If Your Employer Does Not Have Workers' Compensation Insurance
Many states require employers to carry workers' compensation insurance,
but Texas is not one of them. When you suffer a job-related injury in
Texas, the first thing you need to find out is whether your employer has
or doesn't have workers' compensation insurance. If you learn
that your employer is not a subscriber, you can sue for monetary damages
to compensate for your injury or disability. If you cannot determine whether
or not your employer subscribes to workers' compensation insurance
or if you learn that it is a non-subscriber, you should talk with a
Dallas personal injury attorney.
Considering Special Circumstances
There are two special circumstances where you can sue, even if your employer
does have workers' comp insurance. The first is if you can prove the
company was guilty of gross negligence that resulted in the worker's
death. If this is the case, the worker's survivors can sue the employer for
wrongful death. Second, you may be able to sue a third party if they contributed to the accident.
