In many cases, those who are injured while working will qualify for workers’ compensation. However, employers in Texas are not required to maintain workers’ compensation insurance, and this may leave injured workers unsure about how to address the costs related to work injuries. Injured employees may be able to pursue civil lawsuits against employers who do not subscribe to workers’ comp, and these lawsuits may be based on claims that injuries were caused by an employer’s negligence. For instance, an employer may not have required employees to follow the proper safety regulations, or they may not have provided workers with the necessary safety equipment or training on how to minimize workplace hazards and avoid work-related injuries.
