Workplace injuries affect more than just your health or physical well being; they affect your ability to work and to support yourself and your family. According to the Bureau of Labor statistics, the number of Texas employees who suffered a nonfatal injury or illness that required them to take time off work in 2011 exceeded 57,000. The average number of days that each employee had to be absent from work was 9.
We here at the Pellerin Law Firm understand how detrimental it can be to have to miss work, especially if the cause is a workplace injury. At the same time, we understand that you shouldn’t have to continue working if you are injured. If you have to take time off work due to a workplace hazard or accident, contact the Pellerin Law Firm to make sure you get the proper compensation that you deserve.
