Workers compensation is a Texas state regulated system that helps provide certain benefits after a workplace accident occurs. The benefits received may include medical, disability or death benefits. Employers who are not subscribed to workers compensation insurance lose out on certain protections, such as escaping liability for a lawsuit.
If you’re living in Texas, then you may be surprised to know that Texas does not require employers to carry workers compensation insurance. However, employers in Texas are required by law to tell you that they do not provide workers compensation.
This may leave you in a difficult situation, especially if you’re hurt on the job. A workplace accident may require you to file a lawsuit against your employer to be compensated for any medical care and lost income due to the injury.
These are some essential steps to take if you sustain an injury in your workplace.
