If you have been injured in an accident in the workplace in McKinney, you have legal rights, and you
should consult with an attorney who can protect those legal rights. The McKinney workplace injury
attorneys at the Barber Law Firm take the legal rights of injured workers seriously. If you have been
injured on the job, our attorneys can help you get the compensation to which you are entitled under
workers’ compensation or under a civil lawsuit.
Typically, if you are injured at your job in McKinney due to the negligence of your employer or co-
workers, you are limited to the benefits provided by the workers’ compensation program in Texas. The
workers’ comp program normally provides for three primary types of benefits to those who are injured
on the job: medical expenses, lost wages, and a lump sum payment for permanent disability. Those
benefits apply regardless of who caused the accident – even yourself.
In some cases, you may have been injured at work by someone other than a co-worker or your
employer. When that happens, you may be able to sue that third party in civil court, separately from
your workers’ compensation award. You may be able to recover damages for negligence, premises
liability, or product liability, depending on the circumstance of the case. You may be able to recover
compensation for your pain and suffering, lost wages, medical expenses, and permanent disability.
