Do Texas employers have to carry workers' compensation insurance?
No. According to the laws in Texas, it is not a legal requirement for employers to carry workers' comp insurance. Because the state operates under a no-fault system, you do not have to prove that your employer caused your injuries and can file a claim immediately.
I think my illness came from exposure to hazardous chemicals. Now what?
Developing health complications is unfortunately a common effect of working alongside hazardous chemicals. Workers can suffer from chronic headaches, memory loss, and asthma. It is important to secure an attorney who can review your case and determine if you can file a claim.
How much compensation will I be able to recover?
This is something we can't answer with certainty until we review your claim. The circumstances of your accident and the extent of your injuries will tell us a lot about the amount of compensation you may be eligible for. That is why you should meet with our legal team as soon as possible.
What if my employer does not want me to file a claim for my injuries?
This happens often, as employers do not want to tarnish their reputation or pay out significant amounts of money to cover medical bills. Fortunately, you are under no obligation to listen to your employer. Your right to file a claim should not be overlooked because of a disgruntled employer and our firm can walk you through the filing process.
Can I recover compensation if my family member was killed in an industrial accident?
In most cases after someone is killed on the job, surviving family members are eligible to collect death benefits. It is important to follow the necessary steps and file on time so that you do not miss out on eligibility.
