San Antonio Workers Compensation Lawyer
In Texas, workers who suffer injuries on the job may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. Workers’ compensation is a state-run program that provides employees with income replacement and medical benefits for injuries that occur on the job. Additionally, workers who are killed in work-related injuries are also eligible for death and burial benefits. Employers are generally required to notify employees whether or not the employee will be covered under a workers’ compensation insurance program.
What Are Third Party Claims?
You may have a third party work injury claim if your injury was caused by a person or company who is not your employer or a fellow employee. While workers’ compensation covers your expenses for an employer-caused injury, it keeps you from being able to file a lawsuit and seek a potentially greater recovery from the person or company who injured you.
Even if your employer says there is workers’ comp coverage, you may have a third party claim. Speak with an experienced workers’ comp/job injury attorney to make sure you receive the proper recovery you are entitled to.
