First responders were able to pull 5 of the workers from the rubble. Tragically, one worker, Raul Ortega Cabrera, didn’t make it out of the accident alive. Monday afternoon, six construction workers who […]

Unlike most other states, Texas does not require employers to carry workers' compensation insurance. This comes as a surprise to most people, but it's not necessarily a bad thing for the victim. While workers' compensation insurance provides injured workers with free medical care and a portion of their lost wages regardless of who was at fault for the injury, it essentially punishes the victim for an injury which may not have been their fault by arbitrarily reducing their pay and limiting their options.
Most employers in Texas are happy to carry workers' compensation insurance. Not because it's good for employees, but because it shields the company from liability.
If someone is injured or killed on the job in Texas and the employer subscribes to state-run workers' comp, the victim and/or their family is barred from filing a negligence claim against the company (except when gross negligence is involved) by law. While this is a great deal for employers, victims are afforded no leverage, cannot see their own doctor, and are often denied coverage for a variety of reasons.
If you were injured at work and your employer does not carry workers' comp, we urge you to call us as soon as possible. The Dallas works accident attorneys at Rasansky Law Firm have considerable experience with nonsubscriber work injury claims, and we're happy to explain the options available to you and your family for no cost. In fact, we never charge a penny unless we actually put money in your pocket. To discuss the facts of your case with us today, call (214) 617-1886 (toll-free) 24 hours a day.
When an employer opts out of workers' comp, on-the-job injuries are treated just like any other personal injury claim. While victims are free to accept any compensation/support from their employers, understand that you have no guarantee they will hold their end of the bargain. You can be fired at any time for no reason in Texas, and if the company decides to stop paying for treatment or your lost wages, you will then have to find an attorney willing to help you (which can be extremely difficult if some time has passed).
Unfortunately, we see this exact scenario play out very often. We understand your reluctance to "lawyer up" following a workplace injury, but the truth is that employers are worried about their bottom line. Even if they're very receptive and supportive now, once your medical bills begin coming in, they will almost always change their tune.
While workers' compensation claims only cover approved medical bills and a portion of your lost wages (and only after missing several days), nonsubscriber claims allow you to seek compensation for 100% of your related losses. Not only do you deserve 100% of your lost wages, you also deserve compensation for pain and suffering, physical impairment, any out-of-pocket expenses, and more. If your injury prevents you from returning to work in your career field, you also deserve compensation for the income you would have been able to earn had you not suffered your injury.
