On the Job Injury

Many Texas are injured while on the job.

Many employers have health plans or worker's compensation coverage applicable for on the job injuries.  If you are hurt at work, you may have a claim in addition to your benefits provided from your employer.

If you are injured as the result of the fault of a third party, you may have what is known as a third party claim. 
An example of this type of claim would be if you were driving in the furtherance of your employer's business and were involved in an automobile accident as the result of someone else's fault.  You may have a claim for work related benefits as well as a claim against the at fault driver.  There are many situations where an employee may have a third party claim which would allow you to seek benefits over and above any work related benefits.  On some job sites that have multiple companies working on the same project, an injury may be caused by an individual or company not related to your employer that would allow a third party claim.  Another situation where an employee may have a third party claim would be if the employee was injured as a result of dangerous or defective equipment on a job site.

There may also be employee injuries caused by the fault of their employer when their employer does not carry worker's compensation insurance.  These claims may be known as non-subscriber claims, and may afford the employee the right to seek damages against their employer.  Some claims may be covered by arbitration agreements under their employee benefit program with their employer.

If you are injured on the job, there are legal deadlines that may apply to you that must be met in order to protect your rights.  The failure to meet these deadlines may prevent you from recovery for your injury.  Our office will evaluate all applicable deadlines if you sustain an on the job injury.
