Can I Sue My Employer for a Work Accident in Houston?

After a workplace accident, you might wonder if you can sue your employer for your damages and injuries. This depends on a few factors. First, the injury must be the result of your employer’s negligence.

It’s also important to know whether your employer has workers’ compensation insurance. In Texas, businesses with workers’ comp are protected from liability in a personal injury lawsuit. Therefore, if the company you work for does have workers’ comp, you likely need to go through that insurance to get compensation for your injuries.

However, Texas law also doesn’t require employers to carry workers’ comp insurance. These companies are called non-subscribers. If your employer is a non-subscriber, then you may be able to file a lawsuit to seek compensation after a work injury.

Some of the most common causes of work injuries include:

  • Exposure to harmful environments
  • Exposure to harmful substances
  • Overexertion
  • Falls, slips, and trips
  • Contact with objects
    • Objects striking employees
    • Being stuck between two objects
    • Pressure or friction from objects

If you were injured in a workplace accident, you may have a case against your employer to seek compensation. Talk to a personal injury attorney about the specifics of your case.
