Experienced San Antonio Attorneys Handling All Aspects Of Your Workplace Injury
When you suffer an injury at work, several questions may come to mind:
- What do I do?
- Should I tell my employer?
- Should I just ignore it and hope it goes away tomorrow?
- What if I get fired if I can’t work?
These are many other questions that are very common when it comes to workplace injuries. Fortunately, as an injured worker in Texas, you have options. At Packard Law Firm in San Antonio, we can help you pursue the right ones.
Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Under Texas law, most workers injured on the job are entitled to workers’ comp benefits to pay for medical expenses related to the injury, rehabilitation, lost wages and more. Unless, the employer is a nonsubscriber.
In some cases, employers have not purchased workers’ comp insurance coverage for their employees. In this situation, instead of seeking workers’ comp benefits, an injured employee can seek compensation directly from their employer. This is called a nonsubscriber case.
In certain situations, you may be entitled to sue a third party for your workplace injuries. For example, if a manufacturing defect from a product, equipment or chemical, for example, potentially caused your injury, you may be able to sue the manufacturer. This type of suit can be filed in tandem with your workers’ comp claim.
Let Packard Law Firm Be Your Advocate
When you suffer an injury, sometimes it is not as easy as simply notifying your employer, filing out the necessary paperwork and receiving workers’ comp benefits. There are numerous procedures and steps to follow. In some cases, insurance companies act in bad faith, arbitrarily denying claims or refusing to pay certain benefits. In other situations, your employer will retaliate against you for filing a claim.
At Packard Law Firm, our experienced San Antonio attorneys will fight for your rights and advocate for the benefits you deserve.
