Common Workplace Injuries for McLane Food Service Workers

McLane Food Service tasks can take a heavy toll on employees’ bodies over time. They often lead to:

  • Overexertion injuries (sprains, strains, back injuries, etc.) from repeatedly lifting, lowering, pushing and pulling heavy product loads
  • Slips, trips and falls suffered on hazardous warehouse surfaces (spills, debris, limited visibility, etc.)
  • Struck-by injuries occurring when employees are hit by falling objects, forklifts or other transportation equipment
  • Injury by machinery entanglement with conveyors, compactors, sorting equipment and more
  • Vehicular accidents sustained while loading/unloading trucks or during product deliveries
  • Repetitive stress/motion injuries (carpal tunnel, tendinitis, bursitis) from continuous manual tasks
  • Exposure to hazardous workplace substances like chemical cleaners, refrigerants, etc.
  • Hearing damage inflicted by constant loud noises in bustling facilities

If you’re a McLane Food Service worker who experienced any injury, ailment or occupational diseases like these while simply doing your day-to-day job responsibilities, you are likely entitled to comprehensive workers’ compensation benefits under Texas law. But actually getting those benefits out of stingy insurance companies is another battle entirely — one Husain Law + Associates — Houston Accident & Injury Lawyers, P.C. exists to fight relentlessly on your behalf.

What Benefits Does Workers’ Comp in Texas Provide?

Workplace injuries are no small concern. They can dramatically impact your ability to perform duties, make a living, cover medical costs, and provide for yourself and your loved ones. That’s why the workers’ compensation system exists — to comprehensively cover qualifying employees.

Through the tenacious efforts of Husain Law + Associates — Houston Accident & Injury Lawyers, P.C., our clients can receive Texas workers’ compensation benefits recovering:

  • 100% of medical expenses – hospitalization, surgery, doctor visits, therapy/rehab, medical equipment, prescription drugs and all other related costs stemming from your injury. These benefits extend for life if your disability is permanent/catastrophic.
  • Supplemental income benefits – If your workplace injury forces you out of work for over a week, temporary income benefits kick in at 70% of your average weekly wage to make up for lost earnings. For permanent disabilities, those income benefits can last for life at a reduced percentage.
  • Permanent partial disability benefits – When an on-the-job accident or illness leaves an employee permanently impaired (loss of limb, paralysis, etc.), additional wage benefits are paid out ongoing based on the level of bodily impairment.
  • Death benefits for fatalities – If the unthinkable occurs and a worker is killed in an on-site incident, workers’ comp provides funeral/burial expense coverage and ongoing partial wage benefits to the deceased’s legal beneficiaries.
  • Job retraining benefits – For permanently disabled workers unable to return to their previous positions due to their injuries, reimbursement for vocational rehabilitation allows them to re-skill into a new career path.

Our skilled workers’ compensation attorneys refine a comprehensive strategy from Day 1 aimed at securing every single available benefit our client qualifies for under Texas labor laws. We calculate current and future cost projections, document every angle of the claim, and aggressively negotiate the maximum lifetime payout with insurance companies to uphold your quality of life.

Why You Need a Workers’ Comp Lawyer For McLane Food Service Group Injuries

Insurance companies are not your friends when injuries occur on the clock. Far from it — they’re incentivized to pay out as little as possible on expensive workers’ compensation claims, protecting their profit margins at all costs. That’s why these corporate giants routinely:

  • Deny claims outright without proper evaluation, hoping employees won’t fight back
  • Severely undervalue settlements to part-time, contract or undocumented workers
  • Drag out cases for years through bureaucratic delays, hoping the worker will give up or settle for pennies on the dollar
  • Blame injuries on pre-existing conditions to avoid liability entirely

Simply put, the insurance game is rigged against workers — unless you have legal representation from a powerhouse like Husain Law + Associates — Houston Accident & Injury Lawyers, P.C. Our respected team knows every loophole the insurers try to wiggle through and deftly blocks them at every turn.

From handling all the complicated paperwork to enforcing compliance with Texas workers’ compensation guidelines, to zealously negotiating for maximum settlement awards, our attorneys serve as your devoted champion against the uncaring corporate insurance giants. We independently investigate every claim, gather persuasive evidence, and leverage our decades of legal experience to secure the benefits you deserve.

Even if the insurer finally approves some benefits after our involvement, you can bet they’ll try nickel-and-diming you at every turn unless our muscular representation keeps them in line. Our first priority is always upholding your rights, never letting an insurance provider take advantage of your vulnerable state after a disabling accident or injury.

We Charge Nothing Unless Your McLane Food Service Group Case Is A Winner

Working with a high-caliber workers’ compensation attorney may sound expensive, but not at Husain Law + Associates — Houston Accident & Injury Lawyers, P.C. We work on what’s called a contingency fee agreement, meaning:

  • Our services cost you no upfront money whatsoever
  • We only get paid by keeping a percentage of any settlement or award we obtain for you
  • If for any reason we fail to make a recovery in your case, you don’t owe any attorney fees

This risk-free fee arrangement allows any injured worker the ability to secure top-tier legal representation without financial concern. It also motivates our Houston workers’ comp lawyers to fight extraordinarily hard for maximum compensation, since bigger settlements mean bigger fees for us as well. Our incentives are 100% aligned with yours!

Don’t Let Deadlines Rob You Of Your Rights

Perhaps the most aggravating tactic insurers use is counting on injured employees to simply miss crucial deadlines for notifying employers or officially filing claims, only to swoop in and declare the whole case ineligible on a mere technicality.

At Husain Law + Associates — Houston Accident & Injury Lawyers, P.C., we safeguard against any foot-dragging or missed deadlines by immediately springing into action from our first call. Some key deadlines for work injury claims in Texas include:

  • Notifying your employer about your job-related injury/illness within 30 days of the incident occurring or first manifestation of the condition
  • Filing the official injured employee claim for benefits through Texas’ Division of Workers’ Compensation within 1 calendar year from the injury date
  • For occupational diseases like respiratory illnesses or lead/chemical poisoning, the claim filing deadline is 1 year from the date the worker first learned their condition was likely caused by workplace conditions

Even a short delay in reporting, documenting or initiating a legitimate workers’ comp claim can potentially jeopardize your ability to seek any coverage. That’s why the wisest move is to contact Husain Law + Associates — Houston Accident & Injury Lawyers, P.C. as soon as possible. Call us today at (713) 804-8149 to get started on the journey to getting everything you deserve.
