In Texas, employers are not required to have workers’ compensation insurance. That said, some choose to carry this form of coverage to avoid facing a personal injury lawsuit in the event of a workplace accident. If you were injured while performing your job duties, you must know if your employer is a non-subscriber and what your legal rights are. Remember, if your employer opted out of workers’ compensation insurance, you will go through a different process to obtain compensation.
If you are unsure if your employer is a non-subscriber, there are a few different steps you can take to find out of they have workers’ compensation or not.
Here are some ways for you to find the answer:
If your employer has workers’ compensation insurance and you sustain a work-related injury or illness, you can potentially receive several different types of benefits, including a portion of your wages and medical expenses. However, if your employer is a non-subscriber, you have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit to recover damages. In this case, you must prove negligence to successfully obtain compensation for your injuries. Regardless of the route you take, an experienced attorney is necessary to improve your chances of success.
If you were injured on-the-job, you are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. However, not all employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance in the state of Texas.
