What if I have a Workplace Accident and I Did not Receive any Compensation Benefits From my Employer?

Several scenarios could lead to the lack of compensation. Maybe your employer didn’t file the First Report of Injury or provide other necessary documentation. If you were participating in criminal behavior or intoxicated when the injury took place, you may not get benefits. Some employers require injured employees to visit with a doctor of their choice as well as the employee’s own doctor. If you neglected to do this or if your actions aren’t consistent with your claims of injury, then you may not be compensated.

If you have suffered a workplace accident through no fault of your own, you have the right to receive compensation benefits. If you have not, then it would be in your best interests to contact a lawyer. Most states have statutes of limitations regarding workers’ compensation claims. In Texas, this period is no longer than one year after the date of the injury.
