Getting hurt on the job is a reality of working, and professions like construction, transportation, and oil & gas production face an even higher chance of workplace injury.
While some businesses maintain worker’s compensation insurance, Texas does not require employers to do so. This means that a lot of companies elect not to hold it.
For an injured employee, this leaves them a single recourse: filing a 3rd part claim.
