The Workers’ Compensation Process
In Texas, most employers are required to purchase insurance to cover the costs of injury claims by workers. This insurance is known as workers’ compensation insurance. Under state laws, all claims by workers for injuries caused by the negligence of employers or co-employees must go through the workers’ compensation system. The amount of benefits received is based on the type of injury, as well as the potential duration of the injury.
Injured workers can generally recover income and medical benefits. The income benefits may cover lost wages, as well as the costs of job counseling or retraining. Medical payments are available for all treatment necessary as a result of a work accident. Surviving family members can generally recover death and burial costs.
When you hire us to help you with a workers’ compensation claim, we will prepare and file all documents necessary to get you the benefits you deserve. We will also be your advocate in all hearings and proceedings throughout the legal process.
