“¡Es cierto lo que dice su cartelera que definitivamente es El Abogado que Trabaja!”
People confuse work injury claims with workers’ compensation claims all the time, but the two are extremely different and are determined based on fault. A worker who is injured on the job can file for workers’ compensation benefits (assuming their employer is a Texas subscriber) without needing to prove that their employer or coworkers are at fault for their damages. As an employee you have certain rights, including receiving benefits after an accident for damages like lost earnings, medical expenses, and permanent impairment.
In some cases, workers can file third-party personal injury claims when they’re injured on the job by an individual or company who isn’t their employer. In these claims, victims must establish that the third party was negligent and that this negligence contributed to their damages, just like any other personal injury claim. In addition to receiving compensation for medical bills and lost wages, individuals can also be compensated for pain and suffering, which individuals who file workers’ comp claims aren’t necessarily entitled to.
