When Americans go to work, they should expect that they’ll be safe.

Filing a Claim for a Work Accident Near Midland-Odessa

First, you should find out if your employer has workers’ compensation insurance. The state of Texas is the only one in the nation that doesn’t require employers to carry this type of insurance. However, many employers in the state still carry a policy for their financially and legal protection. Finding out if your employer has workers’ compensation is important because workers have a certain amount of time to report their injuries if they wish to file a claim.

Whether your employer has insurance or not, you should call a lawyer to see if workers’ compensation or a work injury lawsuit will help you the most. Workers’ compensation payments are limited and frequently don’t account for the total financial loss created by work accidents. A personal injury lawsuit can help workers obtain the compensation they need rather than the compensation they’re offered by insurance. For example, a worker with severe burn injuries might need payment for the cost of future care and lost wages—something a typical workers’ compensation policy doesn’t cover.

Successful work accident cases are those that are filed because of the negligence of an employer or another party. If a worker can prove that their injuries were preventable, they can likely recover compensation.
