When to File an Injury Claim, Not Workers’ Comp

Workers’ compensation works by providing medical costs and a portion of regular wages to an employee injured on-the-job, regardless of liability. It protects an employer from lawsuits or claims filed directly against them, too. Due to its benefits, most employers in Texas have workers’ compensation, but not all of them.

Texas does not require by law for employers to purchase workers’ compensation insurance. As a result, if you suffer a work injury, you might find yourself without workers’ compensation benefits available to you. When this happen, you have the option to file a claim directly against your employer, as well as any other party that might be responsible for your work injury. For example, if another employee with a history of violence assaults you unprovoked at work, then you might be able to file a claim against them for the aggression and your employer for not providing adequate security or supervision.

A work injury claim can seek the following damages and possibly more:

  • Medical costs
  • Rehabilitative care
  • Lost wages
  • Emotional trauma
  • Cost of vocational retraining as needed
  • Lessened enjoyment of life
