EVERY CLIENT'S STORY MATTERS
Our Baytown Work Injury Attorneys Aggressively Pursue Compensation on Behalf of the Injured
Baytown Work Injury Lawyers
When an employee is injured in a Baytown workplace accident, they may be entitled to compensation from their employer, or another third party, through a personal injury claim.
Just east of Houston, Baytown lies on the banks of Trinity Bay and is known for its strong industrial economy. As a major oil-producing city, many of Baytown's largest employers are oil and gas companies. Other top employers in Baytown include healthcare, automotive and retail employers. While there are many opportunities for work in Baytown, these jobs are not without their risks.
At The de la Garza Law Group, our committed team of Baytown work injury lawyers helps injured workers understand their rights and pursue claims against the negligent parties responsible for their injuries. We command an in-depth understanding of the legal doctrines governing these cases, as well as the practical workings of the region's most common industries. This enables our lawyers to pursue full and fair compensation for our injured clients effectively.
I fully recommend The de la Garza Law Group for any legal representation. Attorney Mario de la Garza, which is fluent in English and Spanish, is very professional and passionate about his work.

Texas Workplace Injury Laws
Workers injured in a Baytown workplace accident may be able to pursue a personal injury claim against their employer or a third-party. At The de la Garza Law Group, our Baytown personal injury lawyers work closely with injured workers, their families, and their medical providers to ensure that they recover the compensation they need to overcome their injuries and move on with their lives.
Baytown Work Injury Claims Against a Negligent Employer
Employers have a legal obligation to ensure a reasonably safe workplace for all employees. However, too often, employers prioritize profit over safety, putting workers at risk of injury. When employers fail to meet their duty to workers, they can be held financially accountable.
Employers may be liable for an employee's injuries in any of the following situations:
- Failing to clear known hazards from the workplace;
- Failing to provide the necessary safety gear;
- Failing to develop reasonable safety standards;
- Operating a facility that does not comply with state and federal workplace safety standards; and
- Encouraging workers to engage in unnecessarily dangerous activity.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is the federal agency responsible for overseeing workplace safety. OSHA developed a complex list of both general and industry-specific regulations governing employers' duties to their workers. When an employer violates an OSHA standard, this may be used as evidence of an employer's negligence.
Baytown Third-Party Work Injury Claims
While some Baytown on-the-job accidents are due to employers' negligence, many also involve third parties' careless or reckless acts. Through a third-party work injury claim, an injured worker can pursue a claim for damages against a negligent third party. Third-party injury claims are often based on the following types of accidents:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Construction accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Electrocution accidents
- Heavy equipment accidents
- Explosions and fires
A third-party claim can be brought against any negligent party. If you were injured on the job, you might have a third-party claim against any of the following:
- A motorist who caused a Baytown car accident;
- Businesses or other landowners who failed to take the necessary precautions to ensure their property was reasonably safe;
- Manufacturers of dangerous or defective products; and
- Negligent workers employed by another company.

I was fortunate to have him on my team and recommend him highly.
Mario de la Garza is a good lawyer. He secured insurance reimbursement for a personal injury that has taken 2.5 years settle. He was compassionate and patient and provided good counsel when solutions appeared non- existent. He was tenacious with medical providers, coordinated payments on a timely basis and worked well with insurance companies. I was fortunate to have him on my team and recommend him highly. - HP

Mario fought for every single penny in my case.
I was in a 18 wheeler car accident late August 2019. And as soon I got out the hospital, I looked up a good Injury attorney law firm to help me with this case. And the De la Garza law firm was the first one to pop up. They took care of me throughout the nine months. They have a great staff. With great people. I give them 5/5 stars. Mario fought for every single penny in my case. You got to respect a lawyer that’s willing to go beyond for you. I highly recommend De la Garza’s law firm. Thank you guys. - JW
I would definitely use Mario again.
The one thing that made me at ease with him was that when I would text him, I would get a response every time within 10 minutes or less. There was always an answer from him every time I had a question. He was always on time or a few minutes early when we had to meet up for things pertaining to my case. He would even work & reach out to me about my case on Saturdays & Sundays (7 days a week). I would definitely use Mario again if needed and would highly recommend him to someone else needing an attorney. - Robert C.
We are extremely grateful to The de la Garza Law Group
Our case pertained to an auto-pedestrian collision involving a commercial vehicle that resulted in catastrophic injuries to my brother. Unfortunately, and ultimately these injuries resulted in his wrongful death due to this hit and run in the Houston area. On behalf of my family, we are extremely grateful to The de la Garza Law Group for all their legal assistance. Mario de la Garza personally assisted in all legal matters pertaining to/and getting settlements for all medical bills and restitution for the family until the matter was concluded. We highly recommend this firm.

It’s like a breath of fresh air having someone like Mario fight for you.
I have been a client of Mr. De la Garza two times now where he shows professionalism and honesty and a definite care for the people he represents. I got in a car accident in February and it caused such a hardship coming close to an end. It’s like a breath of fresh air having someone like Mario not only represent you but fight for you. I hope not to have any more accidents but if I did I will look forward to working with him again! – Ashley V.
