In Texas, injured workers are generally allowed to seek workers’ compensation benefits for injuries they sustain while working. Medical bills, surgical procedures, and lost wages are just a few types of benefits available.
However, in certain situations, injuries workers are entitled to pursue additional compensation from a third-party.
Filing A Third-Party Lawsuit
If a workplace injury was caused by the negligence of another entity, for instance, injured workers may be able to pursue a cause of action against that entity.
A common example involves a manufacturer of a product, equipment or chemical. If any of these were the cause of your injury and were found to be hazardous due to their design defect or failure to warn, you may be able to pursue further damages not provided for under workers’ compensation.
