In most cases, you will immediately realize when you are injured on the job, like if you have a work accident. Sometimes, however, work injuries occur over a period of time from repetitious movements or activities.
If you are injured on the job, you may be entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits. However, if your company does not subscribe to Texas’ Workers’ Compensation System, the company may deny benefits for on the job or work accident injuries. In either case, we may also be able to pursue a claim against the company and get fair compensation for the injured employee.
The insurance carriers for employers know how to use the system to their advantage in order to limit benefits for injured workers. Individuals who suffer a work accident or injury on the job should know their legal rights so that they can receive the compensation to which they are entitled.
