Commentary on Delivery Van Accident off Marine Creek in Fort Worth

There are a few factors which can make this a rather complex situation. One is that Texas dos not require workers' comp for companies, which means a worker injured on the job may retain their right to pursue a resolution through the courts. Beyond that however, the conditions surrounding the specific accident can also make things challenging.

I had a loading dock case a while back, for example, where the condition of the property was responsible for the accident. The lot approaching the loading dock was basically a deep 'v' shape, so truck drivers essentially had to recklessly gun it to get up the steep grade. It was obvious someone would get hurt, but the property owners made no effort to fix it.

Whatever happened here, folks can't just assume workers' comp and OSHA have everything under control. Getting victims and families the help they need usually means conducting more thorough independent investigations.
