What To Do After A Houston Workplace Accident
There are numerous people injured throughout Houston every year in on-the-job accidents. If you have been hurt while performing your work duties, you might wonder where to turn or what to do. Help is available. Workers’ compensation is a state-regulated system that ensure employees who are covered by the program have medical benefits a portion of their wages if they get hurt or ill because of a work-related incident. Workers’ compensation limits the liability of the employer if the injured worker decides to file a personal injury lawsuit against their employer for damages suffered. Private employers in Texas can choose whether or not to have workers’ compensation insurance coverage, so it is not required by law. Employers who don’t carry workers’ compensation coverage must report their non-coverage status along with any occupational diseases and illnesses or work-related injuries to the Division of Workers’ Compensation.
