Both sudden and subtle health problems may be job related

Whether you can point to a specific moment when you were injured at your Texas workplace, or you gradually began to suspect that something was wrong, you may be eligible for assistance in paying for the medical expenses caused by the health problem. We at The Law Offices of Miller & Bicklein, P.C., often provide representation to workers whose employers did not protect their rights to a safe workplace.

The long recovery from a limb amputation

You will likely never forget the accident and the horrifying results. Whether the amputation occurred at the scene of the incident or the extensive injuries gave doctors no choice but to surgically remove the limb, you are undoubtedly struggling with many emotions and fears about your future.

Truckers can lower accident risks

The responsibility for sharing the roads in Texas belongs to all motorists, including both passenger vehicle drivers and large truck operators. According to GTG Technology Group, when an accident involving a truck and a passenger vehicle is due to driver error, data shows that truckers are far less likely to be at fault. Because they are in the larger vehicle and less vulnerable in a collision, truck drivers should use defensive driving techniques to prevent someone else's mistake from being fatal.

OSHA requires appropriate hard hats in the oil fields

People who are working in the oil fields of Texas should have the appropriate personal protective equipment. Some of these are optional, and workers may purchase these items themselves.

Driver flees the scene after striking and dragging skateboarder

Skateboarding can be a fast and fun way to get from point A to point B in San Antonio, but just like pedestrians, skateboarders are vulnerable to vehicles when they leave the sidewalks. When they ride against traffic, keep to the sides of the road and cross at intersections or crosswalks, they reduce the chances that a careless driver will not see them. Unfortunately, not every driver acts responsibly while behind the wheel.
