Workers’ Comp Benefits for You

Workers’ compensation is great for employees and employers alike. On the one hand, workers’ compensation benefits can financially support the injured worker until they can safely return to work. On the other, allowing a worker to rest comfortably also allows them to return to work sooner than later, so both parties win. This is why it is so important for you to get all the benefits available to you, and why your employer should be supportive of your claim, rather than fight it.

Workers’ compensation benefits can include:

  • 100% coverage of all medical expenses
  • Temporary disability pay
  • Permanent disability pay
  • Vocational rehabilitation
  • Death benefits
  • And more

It is important to note that each state has set its own rules for workers’ compensation minimums and regulations. The benefits available to a worker in Texas might not be the same as those available to a worker in Louisiana, even if both workers have similar jobs and were injured under similar circumstances. To better understand what is available to you, we advise that you contact our firm directly.

Are All Injured Workers Able to Get Workers’ Comp?

Although workers’ compensation covers many workers, it does not cover all workers. There are exceptions to who must be provided workers’ compensation under the law. In fact, Texas is the only state in which employers do not have to purchase workers’ compensation insurance to cover their workers. If you were hurt in Texas while working, then there’s a real chance that you don’t even have the option to file a workers’ compensation claim.

In Louisiana and the other states, the following people might not get workers’ comp coverage:

  • Independent contractors
  • Workers at companies with a small number of employees
  • Workers who intentionally tried to get hurt at work
  • Workers with certain preexisting conditions

Should You Have Workers’ Compensation in Texas?

Texas doesn’t require employers to cover their workers with workers’ compensation benefits. However, many employers in Texas opt to buy workers’ comp insurance because it protects them and their company from liability if a workplace accident happens. Otherwise, an employer can be sued directly by an injured worker if the employer’s negligence contributed to the accident.
