Texas is the only state in the union where employers are not legally required to provide workers’ compensation for their employees. Instead, Texas companies are allowed to opt out of workers’ compensation in favor of providing employees coverage under a personal injury plan. While several notable employers hold this status as a workers’ compensation “non-subscriber,” the most widely recognized is Walmart.
Walmart’s non-subscriber status makes it very difficult to file an injury claim with the company. Fortunately, our skilled Corpus Christi non-subscriber worker’ comp. attorneys are familiar with all the strict rules and specific guidelines Walmart sets for filing injury claims. If you or someone you know is a Walmart employee that has recently experienced an on-the-job accident, you are entitled to seek compensation, regardless of the company’s policies. Just contact Daspit Law Firm today to begin fighting for your rights as an employee.

Walmart is the largest retailer in the U.S., and until recently, it was the largest retailer in the world. According to its own estimates, the company employs 2.2 million people at its 11,718 locations. This means that there are thousands of Walmart workers and shoppers moving in and out of the retail giant’s stores every day. All this foot traffic can sometimes lead to unsafe working conditions, and occasionally, accidents resulting in injury.
Unfortunately, Walmart has a long history of prioritizing its bottom line over the well-being of employees. In Texas, their status as workers’ comp. non-subscriber also gives them more discretion over injury claims than anywhere else in the country. This is why it is essential to follow the company’s guidelines to the letter when submitting an injury claim, and why it is a good idea to hire a seasoned workers’ comp. attorney to assist you in seeking benefits.
