Work Injuries

Personal Injury Lawyers in Austin, Texas

Have you been hurt at work in a way that you do not think will be covered by workers’ compensation? Or, is your workers’ compensation coverage going to be inadequate for the damages you are experiencing as a result of your serious work injury? It might be better to consider filing a personal injury claim against your employer instead.

Using our mix of extensive experience, we can confidently guide you down the right legal path that leads to the most compensation.

When Would You Sue Your Employer for an Injury?

In Texas, employers do not have to purchase workers’ compensation insurance for regular employees, like so many other states require. As such, your employer might not have workers’ compensation insurance to provide you with some financial stability as you recover from a work-related injury. If they do not have workers’ compensation insurance, then you can bring a personal injury claim against them as you would any other liable party for your work injury.

What other reasons would you need to file a work injury lawsuit instead?

  • Your workers’ compensation claim was wrongfully denied or undervalued.
  • Your work injury was caused by an egregious health or safety violation.
  • Your work injury was caused by an illegal act.
  • Your work injury is technically not covered by workers’ compensation.

It must be noted that if your employer does have workers’ compensation coverage that includes you, then, in the vast majority of cases, you cannot file a lawsuit against them. Texas law requires you to attempt to use workers’ compensation benefits first and foremost, unless some truly outlying circumstances exist in your work injury case. It is always best to consult with a lawyer before moving forward to see where your case can lead.
