Dedicated Workers' Compensation Attorneys in Tyler, Texas
Helping disabled workers throughout Texas for 34 years
If you are injured or become ill at your workplace or suffer a work-related activity, you may be eligible for workers' compensation — regardless of whether the injury or illness occurred in connection with your job. You are entitled to workers' compensation benefits even in the absence of your employer’s fault or negligence.
The experienced attorneys at The Law Firm of Darrell S. Elliott, P.C. have assisted workers for 34 years in receiving fair compensation for injuries and illnesses sustained in the workplace. Our attorneys help workers obtain coverage for their workers' compensation claims, including:
Waiving workers' compensation
Accepting workers' compensation limits your rights to other remedies against a negligent employer. A personal injury claim can include compensation for general damages and pain and suffering, whereas a workers' compensation claim cannot. At The Law Firm of Darrell S. Elliott, P.C., our attorneys are skilled at analyzing whether you should waive a workers' compensation claim and seek recovery for negligence in civil court, or if you should also pursue a negligent third party.
Appealing workers' compensation decisions
If your workers' compensation claim is denied, you have a limited time to appeal the decision. The Law Firm of Darrell S. Elliott P.C. can assist you in successfully maneuvering through the complex bureaucratic process of appealing to the Texas Workers' Compensation Board.
