Work Injury In Texas

Standard

The majority of employers in Texas subscriber to the Texas Workers’ Compensation system.  Injuries under this system are governed by the Texas Labor Code and the DWC Rules.

“Injury” means damage or harm to the physical structure of the body and a disease or infection naturally resulting from the damage or harm. The term includes an occupational disease.

To have a claim covered under the Texas Workers’ Compensation system, the worker must establish that the injury occurred in the Course and Scope of his/her employment.

If a worker has damage or harm to their body while in the course and scope of their employment, they may pursue a claim for workers’ compensation benefits which include indemnity (monetary) and medical benefits.
