No Attorney’s Fees unless you Recover from your Claim
Not all employers in Texas subscribe to a workers’ compensation insurance plan. Business that have chosen to “self-insure” and do not pay compensation are required to prove that 100% of the liability for an injury lies in the hands of the injured worker or that the injury was caused by the negligence of a third party. Even if you may have been partially responsible for your own accident and injury at work, the insurance defense attorneys will not be allowed to enter your own negligence into evidence. A jury would only be required to consider any amount of liability on the part of your employer. This opens up your workplace injury case to possible significant compensatory and punitive damages that workers’ compensation insurance benefits might not cover.
