Dallas workplace injury lawyerMost people who work in riskier jobs are very familiar with Workers’ Compensation. It is a very well-known program that allows workers who get hurt on the job to have things like their medical bills and lost wages covered. Texas is fairly unique in that employers are not required to subscribe to Workers’ Compensation. Most other states do not give companies any choice in the matter. In Texas, however, many employers choose to forego Workers’ Compensation and opt for a different type of insurance. If you get injured at work, you should be covered under your employer’s insurance if they do not use Workers’ Compensation. If you were hurt at work and your company is a non-subscriber, you may have a few extra challenges while pursuing compensation. Jerry D.

The Differences Between Workers’ Comp and Self-Insured Claims 

Workers’ Compensation was designed and intended to create a streamlined process for injured workers to file a claim and start being compensated.

If you have ever needed compensation from a car insurance company, you have a fair idea of what to expect. This is one of the main reasons why you need an attorney to handle your non-subscriber claim.

These employers are referred to as non-subscribers. Should an employee of a non-subscriber become injured at work, the company itself may be liable to their injured employee. However, rather than simply filing a claim with an insurance company, you may need to take your employer to court. If you got hurt at work and your company does not carry workers’ compensation insurance, you should prepare for a potential lawsuit and contact an attorney immediately. 

How is the Claims Process Different if my Employer is a Non-Subscriber?

Getting compensation for your workplace injury can be somewhat more difficult. You will most likely need help from a qualified attorney, as the process can be difficult to navigate and may require litigation. However, if your litigation is successful, there are a few distinct advantages of working for a non-subscriber.
