One draws a great deal of dignity from having a job. Employment is how we support ourselves and our families, and it is a necessity in the United States. Unfortunately, there are times when an employee is injured on the job. Besides physical harm, this causes the employee stress and anxiety. One would understandably be concerned over whether they will still have a job and if they will receive compensation from their employer. Texas’ workers’ compensation laws are supposed to put a process in place to allow for workers to keep their jobs, to be compensated, and to return to work. However, that is seldomly the case. If you have been injured on the job, then contact our Austin injury lawyers for assistance.

When someone is injured in the workplace,then they generally will not be permitted to bring a lawsuit against their employer. An exception exists for what are called non-subscribers to worker’s compensation cases and for instances in which one many need to sue a party other than their employer. For claims brought within the worker’s compensation system, one will is supposed to receive medical benefits, income benefits and, in extreme cases, death and burial benefits.
