Construction Accident Workers’ Compensation | Workers’ Comp Eligibility
Workers’ Compensation is Texas law. Employers are required to have workers’ compensation for the injuries a worker has at a job site or job location, but that doesn’t mean that there are no other remedies that are available to the worker for the injuries they sustained. It’s important that they meet with a lawyer to try and determine not only whether there’s Workers’ Compensation, but other remedies that are afforded under Texas law.
