Every American worker is entitled to safe working conditions. Yet, far too often, employers fail to live up to their duties to provide these conditions, committing serious workplace safety violations. Work injuries remain a major problem throughout our country, including in Las Cruces. According to data provided by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), 2.9 million people were injured at work in the year 2015 alone.

Anyone Can Be Hurt on the Job
While not all jobs are equally dangerous, workplace injuries can (and do) happen in every field. You certainly do not need to be in a position that is considered ‘high risk’ to become a victim of an on-the-job injury. Our team has experience handling work injury cases arising from a wide variety of different professions, including:
- Construction workers
- Oilfield workers
- Other industrial or manufacturing employees
- Maintenance workers, including janitors
- Public transportation employees and private drivers
- Office workers
- State and local government employees
Types of Work Injury Cases We Handle
Work injury cases are among the most complex types of personal injury claims. One of the main reasons for this is that the specific facts and circumstances of your claim will have a considerable impact on your legal rights, and on how your case will need to proceed. Indeed, many state and federal regulations could potentially impact your case and your legal rights.
For example, if your injury is covered by a state workers’ compensation insurance program, then you will very likely need to exercise your rights under that law, instead of filing a lawsuit. Alternatively, if you are not eligible for workers’ compensation, we can help you explore how to bring your case. Our attorneys have experience handling all types of work injury cases that arise in New Mexico and Texas, including:
- New Mexico workers’ compensation claims
- Texas workers’ compensation claims
- Texas ‘non-subscriber’ work injury claims
- Work-related gross negligence/wrongful death lawsuits
- Third party work injury claims
Ultimately, regardless of the specific facts of your case, our firm is committed to helping you maximize your financial recovery. We will carefully review all of your available legal options in order to determine the best way to proceed in your case.
