Attorneys Kurt Arnold, Kyle Findley, and another attorney from Arnold & Itkin filed an employer non-subscriber case on behalf of an injured worker. While working for Austin Budget Signs Inc., a company that creates and maintains signs throughout the Austin area, the employee was severely injured. The worker was using a left truck on a work site and the truck tipped over, causing the worker to be injured on a power line that he fell into. The injuries included both second and third degree burn all also his torso and arms from the power lines. Not only did his body incur horrific burns from the accident, he also fell 25 feet to the ground after colliding with the power lines causing injuries to his back and neck as well. At this time the case is pending in Travis County, Texas.
In the state of Texas, under the Texas Workers Compensation Act, employers are given the option of not offering workers compensation benefits to their employees. This legislation was instated to offer protection to both the employee and the employer, and while the employer has the choice of participating in offering compensation, not all do. Those employers who choose not subscribed to the Texas Workers' Compensation Act are considered "non-subscribers." When seeking to prove an injury in a non-subscriber claim such as this case, you will want to contact an experienced Houston injury attorney who can walk you through the process of filing your claim and proving he fault and negligence of the employer for your injury.
