Texas is unique when it comes to your rights as an injured worker. Unlike most other states, employers in Texas are not required to provide workers’ compensation to their employees. Many do voluntarily, but some choose to go without this type of insurance plan in order to save money.
Employers who do purchase workers’ compensation insurance for their business do so for one very important reason; it prevents their employees (in most situations) from being able to sue the company for an injury sustained on the job. Companies who choose to go without this type of coverage, on the other hand, may be responsible for compensating you for every penny you lost as a result of your injury.
Not only may they be responsible for paying 100% of your lost wages and medical expenses, they may owe you significant compensation for any reduction in earning capacity, disfigurement, disability or loss of function, etc.
Do not trust your employer to get you the medical care and compensation that you and your family deserve. Call us to learn more about your options, and trust that we will keep the details of your matter private and confidential.

Time Is Not On Your Side
When it comes to a work injury claim, time is of the essence. As each day passes, it may become more-difficult to collect key evidence vital to the success of your case.
