    Jason’s Answer

    Suing your employer depends on if your employer carries workers compensation of is a "non-subscriber" and does not carry workers compensation.

    "Non-subscriber" employers can be sued for workplace injuries.

    EITHER WAY, DO NOT DO THIS WITHOUT A LAWYER.

    The information stated below is based on the assumption there is no workers compensation insurance.

    You should not give a statement, give access to your medical information or sign any insurance company forms without speaking to a lawyer.

    The insurance company is not your friend and is not concerned with your injuries and pain.

    Their goal is to make $ by paying as little as possible on the claim. They will frustrate you by delaying payment, giving you a low offer, or denying the claim hoping you will get mad and go away.

    I should know because I worked as a lawyer for insurance companies for 10 years.

    You may make a claim to recover: (1) medical bills; (2) lost wages; (3) compensation for pain, impairment, and disfigurement if your employer does not carry workers compensation insurance.

    I would be more than happy to talk with you about the accident.

    Jason’s Answer

    Claims against schools are under the Texas Tort Claims Act.

    The mere fact that an accident occured on the school does not make them responsible for the injuries or medical bills.

    It is confusing law and requires the assistance of an experienced Texas personal injury lawyer.

    There are deadlines to send notice of claim and if deadline is missed, you can never file a lawsuit.

    Call a personal injury attorney ASAP.

    Jason’s Answer

    Assuming your employer has workers compensation benefits,

    you need to fill out a DWC Form 047 and request payment for travel time.

    http://www.tdi.state.tx.us/forms/form20employee.html.

    You also need to contact the Texas Division of Workers Compensation to confirm a claim has been set up for you so your wage benefits are given to you.

    If your employer does not carry workers compensation and is a non-subscriber, you may have a right to file a personal injury lawsuit and seek compensation for lost wages, medical bills, and pain/impairment.

  • Is it legal for an employer to fire an employee because they opened a Workers Comp Claim?

    My husband was injured on the job several months ago. After seeking medical treatment, he was told he would need surgery. His employer referred him to his surgeon and advised my husband that they would take care of all of his medical bills. Th...

    Jason’s Answer

    It is not legal.

    There may be two claims here, a retaliatory discharge claim against the employer and possibly a personal injury lawsuit against the employer, if there is no workers compensation. This might be the case, if they told him they would "take care of his bills."

    DO NOT DO THIS WITHOUT A LAWYER

    You should not give a statement, give access to your medical information or sign any insurance company forms without speaking to a lawyer.

    The employer and any insurance company is not your friend and is not concerned with your husband's injuries and pain.

    Their goal is to make $ by paying as little as possible on the claim. They will frustrate you by delaying payment, giving you a low offer, or denying the claim hoping you will get mad and go away.

    I should know because I worked as a lawyer for employers and insurance companies for 10 years.

    Your husband may make a claim to recover: (1) medical bills; (2) lost wages; (3) and compensation for pain, impairment, and disfigurement, if there is no workers compensation.

    Jason’s Answer

    You can make it a claim against the city under the Texas Tort Claims Act.

    You must send written notice of claim in a specified time period or your claim cannot be filed as a lawsuit.

    DO NOT DO THIS WITHOUT A LAWYER. THE LAW IS TRICKY IN THESE CLAIMS.

    You should not give a statement, give access to your medical information or sign any insurance company forms without speaking to a lawyer.

    When your employer is a "non-subscriber" you may file a personal injury lawsuit or claim for compensation. You do not have to go through the Workers Compensation Commission.

    Regardless of the status of your license or insurance, if injured, you can make a claim for personal injuries against the driver of the car that caused the accident.

    You can make it a claim against this driver 's insurance.

    Jason’s Answer

    Do not handle this alone.

    You need to contact a workers compensation attorney in San Antonio to assist you.

    The insurance company is not your friend and is not concerned with your injuries and pain.

    Their goal is to make $ by paying as little as possible on the claim. They will frustrate you by delaying payment, giving you a low offer, or denying the claim hoping you will get mad and go away.

    This appears to be the case here. The insurance company is dragging their feet on approving medical treatment.

    I should know because I worked as a lawyer for insurance companies for 10 years.

    Send me an e-mail to my website and I will recommend a workers compensation lawyer in San Antonio.

    They will have their lawyers to fight the claim. You need to get a lawyer.
