When your employer is a “non-subscriber” and does not provide workers’ compensation, it doesn’t mean that you are out of luck. Workers in Texas can access the workers’ compensation state-regulated program that can help pay medical bills and some lost wages while the employee is off of work. If you have been injured on the job, it is important that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible. Contact AttorneyJoe Lucé at Joe Knows Law for more information about workers’ compensation coverage.
What to Do After an Injury
If you have been injured during the course of your employment, you will need first to notify your employer that the injury occurred and seek medical attention. You will also want to fill out a “Notice of Injury” packet that will help get you the workers’ compensation while you are out of work. You submit your paperwork to the Texas Department of Insurance, Division of Workers’ Compensation. They do not pay benefits directly to you but help facilitate and regulate workers’ compensation benefits.
