Employees put their health and safety on the line everyday to benefit their employers. Sadly, that employer does not always step up when that employee suffers a serious injury. Fortunately, Texas law provides you several remedies. What remedy is a more complicated question.
Your rights in Texas depend, in part, on whether your employer is a subscriber to the Texas Workman’s Compensation program. That is often a difficult question to answer. If they are a subscriber, your injury will be handled almost exclusively through the workers comp system. While it is not a great program, it will provide for medical care and cover some of your lost wages. We can help you determine whether you are limited to the workers compensation system.
If your employer is not a subscriber, you have the right to bring a legal claim against your them for all of your losses. This can often result in a substantially better recovery for you. We can sue for medical expenses, wages, pain, mental anguish and suffering. We have had the pleasure of representing many workers over the years in these “non-subscriber” claims. This complicated area of the law requires a lawyer with the experience and expertise to obtain you the recovery you deserve. We would love to help you.
Call us promptly if you are injured. Do not sign anything with your employer or their insurance company without talking with us first, as you run the risk of compromising your claim. Protect yourself and your family and get the compensation you are entitled to.
