WORKPLACE INJURY LAWYERS

Texas has some of the hardest workers in the country – as well as some of the most dangerous industries.

And injuries within these workforces can land you at the mercy of corporations who don’t want to pay what they owe.

I was in an accident in 2017, Kevin was brought in a few years later to help represent me. He did an outstanding job and was always available for questions. This year I received a fair settlement that he helped negotiate.

What are your rights if you get injured at work in Texas?

Many people assume that if they are injured on the job, they will be covered by workers’ compensation insurance. Unfortunately, this is not always possible in Texas.

The situation in Texas is somewhat unique in that employers can opt out of the workers’ compensation program, sometimes referred to as a Texas non-subscriber. If a company is enrolled in the workers’ compensation program, an injured employee won’t be able to sue their employer directly for negligence in their injury. (The only exceptions to this rule in Texas include wrongful death cases that involve an employer’s gross negligence.)

However, if the employer is a Texas non-subscriber (if there is no workers’ compensation coverage), then an employee CAN sue their employer directly for negligence in their injury, and the employer loses certain defenses, such as the ability to argue that the employee “assumed the risk” of the job, or that some other person or company had a duty to the injured employee. (This is called a “non-delegable duty.”)

At Roven Camp, we’re here to help guide injured workers through these types of work-related injury cases.

We will help investigate your case to determine whether your employer is a subscriber or non-subscriber to the workers’ compensation program and to investigate whether a third party was at fault for your injury. Third parties who may be responsible for your injury would be anyone who partners with your employer or is involved in your workday, including:

  • Contractors or subcontractors
  • Vehicle drivers
  • Product makers
  • Property owners

If we determine that someone is responsible for your injuries, then we are ready to work with you to pursue your claim.

What should I do if I get hurt on the job in Texas?

Getting injured at work in Texas is stressful, no matter the details of your injury. But there are a few important steps to keep in mind to ensure your bases are covered.

1

Request medical attention, even if you think you feel fine. The law prohibits your employer or the carrier from choosing your doctor, treatment facility, or being present while you are examined unless you agree.

2

Complete the accident form or report of on-duty injury required – but only after you have received medical treatment and have spoken with a Texas workplace injury lawyer or your union representative.

3

Know your rights. You are not required to provide a recorded statement or interview, and should refrain from doing so before consulting an experienced injury lawyer or union representative.

4

Contact an experienced Texas workplace injury lawyer to get started on your injury case. We’ll work with you to make sure you earn the compensation you deserve to move forward with your life after this accident.
