The Qualifications For Workers’ Compensation
After a workplace accident, workers’ compensation may be the lifeline needed to cover an injured worker’s expenses and recovery process, but how can anyone be sure if they have a workers’ compensation claim on their hands? When employers try to dismiss the incident and harm you experienced, you need to consult with an experienced team of Texas workers’ compensation attorneys.
At The Law Offices of Miller & Bicklein, P.C., we have more than 90 years of combined experience standing up for injured workers across Texas, and we have helped clients earn the outcomes they deserve after their injuries. The first step in seeking the compensation you need is knowing what accidents qualify for workers’ compensation.
Eligibility For Workers’ Compensation
You may be surprised to learn that most forms of workplace injuries qualify for workers’ compensation. In fact, it is often easier to explain what situations are not eligible for workers’ compensation. Some of these scenarios include:
- Intoxication or reckless behavior
- Driving to or from work (off the clock)
- While attending an off-duty work event (picnics, sports games, etc.)
- During recreational activities during work travel
Insurance companies may try to claim that your injuries do not qualify you for compensation, which is where we come in. Instead of representing yourself, we are prepared to fight against insurance companies to help you earn every cent you deserve after your accident.
