Non-Subscriber Employee Injury
In Texas, workers whose employer doesn't provide workers' compensation can sue their employer in State Courts. The employer, by not carrying workers' compensation, has severely limited defenses. But, this doesn't mean that the employee always wins. The cases are still hard-fought and experienced lawyers are essential to getting the fair recovery that the worker deserves.
Over the past two decades, employers have developed their own employee-injury system of insurance under ERISA. This system offers workers' comp-like benefits for injured employees, with disputes about whether benefits are due under the plan, adjudicated under ERISA in federal courts, or in arbitration.
ERISA and arbitration – the employers bet – are significant enough barriers to put off most employees and their lawyers. Not us.
We have years of experience bringing personal injury cases on behalf of injured workers in both State Courts and in Arbitration panels. We also have years of experience in high-stakes commercial arbitrations and are well-versed in the intricacies of arbitrations. We have repeatedly beat back employers' attempts to limit recovery with ERISA and other federal laws, and to deny workers the past wages, future wages, and personal injury damages they are due.
We investigate the facts of the case, develop a comprehensive plan, work with experts in the pertinent fields, and get positive results for our clients.
If you or a loved one is injured at work, and you are unsure of whether there is workers' compensation coverage, contact us. If there is no workers' compensation and you want attorneys with experience in the unique forum of non-subscriber litigation, we will be your attorneys.
