El Paso Workers' Compensation Lawyer

Do I need an attorney after an accident at work?

El Paso work accident lawyer Michael J. Gopin handles cases involving serious injuries and fatalities. At our law firm, we realize it’s not unusual for an accident to occur while you are on the job. For people who work in construction or at an oil rig, the risk of injury is higher than it is for people working in many other jobs. A serious work injury can leave you disabled, either temporarily or permanently. If you suffered a head injury, broken bones, or other serious injuries while on the job, you may be worried about paying your bills. You may not know how you will take care of your family if you can’t return to work or have to take time off to recover. You may even wonder if you have to change careers and pursue job training.

If you have any of these questions or other questions related to your job accident, call 915-613-5076 for a free consultation. Our law firm is here to help answer your questions and discuss your options. We have helped people injured on the job get the compensation and closure they need. If you or a loved one was injured, you may be entitled to compensation for past and future medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and other possible damages.

Michael J. Gopin has practiced law in El Paso since 1987. Even after more than 30 years, he still remembers his first jury case. It was two weeks after receiving his license, when he represented a person whose life had been forever changed after being blinded in a work-related incident...

What if someone other than my employer was negligent?

A common workplace injury may be the result of third-party negligence (someone other than your employer). For example, a worker on a construction site may sustain a construction injury due to the negligence of a contractor, subcontractor, or another negligent party. In such cases, you may be able to pursue damages related to pain and suffering in addition to medical treatment and lost wages.
