In Texas and other states, most employers are required to carry workers' compensation insurance. This is called a "no fault" system. State laws may also protect employers from lawsuits even if it was their fault you had an on-the-job accident. Many work injury victims suffer from the fact that their workers' compensation claims:
- Are often disputed, denied and delayed by employers and insurers
- May result in payment of medical costs and a portion of lost wages, but do not provide any compensation for pain and suffering.
There are many cases of workplace injury where you may be able to file a lawsuit against someone other than the employer , such as:
- The manufacturer of malfunctioning or defective equipment
- A contractor or other responsible party whose negligence causes injury in a construction site accident, work injury, or aciident on the job.
- Architects, consulting engineers or safety consultants
