Houston Industrial Injury Attorney
Were You Injured In A Industrial Accident?
At the Hollingsworth Law Firm, our experienced Houston personal injury lawyers know that our Texas economy is supported by inherently dangerous industries like oil and gas production and refining, construction, and agriculture.
These industries require the use of heavy equipment that is often compounded by dangerous conditions that come with the territory of working in oilfields, atop large structures, on farms, and in meat packing industries throughout the state.
So, what happens when an employee or the public at large is injured by an industrial accident?
Texas, unlike other states, does not require an employer to have workers’ compensation coverage. When employers go without coverage, they are open to personal injury lawsuits from employees who are injured on the job. The same is true for people who live near industrial facilities or who are injured as passersby.
If you have been injured in an industrial accident in Texas, we can help you pursue the liable party for your complete financial recovery whether you work at the facility or not.
Our Harris County personal injury attorneys have spent more than three decades working on both sides of the courtroom, gaining unparalleled experience of the inner workings of some of the world’s largest insurance companies, and transforming that knowledge into wins for our clients.
We can pursue the same results for you and your family.
Our skilled legal staff offers services in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Mandarin because we believe in inclusion, fairness, and justice. It is only possible to successfully represent the people in our communities when we can successfully represent all people.

What Are the Most Common Types of Industrial Accidents in Texas?
Industrial accidents often result in injuries to industrial company employees during work. Other industrial accidents can impact many people or a large geographic area, even when they do not work at the location where the incident occurred.
Like other negligent causes of personal injuries in Texas, many industrial accidents could have been prevented.
Some of the most common industrial accidents and circumstances may include:
- Accidents involving heavy machinery
- Electrical accidents and electrocutions
- Exposure to toxic chemicals
- Falling debris
- Forklift accidents
- Hazardous equipment and machinery
- Impact with objects and equipment
- Maritime and offshore accidents
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Oilfield accidents and spills

- Storage structures, including silos or grain bin accidents
- Tractor or other farm equipment rollovers
- Unsanitary conditions
Our expert legal team has proven over thousands of personal injury cases, through the millions of dollars recovered for our clients, that personal attention matters.
While an estimated 96% of all personal injury cases end in a settlement outside of the courtroom, our law firm founder, Steve Hollingworth, has been the lead attorney in over 50 jury trials as lead counsel in over a dozen different Texas counties. Should your case go to trial, we will be ready to aggressively pursue the positive outcome you deserve in front of a judge and/or jury.
The insurance company will value a case more if they know the firm is willing to go to trial. At the Hollingworth Law Firm, we are more than willing — we remain trial ready.

Frequently Asked Questions for Our Industrial Accident Attorneys in Houston, Texas
Is There a Limit to the Financial Recovery I Can Pursue After a Texas Industrial Accident Injury?
When an employee is injured in an industrial accident in Texas, the damages and attorney’s fees are almost unlimited and will be dictated by the unique circumstances and injuries that occurred, and how they have impacted the individual’s life going forward. However, if the employer subscribes to workers’ compensation insurance, their coverage places a limit on the amount and type of compensation that an injured employee may receive. Those limits are set by law.
How Do I Know If My Employer is Responsible for My Industrial Accident Injuries?
Industrial accidents are complex legal issues that require the help of an experienced personal injury attorney to investigate. In some cases, the liable party could be the property owner, coworker, equipment manufacturer, or another third party.
Since 2003, we have dedicated our practice to producing real results for real people whose lives have been impacted by negligence. That includes those who have been injured or lost a loved one in industrial accidents throughout The Lone Star State. We can help you, too.
What Should I Do If My Employer Wants to Pay for My Injuries and Financial Losses Directly?
If your Texas employer proposes a direct payment for your injuries — including paid time off, medical bill compensation, or a lump sum for your complete damages — talk to a skilled industrial accident attorney in Houston right away. Employers may present a compensation package to keep you from filing a personal injury claim, but the solution may not be a viable one. The employer could back out on the “deal” at any time, which could leave you with mounting medical bills, lost wages, and additional expenses that must be paid out of your pocket. No matter how much you trust your employer, industrial accident cases should involve an experienced attorney who is focused on protecting your best interests.
