Employers In Texas can choose whether to carry Worker’s Compensation insurance. If they do not, then they are referred to as “non-subscribers.” When employees are injured while working for non-subscribers, the claims are not handled in the Texas work comp system. Rather, the employees normally have to hire an attorney to pursue compensation from the company or its insurance carrier in court.
Everyday, hundreds of workers are injured on the job. The construction industry is one of the most dangerous. It has the second highest number of fatalities of all industries. Studies have shown that one out of every ten construction workers will be injured on the job at some point during their career.
