Getting compensation for your workplace injuries can be a complicated issue since state laws do not require employers to carry workers’ comp insurance.  If you were injured at work, call us and we can help you determine whether or not your employer had workers’ compensation insurance, or carries a policy that does not subscribe to Texas State workers’ compensation regulation.

No matter how simple or complicated your case, we know how to navigate the workers' compensation system to help you get what you are entitled to.  State workers’ compensation laws provide that an injured employee can recover medical expenses and up to 70% of your pre-injury earnings if you have lost wages after the first seven days of being unable to work because of the injury.  You are also entitled to evaluation to see if you are due compensation for permanent impairments.

Examples of disputes we have helped resolve for our clients in El Paso and across Texas are:

  • Compensability (denial of the whole claim)
  • Extent of injury (limiting the injury)
  • Disability (denial of wage replacement benefits)
  • Impairment ratings 
  • Supplemental income benefits 
  • Death claims (benefits for beneficiaries)
  • Lifetime Income Benefits cases (for severe injuries as defined by statute)
  • Change of treating doctor
  • Travel reimbursement and more...

What to Expect When Pursuing Compensation for a Workplace Illness or Injury

The first step is getting care from a doctor.  The doctor will need to know that you were injured at work so he or she can keep careful records of your injury and treatment. Not every doctor accepts workers’ compensation patients or is in every network, so you will need to find the right medical provider for your case. Our workers' compensation attorneys in El Paso can help with that.  We can also help you through the rest of the process, including, but not limited to: 

  • Filing the needed forms with the Texas Department of Insurance, Divisions of Workers' Compensation
  • Collecting information and evidence
  • Working with the insurance company to get your benefits paid
  • Handling any denial, limitation, or dispute of your claim from the insurance company
  • Getting you a rating that compensates you for any permanent impairment
