In Texas, workers’ comp is not a state requirement. To protect themselves from personal injury lawsuits, however, most companies carry private workers’ comp insurance. When a business chooses to make their own rules and pursue a private policy, it is referred to as a “non-subscriber.” Walmart is one of the most notorious non-subscribers in all of Texas and is well known for making its own rules when it comes to workers’ comp.
To take advantage of your benefits without delays or other complications, you may need a seasoned Beaumont non-subscriber attorney to help you through the claims process.
At The Daspit Law Firm, we understand Texas workers’ comp regulations and are not afraid to pursue a lawsuit if you are not fully and fairly compensated by Walmart or any other non-subscriber.
Until May of 2019, Walmart was the largest retailer in the world. In 2018, the company reported $514.4 billion in total revenue and was proud to hire approximately 2.2 million associates at its 11,718 locations worldwide.
Each of these associates, who work hourly, managerial, and other roles are exposed to the risk of accidents and injuries in the workplace, just like any other employee in the United States. In every state except Texas, these employees are protected by mandatory, statewide workers’ comp policies.
Nevertheless, in Texas, any worker who slips and falls, is struck by an object, hurts themselves lifting, or is involved in a parking lot accident at work, is covered at Walmart’s discretion.
Injured workers must fastidiously follow company guidelines to claim benefits for injury-related medical expenses, lost wages, disability, and death. Because Walmart makes the rules, they may also choose not to provide benefits in the event of a permanent disability or wrongful death.
Our attorneys can help you navigate the Walmart workers’ comp system and pursue a lawsuit if the benefits they offer are insufficient. Call us at (888) 395-8563 today to get started.
If your employer chooses to carry workers’ comp insurance as a non-subscriber, they will have their own system for filing a claim. Walmart, for instance, carries an independent insurance policy and its process is extremely strict.
To make the most of your Walmart workers’ comp claim, make sure to do the following:
Even if your benefits are adequate, having an attorney can help you handle the entire claims process with clarity and confidence. Insurers can be exceptionally difficult to deal with, which is a headache you don’t want to worry about while you focus on recovery.

When you get hurt at your place of work, workers’ comp insurance helps cover all your accident-related medical expenses. Even non-subscriber policies should reimburse you for medical bills and temporary missed wages.
Some insurance plans, though, like those carried by Walmart and other non-subscribers, may refuse to pay disability or death benefits.
If this is the case, you or your loved ones may have to file an additional lawsuit to claim what’s rightfully yours.
