What types of Whole Foods workplace injuries qualify?

No two on-the-job injuries or stories are exactly alike, but some of the most common claims our Whole Foods worker clients deal with include:

  • Lifting/overexertion injuries (sprains, strains, back injuries, hernias, etc.) from constant stocking/shelving
  • Slip/trip and fall accidents suffered in stores/warehouses
  • Injuries from falling items/debris knocking workers
  • Repetitive stress issues (carpal tunnel, tendinitis, etc.) from checkout scanning
  • Forklift/machinery accidents involving equipment
  • Cuts, burns or exposure to hazardous substances
  • And more

If you sustained any injury, condition or occupational disease directly related to tasks performed in your Whole Foods employee duties, our Texas workers’ comp lawyers at Husain Law + Associates have you covered.

What benefits could I receive for a Whole Foods injury?

Under the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act, injured employees for companies like Whole Foods are entitled to a wide range of potential benefits, such as:

  • Full coverage of all related medical costs (hospital stays, surgeries, prescriptions, rehab/therapy, medical equipment, etc.)
  • Temporary income benefits at ~70% of your average weekly wage while you’re off recovering
  • Permanent income benefits for life-altering disabilities leaving you permanently impaired
  • Compensation for any permanent disabilities or disfigurements (i.e. amputations, paralysis, loss of limb use, etc.)
  • Vocational retraining benefits for skills to perform new work duties if permanently unable to resume your previous role
  • Death/burial benefits for families of workers killed in fatal on-site accidents

Our attorneys meticulously track every applicable benefit based on your specific injury circumstances, handling all the paperwork and aggressively negotiating maximum lifetime payouts with insurance companies so you’re fully taken care of every step of the way.

Do I have to pay anything upfront to get a workers’ comp lawyer?

Absolutely not! Husain Law + Associates — Houston Accident & Injury Lawyers, P.C. operates on what’s called a contingency fee basis for workers’ comp cases. This means:

  • You pay no upfront attorney fees at all
  • Our fees are a percentage of any final settlement/award we obtain
  • If we fail to recover any compensation for you, no fees are owed whatsoever

This allows any injured employee the ability to secure elite legal representation immediately with zero upfront costs. It also aligns our firm’s financial incentives with maximizing your payout, since bigger settlements mean bigger fees for us as well.

What’s the time limit for filing a Whole Foods workers’ comp claim?

For on-the-job injuries, there are strict statutory deadlines for both notifying your Whole Foods employer and officially filing a claim:

  • You must notify your employer about the work injury in writing within 30 days of the incident occurring
  • You must file the official injury claim paperwork with the Texas Department of Insurance within 1 year

For occupational illnesses or repetitive trauma injuries, the one-year claim filing window starts on the date you first realized (or should have realized) your health condition was work-related.

Miss either of those relatively short deadlines and you could permanently forfeit your right to pursue workers’ comp benefits through Whole Foods’ insurance. The smart move is enlisting Husain Law’s team ASAP so we ensure you check every box correctly!

Why even hire a workers’ comp attorney for a Whole Foods injury?

While Texas labor laws entitle you to workers’ comp benefits after a workplace injury, making it actually happen is a whole different ball game. The big insurance providers for corporations like Whole Foods have armies of attorneys looking for any loophole to minimize their costs and payouts on expensive injury claims.

As soon as you file a claim, they’ll start nitpicking every aspect: challenging your version of events, looking for pre-existing conditions to blame, pressure-pushing paltry settlement offers, and more. Without well-versed legal representation, it’s easy for even a straightforward injury claim to get bogged down in bureaucratic delays lasting years while your benefits remain in limbo.
