Defective tires can result in tires popping, going suddenly flat, belt and treads separating from the tire, and other serious consequences. Various factors can lead to these defects. Sometimes, oversights or mistakes during the design process can cause tire defects, while manufacturing errors can allow faulty tires to reach consumers when they should not.

How Can I Deal with a Workplace Injury in Texas?

 Posted on November 16, 2023 in Workers' Compensation

TX injury lawyerWhether you are working at a construction site or are injured in a trucking accident while on the job, accidents can cause serious problems. If you or someone you care about suffers a work injury in Texas, you might be wondering about your rights. What can you do legally? Can you get workers' compensation? Is suing your boss an option? What if someone else caused the accident? You need an El Paso County, Texas personal injury attorney to help you with the complexities of such cases.

It is important to note that the Texas Labor Code governs workers' compensation laws in the state, outlining the rights and responsibilities of both employers and employees. The system operates on a "no-fault" basis, meaning workers can receive compensation without proving that their employer's actions directly caused the injury or illness.
