Las Cruces And El Paso Construction Accident Lawyer
Under Texas and New Mexico law, workers injured on the job have the option of filing for wage benefits through their state’s workers’ compensation system. In Texas, many companies choose to opt out of the system and, instead, self-insure against injuries. However, many workers are not aware that filing a claim through their companies’ self-insurance program is not the same as workers’ compensation and, therefore, does not limit their claims to wage benefits.

The Ruhmann Law Firm is not a Texas or New Mexico workers’ compensation law firm. As a El Paso personal injury attorney, I help injured workers seek full and fair money damages from their “non-subscriber” companies that may have opted out of the workers’ comp system, as well as third parties who are held liable for the accident, including the negligent property owner, equipment manufacturer or subcontractor on site.
If you were injured on the job in West Texas, Arizona or Southern New Mexico, don’t assume that your compensation is limited to workers’ compensation benefits. Schedule a free consultation to discuss the circumstances of your accident with me. I will give you a full case evaluation, including an honest assessment of whether you can expect additional compensation beyond workers’ comp.
I have experience helping injured workers recover money damages after injuries resulting from many types of workplace accidents, including:
- Construction site accidents
- Industrial accidents and manufacturing machinery accidents
- Conveyor, hoist and crane accidents
- Falling materials and products
- Explosions, burns and electrocution
- Chemical exposure, toxic exposure
Our law firm offers a free consultation to evaluate your case. If you hire me to represent you, I will not bill you for attorneys fees unless you recover money damages in negotiated settlement or jury award.
