Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal injuries can lead to a host of complications, from chronic pain to partial loss of movement to paralysis. Trammell Piazza has experience achieving compensation for spinal cord injury victims.

Amputation of a Limb

A workplace accident leading to amputation is a life-altering injury that can result in loss of ability to work in your chosen profession and substantial impact to quality of life.

Severe Internal Injuries

Not all injuries result in immediate symptoms. Blunt force trauma from falls, machinery accidents and heavy equipment malfunctions can result in severe internal injuries and requires responsible legal guidance.

Permanent Blindness

Machines, chemicals and other hazards can contribute to serious eye damage and even permanent blindness. You may be entitled to an eye injury claim if your workplace injury is due to negligence.

Severe Burns

We fight for compensation for the serious physical and emotional scarring in cases involving severe burns such as third-degree burns covering more than 50% of the body, fourth-, fifth- and sixth-degree burns.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can lead to short-term to lifetime symptoms from mental health and memory deficits to permanent injury that may limit a person’s ability to function on an everyday level.

Paralysis (Paraplegia, Quadriplegia, Hemiplegia)

You may have a claim against a negligent third party that can help fully compensate you for the impacts of paralysis due to a slip or fall or work-related vehicle, machinery or equipment accident.

Severe Nerve and Ligament Damage

Workplace accidents and work-related repetitive actions can result in severe nerve and ligament damage, permanent impairment and chronic pain. You may have a nerve injury lawsuit if you injury involves a third party.

Workplace Injury Negligence Claims Beyond Workers' Comp

In the majority of cases, injured employees are prohibited from suing their employers for a workplace injury. The workers’ compensation system was designed to provide benefits to injured employees such as lost wages and coverage for medical bills, regardless of blame.

Victims of severe injuries on the job are faced with balancing healthcare decisions and recovery while they are overwhelmed with hospitalizations, doctors’ appointments, medical bills and, often, long-term loss of work. In many cases, workers’ comp is not enough.

In some instances, injured workers may file a civil lawsuit against a third party that is responsible or contributed to his or her injuries. If your accident was due to a factor other than a coworker you may be able to file a third-party claim for damages on top of a workers’ comp claim. Circumstances such as construction accidents due to defective or faulty equipment, inadequate safety measures and training, or reckless conduct are situations that should be given responsible legal guidance.  Trusted and respected severe injury attorneys with extensive trial experience, Trammell Piazza is focused on successfully achieving compensation to provide for you financially after a workplace injury.

Causes of Accidents

According to the National Safety Council, an employee is injured at work every 7 seconds, and most of these accidents are preventable. You have the right not to be harmed on the job. Injuries due to faulty equipment, machinery malfunction, inadequate safety measures, and unsafe work sites should receive special legal guidance for a potential third-party negligence claim.

Mechanical or Design Defect

When injuries are sustained due to a mechanical failure at work, liability may be attributed to a manufacturer or third party negligence. Failures may be due to breakdown in components of machinery, design defect or malfunction due to failure to correctly assemble or repair equipment.

Failure to Warn or Label Equipment

An employer's lack of compliance with safety regulations concerning equipment labels warning of machinery or equipment hazards that involve an on-the-job injury can result in higher workers’ comp benefits and negligence claims.

Caught In, Compressed by Equipment

Being caught or crushed in equipment or machinery can lead to numerous serious injuries from internal injuries to amputations to death.

Explosions, Fires & Burns

A construction site or petrochemical plant fire or explosion can result in serious injury and burns and often are due to carelessness and disregard of fire safety, both of which fall under legal principles of negligence.

Safety Shutoff Malfunction

Lack of safety shutoff and other equipment failures can cause serious injury in the workplace and substantial claims from injured workers.

Struck by an Object or Equipment

Being struck by or against equipment and other equipment impacts accounts for 26% of all workplace injuries. The most common injury from a fallen object is head injury.
