Dallas Non-Subscriber Claim Lawyer
Our law firm can handle your Texas work injury claim
Work injury victims in Texas often face an uphill battle getting the money they rightfully deserve for their injury-related expenses. This is especially true for injured workers who need to pursue a non-subscriber claim.
Many people don’t know how this system works. You probably think your employer will automatically pay for all your injury-related expenses if you get hurt at work. But you could be in for a big surprise after you sustain an injury on the job.
Our Dallas law firm gets calls all the time from frustrated workers who can’t get the money they deserve for their work-related injuries. That’s why we want to help. Our Dallas non-subscriber injury attorneys at The Marye Law Firm have years of experience handling such complex legal cases. As a result, we thoroughly understand how the system works and can help you every step of the way.
What is a non-subscriber claim?
Many employers in Texas have workers’ compensation insurance. However, Texas also gives employers the right to not participate in this state-regulated insurance system. Companies that choose to not participate in Texas’ workers’ compensation system are known as non-subscribers.
If you work for a company that does not participate in Texas’ workers’ compensation system, you have the right to seek compensation from your company in the form of a non-subscriber claim. In certain cases, you can also file a non-subscriber lawsuit against your company seeking damages, the legal term for financial compensation.
How do I know if I have a case?
Many people don’t even realize their employer does not participate in Texas’ workers’ compensation system until they get hurt at work. That’s often the first time they’re aware that their employer is a non-subscriber in terms of workers’ compensation.
Even so, it’s not always clear that you have a legal case if you get hurt at work. Often, employers in such situations will try to blame you for causing your injury. They do this in order to avoid responsibility and to avoid having to pay for your injury-related expenses.
But don’t just take their word for it. Talk to an attorney who can review what happened and advise you on whether or not you might be able to pursue compensation from them in the form of a non-subscriber claim or lawsuit.
What happens after a work injury?
Knowing what to do if you’re hurt at work in Texas can be confusing. However, it’s important that you take certain steps right away to protect your rights and your health. Such steps include:
- Seek immediate medical attention.
- Tell your supervisor you got hurt on the job.
- Talk to an attorney as soon as possible.
Depending on the circumstances of your work-related injury, there might be other steps you should take as well. But the sooner you talk to an attorney, the better.
How can a lawyer help?
When you have an experienced attorney on your side handling your non-subscriber claim, you can dictate what happens next. Instead of your employer or attorneys representing your company, you and your lawyer can make sure your workplace injury receives the attention it deserves.
Often, this involves your lawyer conducting an in-depth investigation into exactly why your work injury took place. Did you get hurt due to unsafe working conditions? Did your employer fail to provide adequate training or safety precautions, including protective safety equipment?
All of these issues – and many more – can have an impact on the outcome of your legal case. That’s why it’s critical that you have an experienced attorney on your side who knows how to handle complicated work injury claims.
