Since our firm was founded in Beaumont in 1969, Provost Umphrey has been a powerful and effective legal resource for injured workers seeking just compensation and families who have lost loved ones in tragic work-related accidents.
Our dedicated personal injury attorneys have taken our quest for justice for people hurt on the job throughout Texas, along the Gulf Coast and nationwide, earning thousands of beneficial verdicts and settlements for people across a wide spectrum of occupations and industries.
Many workers who are seriously injured on the job depend only on workers’ compensation and health insurance benefits for support – not always realizing that other legal avenues are viable. Workers’ comp laws in most states prohibit lawsuits against employers for negligence, but in many cases a contractor, equipment manufacturer or other party can be held financially accountable for an accident or other injury-causing event. Most such companies have insurance in place to cover damages and losses.
