The founder of Morgan Legal Group, Attorney Clinton Morgan, spent over a decade working in the wind industry. He is an expert at conducting investigations and understands the complexities of working at a wind power plant. If you were injured while working at a wind farm, you need an experienced wind farm injury attorney advocate to fight for justice for you.
 
Even if you are partially liable, you still may be able to seek justice for your injuries. Do not accept what the company's investigators tell you about the accident. Let the Morgan Legal Group determine liability after conducting an independent non-biased investigation of your case.

What should I do if I am injured while working at a wind farm?

 
If you are injured while working at a wind farm:
  • As soon as you can, report the accident and your injuries to your supervisor and/or your employer. Most employers have a formal accident reporting procedure. If your employer has such a procedure, use it to report your injuries.
  • Seek treatment for your injuries.  Be aware that many times you may not realize how badly you are injured because your body may be in shock because of the accident. It is essential to seek medical treatment as soon as possible to determine the severity of your injuries. 
  • Write down any information you can regarding the accident as soon as you are able. Make a detailed record of what happened before, during, and after the accident. If possible, gather contact information from colleagues who may have witnessed the accident. 
  • Contact an experienced Texas wind farm accident attorney. Be prepared to provide the details of the accident as well as any information regarding your injuries. Remember, there are a lot of factors that influence a legal case. Let an attorney determine if you have a claim or not.

Can I Sue For Money Damages?

The general public can sue the owners and operators of wind farms if they are injured due to their negligence; however, in most cases, injured workers cannot sue their employers and are limited to collecting workers compensation benefits when they get hurt on the job.
 
There is an exception to workers compensation as the exclusive remedy for workers when an employer purposely took actions that they knew might result in an injury. The courts have narrowly construed these exceptions, so injured workers are wise to seek the assistance of an experienced Texas wind farm accident attorney who can determine whether an exception is applicable.
 
If it’s not possible to sue their employer, the Morgan Legal Group may be able to identify a responsible third party. For example, if the accident was caused by a component designed and manufactured by a third-party company, the component manufacturer can be sued.
