Ensure Your Employer Provides the Coverage You Need

Injuries happen. When they happen at work, employers are expected to give their employees the resources they need to get better as quickly and fully as possible. If you were injured because of the work you were doing for an employer, it is their responsibility to see that you are given the coverage you need to recover. Unfortunately, this does not always happen. You may need the help of a work injury lawyer who can build a case fighting for your needed compensation. Call MAS Law today and schedule a free consultation to get started.

Your Rights as an Employee

In the State of Texas, business owners must choose one of two options: either subscribe to workers’ compensation insurance or decline to do so, handling work injuries as they occur. If there is an accident that results in an injury, being without insurance can become extremely expensive. While the safer option is to have insurance coverage in place, many employers still refuse to do so. Instead, they hope to avoid having to cover damages through legal strategy.

Employers can avoid paying a settlement for your injuries by demonstrating they were caused by:

  • Horseplay
  • Willful criminal acts
  • Intoxication from drugs or alcohol
  • Off-duty recreation
  • An act of God

When preparing your case for compensation, it is important to make sure you get the help of experienced attorneys in planning for what to expect. MAS Law has decades of experience building legal strategies that help our clients obtain the best outcome for their situation.

Should I Hire an Attorney for My Workers Compensation Claim?

Contact us today to find out how we can help you especially if:

  • You have a preexisting condition

What to Do After an Accident

The most important thing for you to do is recover, and you should focus on that as much as possible. Let MAS Law help you obtain what you need to cover medical expenses, but do not put off going to the doctor because you are worried you will not be able to pay for it.

Following your injury, you should:

  • Seek immediate medical attention from a doctor you trust
  • Get the doctor to document all your injuries, even if they don’t seem too serious
  • Take photographs of the conditions of the accident
  • Obtain witness statements from anyone present during your injury
  • Keep copies of correspondence between you and your employer

It can be challenging to fight for the coverage you need, even if the injury was clearly not your fault. Texas’ comparative negligence laws make it possible for employers to shift the blame and pay less in damages, so you need to build a strong case that protects your interests. Call the award-winning work injury lawyer at MAS Law for more information.
