains, overexertion, falls or being hit by objects, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce, Office of Human Resources Management.

Injured in a car accident while at work? You may have a separate car accident claim.

For thousands of Texans, driving is part of their day to day job responsibilities. Whether that involves driving a car, a truck, a boat or any other vehicle, there is always the possibility of an accident.

Texas leads the nation in oilfield accident fatalities

The oilfield has always been a dangerous location to work. With the recent oil boom in Texas and around the nation, the number of oilfield accidents has risen sharply. From 2008 to 2012, the total number of deaths reported from the oilfield was 545, according to the Houston Chronicle. Out of those deaths, 216 occurred in Texas. 

What workers' compensation will pay for in Texas

Not all workplace injuries are the same. Some incidents are relatively minor, and the victim needs just a few months off of work to recover. Sadly, other victims never fully recover from their on-the-job accidents. They may become permanently disabled and never work again. Some injuries are the result of years of repetitive or difficult labor; others occur suddenly in a terrible accident.
