What to Do After a Work Accident in El Paso
The state of Texas is the only one that doesn’t require workers to carry workers’ compensation insurance coverage. However, many employers in the state still choose to have one. Even if your employer has workers’ compensation coverage, you should speak with a law firm after sustaining a work-related injury.
Often, a work accident attorney can help a person secure compensation for damages that extends far beyond the coverage of a typical workers’ compensation claim. Personal injury lawsuits are meant to hold negligent parties accountable for failing to protect the well-being of someone. For example, a worker can hold a company accountable for failing to provide the safety equipment required to protect them from work-related hazards.
Employer negligence causes lifechanging injuries such as:
- Burn injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Blunt force trauma
- Crushing injuries
- Broken bones
- Toxic exposure
- Neck and back injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- And more

What Should I Do After an El Paso Work Accident?
Injured workers should take three steps after any type of work accidents. Taking these simple steps can significantly help your chances of receiving the compensation that you deserve for your injuries.
After a work accident, you should”
- Seek medical care from a doctor and facility of your choice. Make sure you inform the doctor that you were injured in a work-related accident and describe what happened to them. Remember, you have the right to choose your doctor and are not required to see the one your company sends you to. In fact, if you do see a company doctor, be careful about what you say to them and always receive a second opinion afterward.
- Inform your employer if they aren’t aware of what happened. If your company has a workers’ compensation policy, there might be a time limit you have to file a claim using it. Additionally, informing your employer of your accident helps create a record that ties your injuries to the incident.
- Talk to an attorney even if you think you might not have a claim. Often, workers’ compensation is not enough to cover the extent of a person’s injuries and speaking with a lawyer can help you discover if you have more options. If you aren’t receiving fair compensation, are experiencing delays, or are being unfairly denied coverage, a lawyer should be ready to help you.
