San Antonio Worksite Accident Attorney
Fighting for injured and disabled workers in Texas since 1953
Texas is one of the few states that does not require employers to have workers’ compensation coverage. After a work-related injury, however, you need to know that you will be compensated for your medical expenses and lost wages as you take time off to heal. This can be through workers’ compensation or a third-party injury claim.
Whether you are unsure if you are eligible for workers’ compensation, or you are ready to file a third-party claim, it is a good idea to work with an experienced San Antonio personal injury attorney from the Law Offices of Pat Maloney who can protect your rights and look out for your best interests.

We handle a wide variety of accidents, including:
- Construction accidents. One of every five worker deaths in 2019 was in construction. The most common construction accidents include the “Fatal Four” – falling, electrocution, caught in-between, and being struck by an object. These four are the leading causes of fatalities in the workplace.
- Scaffolding accidents. Common causes of scaffolding accidents include collapse due to overloading or instability, falls from heights, electrocution, and being struck by falling objects. The consequences of scaffolding accidents can be severe, ranging from minor injuries to fatalities.
- Crane accidents. Cranes are powerful machines used to lift and move heavy loads, but they can also be dangerous if not operated or maintained properly. Accidents can occur due to a range of factors, such as crane collapse, tip-over, contact with power lines, or operator error. The consequences of crane accidents can be devastating, including severe injuries and fatalities.
- Oil field accidents. Common types of oil field accidents include fires, explosions, chemical spills, and falls from heights. The consequences of these accidents can be severe, ranging from serious injuries to fatalities, as well as massive environmental damage.

Can I file a personal injury claim for a worksite injury?
Workers’ compensation is not a mandatory type of coverage for employers in Texas. It is up to an employer whether or not to purchase this type of insurance. If your employer does offer workers’ compensation, you can file a claim under this insurance policy to request coverage for your medical bills and partial lost wages. If not, you may need to turn to a personal injury claim instead.
A personal injury (or civil) lawsuit against your employer, a coworker, a product manufacturer, a property owner, or another at-fault party could result in payment for both your economic and non-economic damages.
What damages can I seek in a San Antonio worksite accident?
The negligent party may owe you a financial award for:
- Coverage of medical expenses, current and future
- Lost income, current and future
- Pain and suffering damages
- Mental anguish
- Possible punitive damages against the company or manufacturer
