When you’ve been injured on a job and develop an injury in Texas, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation. With the help of a Texas attorney from Tijerina Legal Group P.C., you can prepare a claim to make sure that you get the compensation that you’re owed and deserve. Under Texas law, workers’ compensation claim does not require an employer to have the coverage. This means that an individual can still apply for benefits despite whether their employer currently has coverage or not. This no-fault system offers compensation for any type of work injury to help those injured to pay back their expenses.
What Are Some Types of Workplace Accidents?
Some of the most common ways that people are injured on a job include construction accidents, whether scaffold, ladder or roof falls. Electrical injuries can also lead to serious injuries. Factory injuries are also prevalent including head, brain, shoulder, neck, wrist, arm, or leg injuries. Occupational illness from asbestos, lead, mercury, lead, or formaldehyde can lead to lung damage, asthma, asbestosis, mesothelioma, and other serious illnesses.
