Getting injured on the job is as devastating as it is complex. If you were injured in a way that impedes you from continuing to work, you will face medical bills and lost wages. Your employer, whether or not it subscribes to workers’ compensation insurance, could owe you money for your injuries. This process by which these finances are procured can be complicated and confusing. The help of an experienced attorney is essential.
At The Levine Law Firm, our Austin workers’ compensation attorney has more than 20 years of experience helping individuals who have been injured at work. We are highly detailed and diligent in our pursuit of the best possible outcome for our clients. By carefully investigating the circumstances of your work injury and determining liability, we are able to build strong cases for our clients that we are prepared to negotiate to settlement or litigate aggressively in court. We work with the following workers:
- Administrative employees
- Retail employees
- Loading dock workers
- Small-business employees
Nonsubscriber Workers’ Compensation
In Texas, employers can opt out of workers’ compensation insurance. When they do this, they are considered a nonsubscriber, and they waive their ability to use contributory negligence as a defense. Contributory negligence accounts for the injury victims’ share in the responsibility for an accident. Nonsubscriber companies cannot use this as a legitimate defense in your workers’ comp case. Put simply, we only need to prove that your employer was negligent, regardless of your contribution to the situation, and we can help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
