Qualifying for Texas Workers' Compensation after Construction Accidents
There are many qualifications you must meet in order to qualify for Workers' Comp, which is why it is highly recommended to have a Houston injury lawyer to help you through the complex system.
First, your employer must carry the insurance option, and you must be able to be proven as an employee of that company, by definition of the law, when the accident occurred. Second, you must report your injury to your employer within 30 days of the injury, and third, you must file a DWC Form-041, an Employee's Claim for Compensation for a Work-related Injury or Occupational Disease.
The best way to determine if you qualify for Workers' Comp is to contact a qualified lawyer. An attorney has the ability to examine all aspects of your case, employment and injury in the effort to pursue benefits.
