When Workers’ Comp Works

Employers in Texas have the option to purchase workers’ compensation insurance to cover their employees in case of a work-related accident. Workers’ compensation does not strictly consider liability in a work accident. As such, you can get financial benefits even if you caused your own injury due to an honest mistake. The trade-off is you cannot sue your employer for damages if you use workers’ compensation benefits.

The benefits of workers’ compensation should include:

  • 66.67% of your average weekly wages as you recover.
  • Costs of all necessary, approved medical care.
  • Mileage reimbursement if traveling for treatments.

When Work Injury Claims Are Needed

Texas considers workers’ compensation optional, which means your employer might not carry it at all. Or, you might be technically excluded from their workers’ comp coverage based on your job description or the limitations of the policy they purchased. When you are not covered by workers’ compensation benefits, you gain the right to bring a lawsuit against your employer directly for a work injury caused by some sort of negligence, like a lack of safety measures.

In a work injury claim, you can seek compensation to help pay for:

  • Medical costs
  • Rehabilitative treatments
  • Vocational retraining
  • Lost wages
  • Lessened enjoyment of life
  • Emotional trauma

You can also always consider filing a work injury claim if egregious or illegal wrongdoing caused your injury. For example, imagine if a coworker intentionally dropped a heavy tool on your foot, causing a painful and debilitating bone break. You could likely file a work injury claim against them directly, as well as collect workers’ compensation from your employer.
