It is legal in Texas for employers to waive workers' compensation insurance. These employers are referred to as nonsubscribers. By not carrying workers' compensation insurance, nonsubscribers assume responsibility for the costs associated with the medical care and other losses of employees hurt in on-the-job accidents. The remedies under workers' compensation vs. remedies in non-subscriber cases are completely different.

If you work for a nonsubscriber and you have been injured on the job, it is important that you seek the advice of an experienced lawyer who knows the law and can properly handle your case. At The Law Firm of Ted B. Lyon & Associates, we dedicate our practice to helping injury victims in the Mesquite area and across Texas obtain fair compensation for their injuries. We understand the relief available to injured workers in nonsubscriber cases, and our lawyers are committed to obtaining the medical care and financial support you need to make a full recovery.

In a traditional workers' compensation case, workers pursue claims against the employer's insurance company. In a nonsubscriber case, workers file suit directly against their employers. Employees only need to prove that their employers were 1 percent negligent for the accident that caused their injuries for the employer to be held completely liable for the compensation required to cover their medical care, loss of income and other losses. In both workers' compensation and nonsubscriber cases, workers have the right to seek additional compensation under a separate personal injury claim if the negligence of someone other than their employers caused the injuries.

We have experience representing clients in all types of workplace injury claims. Contact our office in Mesquite to discuss your questions regarding the remedies under workers' compensation vs. remedies in non-subscriber cases with one of our attorneys.
