How & Why Would You Sue Your Employer for an Injury?

You may have heard that states require employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance to cover regular employees. However, Texas stands out as a state that does not require workers to buy a workers’ compensation policy. Yes, right now, you might not be covered by workers’ compensation. If that is the case and you get hurt at work or while completing a regular work-related duty, then you option to pursue compensation will be a work injury claim or lawsuit filed against your employer.

Examples of serious work injuries that may require a lawsuit include:

  • Slip and falls, especially from heights
  • Struck by falling object
  • Electrocution
  • Exposure to dangerous chemicals

Most employers in Texas will buy workers’ compensation insurance just to avoid the direct liability in a work injury lawsuit if they do not have it. In fact, if your employer does have workers’ compensation and you are covered in that policy, then you likely do not have the option to sue them at all, as Texas law mandates you go through the workers’ compensation system in the vast majority of cases. Not sure if you are covered or if your accident includes any outlying circumstances that would circumvent the workers’ comp system? Choosing to work with an attorney to figure out your options is always best.
