Question: Is workers’ compensation my only relief after a construction accident?
In Texas, if you’re injured on the job and your employer carries Workers’ Compensation insurance, that’s your only avenue of relief. Texas protects employers in that instance.
You can’t sue them for their negligence; you can only recover Workers’ Compensation benefits, which includes getting your medical expenses taken care of, getting a portion of your wages taken care of, and when a determination is made about the extent of your injury there are various forms of relief, either getting payments for a period of time or lump sum payments. If you’ve been injured on the job and there’s Workers’ Compensation available, you need to act quickly.
