Help For Nonsubscriber Injuries
When the State of Texas passed legislation related to workers’ compensation insurance in the early 1900s, it made this insurance coverage elective. While times have certainly changed, this law has remained relatively unchanged. Although there are many Texas employers that carry insurance protection, an estimated 100,000+ do not. Nonsubscriber injuries reference work injuries sustained by employees whose employers do not carry workers’ compensation insurance.
Workers who have experienced nonsubscriber injuries related to the negligence or carelessness of others may be entitled to compensation under the law including:
- Medical and hospital-related expenses.
- Replacement of lost income.
- Pain and suffering.
- Lost wages and benefits.
If nonsubscriber injuries result in the death of a victim, family members may also be entitled to compensation. A reputable lawyer will be able to advise family members about their ability to claim medical and funeral expenses and even loss of companionship and more.
In some cases, employers that do not subscribe to workers’ compensation have alternative policies in place that can benefit injured workers. Even so, employers may still be responsible for damages related to nonsubscriber injuries that result from negligence.
The Austin lawyers at The Sharp Firm will work with victims of nonsubscriber injuries - assessing their cases and exploring those claims that have merit.
