Unfortunately, filing a workers’ compensation claim in Texas is far more complicated than it should be, and the outcome can have lifelong consequences on your quality of life and ability to provide for your family.

When you file a workers compensation claim, not only will your employer do everything possible to avoid paying you your benefits, but you’ll receive substantially less than if you filed a personal injury lawsuit against your company and any other responsible parties.

Understanding Workers Compensation Benefits

Workers Compensation is type of insurance meant to provide for workers after an injury on the job. These benefits are supposed to cover medical expenses and a percentage of the worker’s prior wages or salary.

Unfortunately, Workers Comp coverage limits you to doctors selected by (and loyal to) your company and NEVER fully compensates you for your injuries, full medical expenses, and lost wages.

Often, the only way to receive FULL compensation for your injuries and damages is through a personal injury lawsuit.  Otherwise, your company will control the doctors you’re able to see, pay you pennies on the dollar for your lost wages, and refuse to compensate you for your future medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

The Downside of Receiving Workers Compensation Benefits

When you’re injured on the job, accepting workers’ compensation benefits will generally prevent you from seeing the best doctors and recovering the medical expenses, lost wages and other damages that you’d otherwise be entitled to recover through a lawsuit.

Additionally, accepting the Workers Comp benefits can make it difficult or impossible to sue a negligent employer.

As a result, injured workers are almost always better off pursuing a lawsuit directly against their employer and any other third parties or individuals that contributed to or caused the worker’s injuries and losses.

What are My Options if I’ve Been Injured at Work?

Injured workers typically have the following options after a work-related accident:

  • Accept Workers’ Compensation benefits from their employer, which prevents the injured worker from filing a lawsuit against or recovering any damages from their employer
  • File a lawsuit against their employer (assuming the employer does not provide Workers’ Compensation coverage) to recover all past and future medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, physical impairment, and any other damages they are legally entitled to
  • Accept Workers Compensation benefits from their employer, but file a lawsuit against any other third parties/companies that caused or contributed to the accident

What Types of Damages Can I Recover in a Lawsuit?

Injured workers are typically entitled to the following damages:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Past and future lost wages
  • Past and future pain and suffering
  • Past and future mental anguish
  • Past and future physical impairment and disfigurement
  • Punitive damages in cases involved fatal accidents and egregious safety violations

Why Were My Workers Compensation Benefits Denied?

Only injuries that occurred during the course and scope of an employee’s job are eligible for workers comp benefits. Additionally, if a worker is found to be in anyway responsible for the accident or their injuries, their comp claims will often be denied.
