The workers’ compensation system exists to help injured employees manage their medical expenses after an on-the-job accident. Benefits are decided on a case-by-case basis and filing for these benefits can be confusing. It is therefore very important for every Texas employee to know his or her rights when it comes to handling workplace injuries. The Texas Bulldog is experienced in Workers’ Compensation cases and work his tail off to deal with the insurance companies and get you the compensation you deserve after an accident.
Texans take pride in their work. In exchange for their time, commitment, and energy they expect to be paid fairly and treated respectfully by their employers. Employees are entitled to a safe place to do their jobs, no matter if it is behind a desk or behind a wheel. Texas law requires employers to carry worker’s compensation insurance coverage. If you are injured on-the-job you might be entitled to collect workers’ compensation payments while you are unable to work as a result of that injury.
What to do after an On-the-Job Injury
When you are injured at work you should immediately notify your supervisor and request medical treatment. Even if the injury does not seem very serious initially, it is important to have a record of what happened. Human resource departments will usually have specific procedures you are required to follow after an on-the-job injury. Texas Workers’ Compensation Law allows 30 days from the date of the injury to file a claim, but any delay in reporting can lead to lost benefits and might complicate the claims process. Unlike a personal injury lawsuit, a workers’ compensation claim is not the same as suing your employer.
