Texas is a great place to live, unless your outside in July or August. If you work construction, Texas provides plenty of work. But, what happens if you are injured while working at a job site?
The first thing to know is that unlike most states, Texas does not require employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance. This can complicate how your injury claim is handled.
When you sit down with your attorney, you will need to discuss:
- Who is your employer?
- How were you injured?
- What other companies were working at that location?
- Was another company responsible for your accident?
- What type of insurance is available for you?
Construction site injuries require your attorney to look at not only accident issues, but also workers’ compensation. Make sure your attorney is experienced at not only injury law, but subscriber and non-subscriber workers compensation claims.
