FACT: Millions of Texas Workers Are Left Vulnerable by Employers Lacking Workers’ Comp Coverage

In 2021, 30% of known Texas Employers offered NO Texas Workman’s Compensation Insurance to protect their employees.

This is a sobering reality for a State with over 30 MILLION potential employees who may be left vulnerable and unprotected by their employers! You and your loved ones very likely go to work daily with the potential for injury and disability, yet the company you work for offers no clear pathway to medical treatment or recovery.

Texas Nonsubscriber Cases for Injured Employees & Workers

When an employer chooses not to participate in the state’s workers’ compensation system, injured employees are left vulnerable. This is what’s known as a “non-subscriber” case, and it requires legal experience to navigate successfully.

Establishing Fault and Demonstrating Employer Negligence

A crucial element in nonsubscriber cases is the ability to effectively demonstrate employer negligence. The Dodson Law Firm, PLLC excels in conducting detailed evaluations to ensure employers are held accountable for their failure to provide a safe working environment.

To prove employer negligence in a nonsubscriber injury case, the key elements that must be established are:

  1. The employer owed the employee a duty of care to maintain a reasonably safe work environment.
  2. The employer breached that duty through actions or inactions.
  3. The employee suffered an injury.
  4. The employer’s breach of duty was the direct cause of the employee’s injury.

To build a strong negligence case, The Dodson Law Firm, PLLC:

  • Investigates the accident thoroughly, gathering evidence and witness statements
  • Consults with safety experts and accident reconstructionist
  • Analyzes the employer’s safety policies, training programs, and compliance with regulations
  • Identifies all potentially liable parties, including supervisors and managers
  • Crafts compelling legal arguments highlighting the employer’s failures
  • Aggressively pursues accountability through negotiations or trial

Given the time-sensitive nature of these cases, we prioritize timely action. Missing critical deadlines can detrimentally affect a case’s outcome. This understanding underscores the team’s commitment to meticulous adherence to legal timelines, safeguarding their clients’ rights to pursue rightful compensation.
