Do I Qualify for Workers’ Compensation Benefits?

In Texas, not all private employers are required to carry workers’ compensation coverage for their employees. It is important to check with your company to determine whether you are eligible for benefits. If your employer does not carry workers’ compensation, you might be entitled to take legal action if you are injured on the job.

Workers’ compensation can protect an employer from liability, but it also provides coverage for an employee who is injured while at work, regardless of who was at fault for the accident. To fully understand your rights and workers’ compensation benefits, you need to speak with an attorney. 

What If My Claim Is Denied?

If your workers’ compensation claim is denied, you may be able to file an appeal. The appeals process is multi-faceted and should be handled by an attorney. Initially, you can request a review of your benefits. The benefit review conference is an informal meeting to help facilitate a more favorable decision. 

If the desired outcome cannot be achieved, you can then choose to move forward with arbitration or a contested case hearing. Each of these has its own legal challenges. Without the help of a lawyer, you may never see the benefits you deserve after a workplace accident or injury. 

Should I Hire a Workers’ Compensation Attorney?

It is always in your best interest to consult with a workers’ compensation attorney as early in the process as possible. An attorney can help you understand what to expect and can file a benefit review or appeal on your behalf.

However, It is important to act quickly as you may only have a limited amount of time to file an appeal. Working with an attorney from day one can help ensure that you receive the outcome that you deserve.
