Workers’ Compensation Lawyers
Barnes Law Firm in Houston, Texas handles Non-Subscriber Claims as a result of workplace accidents and work-related injuries, as well as workers’ compensation and third party claims.
In Texas, employers are not required to provide or “subscribe” to workers’ compensation insurance. These employers who do not provide workers’ compensation insurance, known as “non-subscribers”, are responsible for the injuries they cause to their employees. A Non-Subscriber claim is where the employer does not carry Workers’ Compensation insurance coverage and an employee is injured or killed due to the employer’s negligence or the negligence of a fellow employee. The injured employee can recover losses and damages directly from the employer. Employers who do not carry workers’ compensation are still liable to pay the injury employees’ bills, lost wages, damages and other losses as a result of the work injury.
If you have been injured at work or sustained an injury in the workplace, contact Barnes Law Firm If your employer is a non-subscriber, you may have claims against your employer and against others for your losses. A work accident or injury with a non-subscriber employer can involve various areas of the law, which can often involve more than one party, and become very complex.
