Texas Jobsite Accident Attorney
Employers in Texas have a duty to provide a safe workplace for their employees. Employers who have purchased workers’ compensation insurance have some immunity from lawsuits. Employers who do not purchase workers’ compensation insurance for their employees are referred to as Non-Subscribers. Employees who are injured on the job site have the right to sue Non-Subscriber employers for medical bills, lost wages, physical pain, mental anguish, physical disfigurement and physical impairment, for both in the past and the future. Workplace injuries can result from accidents on the job site, as well as exposure to harmful chemicals and conditions, such as mesothelioma from asbestos exposure. Many workplace injuries result from industrial plant explosions, welding accidents, construction site falls, and unsafe heavy equipment. Employers who have purchased workers’ compensation insurance can still be sued if a death results from their gross negligence.

If your Employer doesn’t carry Texas Workers’ Compensation Insurance
If your employer is one of thousands of Texas employers who does not subscribe to the Texas workers’ compensation insurance plan, it is very important to see an experienced workplace injury attorney about your rights. Under Texas law, any amount of your own negligence, misconduct, or safety violation that may have contributed to the accident and injury cannot be considered as evidence. If your employer is found to be responsible for any amount of negligence or misconduct, you may have a legitimate claim for full and fair compensation. You won’t know if you have a legitimate workplace injury claim unless you speak with an experienced jobsite accident lawyer.
