“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.
