Unlike most other states, Texas does not require employers to subscribe to workers’ compensation insurance. Instead, companies may have their own program of providing medical care and other benefits to employees who are injured on the job. Unfortunately, these programs can fall short of what injured workers and their families need.
I am San Antonio attorney Dennis L. Richard. If you have been injured on the job, and your employer does not offer the benefits you need, call 915-241-6550 for a free case evaluation. These are known as “nonsubscriber claims” since the employer does not subscribe to workers’ compensation insurance.
Proving Employer Negligence After A Workplace Injury
In nonsubscriber claims, there is no cap on the amount of compensation you may be awarded. Depending on the severity of your injuries, you could be entitled to damages for pain and suffering, loss of wages and earning capacity, and other damages. This is why it is important to hire an experienced lawyer to:
- Document the damages you have suffered
- Prove that your employer was negligent
I will work to identify all parties who may be responsible for your workplace accident, including property owners, manufacturers of defective equipment or people who don’t work for your employer.
