HOW TO HANDLE YOUR WORKERS’ COMPENSATION CASE IN TEXAS

If you were injured at work or become ill as a result of your job, you may be entitled to receive benefits through the Texas Department of Insurance / Workers’ Compensation Division. Texas does not require employers to have workers’ compensation insurance through the State of Texas. Employers can choose between private insurance and insurance through the State. If an employer chooses private insurance, they are obligated to inform all employees of their choice. If you were injured while on the job our Firm can determine what type of coverage your employer elected. 

NEED TO REPORT INJURY

Employees under state workers’ compensation coverage are required to report their injury no later than 30 days after their injury occurs. Failure to do so may result in denial of coverage. It is best to notify the employer as soon as the injury happens. Your employer is required to notify the state through their “Employer’s Notice of Injury Form” in the comp system. Employee’s must file their own “Notice of Injury” form through the Texas Workers’ Compensation Commission within (1) one year after the date of injury. Insurance Carriers are notorious for denying workers’ compensation claims in the hope employees do not hire an experience law firm such as ours. Our firm is willing and ready to fight, help you prepare and file all appropriate documents. Failure to file all your state documents within the timeframe required may result in loss of income benefits and medical benefits. Do not delay call our firm today to discus your rights.
