Were you recently injured at work? If so, you may be eligible to file a workers’ compensation claim or even sue your employer directly. Unlike other states, Texas doesn’t require most employers to purchase workers’ compensation insurance. But if they don’t have it, it leaves them open to personal injury lawsuits when workers are injured on the job through no fault of their own.

Having an experienced Dallas work injury lawyer on your side means you’ll have access to decades of both workers’ compensation application and appeals experience and personal injury lawsuit experience. This is important, as it not only increases your chances of getting approved the first time, but it also means less waiting time to get the money you need for your medical bills and lost wages.

Regardless of whether or not your employer has workers’ compensation insurance, it’s essential to have an experienced law firm on your side after getting hurt at work. Contact Fears Dudley Injury Law today for a free consultation. It’s our goal to help injured workers get the money they need while they recover from their on-the-job injuries.

Don’t Let Your Employer Talk You Out of Filing a Legal Claim

Employers often emphasize workplace safety and the number of consecutive days without an injury or incident. To maintain the appearance of a safe workplace, they may discourage or even intimidate employees into keeping quiet about their injuries. If you get hurt on the job, it’s important to protect your rights to compensation, regardless of what your employer says.

If your employer has workers’ compensation insurance, you may be entitled to benefits through their insurance policy. And if your employer doesn’t have workers’ compensation insurance and you were injured at work because of inadequate training, lack of safety equipment or safeguards, or another employee’s negligence, you may be eligible to sue your employer or coworker directly.

Although it may be in your employer’s best interests for you to not file a claim, it’s not in yours. If you don’t file a claim, whether it’s a workers’ compensation claim or a personal injury lawsuit, you’ll be forced to pay for your medical bills and lost wages out of pocket. That can be devastating for many workers even if they miss just a couple of weeks or work, let alone months or years.
