If you’ve been injured on the job in Houston, you probably have questions about filing a work injury lawsuit. On-the-job injuries can be incredibly costly. In addition to putting you out of work, they can also interfere with all other aspects of your life.
So when can you bring a work injury lawsuit? The answer to this question depends on two main factors:
- The cause of your injury. This will determine who bears responsibility and whether you can sue.
- Whether or not your employer has workers’ compensation coverage. Texas does not require most employers to carry workers’ compensation coverage. However, employers that voluntarily provide coverage are protected against employee lawsuits for work injuries in most cases.
