You have worked for your employer for many years, and have just suffered a serious on-the-job injury. No problem. All of your medical bills and lost wages will be covered by your employer, right? Unfortunately, most of the time, you will not receive anything from your employer.

Under Texas law, the type of benefits you receive depends upon whether your employer subscribes to the State-run workers’ compensation program. If your employer is a workers’ compensation subscriber, you are automatically entitled to certain defined benefits for your medical expenses and a percentage of your lost wages. In most of these cases, you will not need legal representation.

Your employer does not, however, have to subscribe to the State’s workers’ compensation system. If they do not, they are a “non-subscriber.” In that event, you can sue your employer for all of your damages if you can show that the employer was negligent in connection with your workplace injury. Recovery against a non-subscriber can be significantly larger than what you would receive under the workers’ compensation system.

The first thing you should do after being injured on the job is to seek medical attention. The second thing you should do is to contact the Fort Worth Law Office of Chad T. Goetz. That way, you can make sure you have protection in dealing with your employer or its insurance company. Often, the employer will try to point the finger at you even though you are the victim.

Having workplace injury attorney Chad Goetz on your side will even the playing field.

When you go to a business or a residence, you assume that the premises will be safe. In fact, property owners have a duty to maintain safe conditions on their properties. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Too often, my clients suffer injuries from undisclosed dangers on the property. This can range from a missing drain cover to a broken step. These cases are called premises liability claims. If you are injured, it is important to take photos or video of the area where you were injured as soon as possible, before the area is repaired or corrected. This may be difficult to do but it is critical to preserve evidence of the condition which injured you. If you have been injured by a dangerous condition on someone’s property, call my office as soon as you can so that I can make the property owner accountable.

Families suffer not only tremendous emotional pain but also financial losses when a wrongful death occurs.

The death of a loved one as the result of an accident is the most devastating loss a family can suffer. Overwhelmed by grief, surviving spouses, parents or even children are in no position to take the steps needed to protect their rights. The insurance companies know that and often use these times to try to get your claims settled for as little as possible.

An experienced wrongful death attorney can take the burden for you and your family in dealing with the unpleasantness of insurance companies and claims.

Families suffer not only tremendous emotional pain but also financial losses when a wrongful death occurs. Often, the deceased’s family depends on him or her for financial support, support that goes away suddenly and without warning. Only by having a zealous advocate can you make sure your interests are being protected. Chad Goetz is that advocate.

Chad Goetz has handled a variety of wrongful death claims, including:

Motorcycle Accident
Medical Malpractice
Nursing Home Neglect
Automobile Accident
Negligent Conduct

Contact Chad Goetz and let him help you through this tragic time.

Doctors and medical professionals hold a very high place in today’s society, and rightfully so. They perform vital services which can save lives. But they are also human and make mistakes. Unfortunately, when a medical professional makes a medical mistake, it can have devastating circumstances, which can include death, birth injuries, brain damage or paralysis. These mistakes are often preventable or obvious, but the playing field is not level. Texas laws make it very difficult to pursue a medical malpractice case, and the hurdles are many.

That is why it is important when these catastrophic events occur to have someone taking the steps needed to pursue your rights. It is vitally important to preserve critical evidence from the outset and Chad Goetz can guide you thorough this process, from collecting important medical records to investigating the cause of the accident. Chad Goetz is your ally in your fight for justice.

Mr. Goetz accepts personal injury cases on a contingent basis. That means upon winning a case or obtaining a settlement, Mr. Goetz receives a percentage of the total recovery as his fee. Mr. Goetz pays all costs and expenses, which are reimbursed only when there is a recovery. You will never have to pay anything out of your pocket.

Personal Injury Attorney

I have been honored to help Texans with their legal issues since 1986. After I practiced with larger firms for over a decade, I was able to start my solo practice in 1998 and now handle only personal injury cases. My clients have one thing in common – they are all simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. Nobody asks to be injured, and nobody asks to be in pain. When my clients hire me, they know that I will be available and responsive, which is one of the advantages of having a solo practice. Every client deserves personal attention.

I was born in Austin and raised in Arlington, in a family of ten. The legal profession must be in our blood because three of my siblings are also Tarrant County attorneys. I received both my bachelor degree and law degree at the University of Texas in Austin. I have been fortunate to be able to do what I love for a living and get tremendous satisfaction in seeing my clients get the compensation they deserve.

When I'm not spending time with my beautiful family, I love sports, travel, running and hiking, music and cooking.
