The company I work for does not offer workers’ compensation coverage. I fell at work and was severely injured. What options do I have?

In Texas, employers are not required to offer workers’ compensation If your employer does not have workers’ compensation insurance you will be unable to make a claim under workers’ compensation. However, other options are available to you. To recover compensation you can file a civil claim. In cases where your employer has workers’ compensation insurance, the claim must be filed via the workers’ compensation system.

Lawsuits involving injuries on the job are treated in the same way as other personal injury lawsuits. In these lawsuits negligence needs to be shown for the injured party to receive compensation. In other words, an injured worker has to show that their accident happened because the employer did not maintain a secure workplace, for example.
