Tell Us About Your Workplace Accident And Your Injuries

We represent injured workers from all types of occupations, including workers in construction, factories, oil refineries, petrochemical industries, railroads, hospitals, restaurants, hotels and more. Our clients all have one thing in common: They have suffered a serious work-related injury and need help paying for medical bills, wage loss and other hardships.

Our lawyers have the skill and experience in injury law to make a difference in the lives of injured workers. We handle all types of on-the-job injury claims, including those involving:

Construction Accidents

Construction sites are dangerous under normal circumstances. When negligence is present, avoidable accidents can turn into life-changing tragedies. We understand that every dollar counts. We are here to help you obtain maximum recovery after your construction accident injury.

Common Industrial Injuries

Industrial accidents cover the spectrum from isolated incidents to major events that kill and injury hundreds of people. At the Tylka Law Firm, we understand that any such accident — big or small — is a catastrophe for the affected victims and family members.

Chemical Leaks & Spills

As the massive Gulf Coast oil spill has shown, industrial accidents have an impact far beyond the oil rig, refinery or manufacturing facility. When toxic materials are released, it creates both public health hazards and private property damage.

Oil & Gas Accidents

The oil and gas industry is one of the most dangerous occupations in the U.S. and numerous workers suffer severe, life-changing injuries every year. If you have been injured in an oil and gas accident in Texas, it is important to know that you don’t have to handle your legal and financial problems alone. You have a strong advocate in the Tylka Law Firm.

Railroad & FELA Claims

Working on the railroad — building or repairing tracks, maintaining trains or handling cargo — has always been a hazardous job. In recognition of the dangers, injured railroad employees are granted special protection under the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA).

Scaffolding Injuries

Working on or near scaffolding is an act of faith, trusting in the apparatus itself and the people who assembled it. When the equipment fails, it usually results in serious injuries or death. Yet many times the victim or survivors do not realize that they have claims beyond workers’ compensation.

Fatal Work Accidents

If a loved one has died in a workplace accident, the shock and grief are overwhelming. Such a death is even more difficult if it turns out that safety measures were ignored or someone’s careless actions caused this tragedy.

Plant & Refinery Accidents

People who have been injured in plant accidents, or people who have lost loved ones, often find their lives permanently changed. Sometimes they feel as if they cannot go on. The Tylka Law Firm, in Galveston, helps them move forward by taking effective legal action.

Plant & Refinery Explosions

A fire or explosion at a chemical plant or oil refinery takes lives or ruins them. Many people who survive the initial blast perish or suffer great harm from falling injuries, burns or breathing toxic smoke and fumes.

Third-Party Liability Claims

Was your work injury caused by a negligent third party? A third party is not your employer or a fellow employee. Examples of third parties include subcontractors, drivers (if you were on the road for work purposes) or manufacturers of defective equipment.

When workplace accidents are caused by third parties, talking to a lawyer and filing a personal injury lawsuit may be the best way to protect your rights and your future. Such claims are above and beyond what you might obtain from a workers’ compensation claim.
