Houston Industrial Injury Lawyers

Industrial workers wearing hard hats

Industrial accidents may result in a lasting physical, emotional, and financial burden on you and your family. At Hilliard Law, we are prepared to fight against large companies that have failed to protect their employees. We have a proven record of success and are well-versed in Texas laws and regulations governing industrial occupations.

Industrial occupations carry a great deal of risk. From working in a warehouse to a chemical plant, there are numerous hazards that may lead to serious accidents. Across all work industries, over two million victims sustained injuries in 2021. If a company fails to adhere to federal and state safety regulations, it may be held liable for accident injuries sustained on the job. With the help of an experienced industrial accident lawyer on your side, you may hold them accountable for accident-related damages in an industrial injury claim. 

At Hilliard Law, we understand that you should not have to pay for someone else’s negligence. For decades, we have been fierce advocates for our clients. Unlike other states, Texas does not require employers to provide workers’ compensation benefits, which means you may initiate an industrial injury lawsuit against your employer if you are harmed on the job. 

Reach out to one of our skilled industrial injury lawyers in Houston so that we can help you get the compensation you may deserve.  

Types of Industrial Injury Accidents in Houston 

Even though there are extensive laws and regulations that govern the protection and safety of industrial workers, there are still thousands of occupational fatalities annually. Inadequate training, inconsistent inspections and repairs, and safety oversights all contribute to serious industrial accidents, including the following: 

Heavy Machinery Accidents 

In some industrial occupations, heavy machinery and equipment are necessary to complete daily tasks. However, many types of machinery require specific licensing. When workers are poorly trained or inexperienced, the risk of an accident rises significantly. If you have been harmed due to heavy machinery negligence and suffered an industrial injury, the lawyers at Hilliard Law can help you fight for the compensation you deserve. 

Electrical Accidents 

An electrical accident may occur if there are safety regulation violations, lack of warning, contractor negligence, or defective wiring. You may seek an industrial injury claim against property owners, general and subcontractors, and product manufacturers if you suffered shock or burn injuries in an electrical accident. 


Explosions and burn accidents may happen in the workplace due to aging equipment, poor safety practices, lack of safety gear, or lack of training. At Hilliard Law, we can investigate the industrial injury accident to obtain evidence of negligence that led to an explosion. Any company that does not follow proper safety protocols may be held liable for accident-related damages.  

Forklift Accidents 

Forklifts are commonly used in various industrial occupations. When these machines are overloaded, improperly maintained, or incorrectly loaded, they may cause industrial injuries. If you were harmed due to forklift driver or employer negligence, you may seek damages through an industrial injury claim. 

If you or your loved one has been involved in one of these industrial accidents, you must contact our industrial injury lawyers in Houston, Texas for legal guidance. We will make sure to fight for your justice and the compensation you truly deserve.

What Are Recoverable Damages in a Successful Industrial Injury Claim? 

Industrial accident claims are complex and often require the help of a skilled industrial accident lawyer. Depending on the unique circumstances of your industrial accident and injuries, the liable parties may include the property owner, equipment manufacturer, mechanic, safety inspector, or a coworker, as well as others. 

You and your industrial injury lawyer hold the burden of proof to demonstrate liability in an industrial injury accident. In a successful claim, you may recover the following types of economic and non-economic damages: 

  • Medical expenses
  • Physical therapy or rehabilitation 
  • Surgeries 
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Physical impairment or disfigurement
  • Scarring 
  • Loss of enjoyment of life 

At Hilliard Law, our industrial injury attorneys are dedicated to fighting for the complete compensation you deserve. To build a robust claim based on evidence of negligence, we can conduct an extensive investigation into your accident in order to gather evidence relating to your case. Possible evidence may include eyewitness testimony, medical records, and surveillance footage that may demonstrate a violation of a duty of care.
