I was injured at work – now what?

Regardless of how your injury occurred, if it happened while on the job, you may be eligible for compensation. You could also be eligible if you develop a work-related illness.

Any work injuries must be reported to your employer within 30 days of when they occurred. If you do not do so, you could lose any rights to your compensation or benefits. After reporting your injury, you are then required to file a claim and submit it to the Texas Department of Insurance within one year of your injury date, which will further protect your rights.

Financial compensation may be available for the following:

  • Medical bills
  • Future medical care
  • Lost wages
  • Inability to work
  • Pain and suffering
  • Impairment
  • Disfigurement

It is important that you recall as much information about the injury as possible. Be sure to include where and how the accident occurred, any negligence on your employer's or coworker's part, as well as any witnesses that were present.

Workplace Injury Frequently Asked Questions

How do I file a claim?
The actual process can seem very simple, but is important that you ensure all information is filled out correctly. You can fill out the DWC Form-041 or complete an online form. From there, you should contact a Pasadena personal injury attorney for help on filing a compensation claim.

My employer treats me differently since my injury, what can I do?
You should contact the Texas Department of Insurance Customer Assistance at 1-800-252-7031 if you are being treated unfairly. It is illegal for an employer to discriminate against anyone for filing a workplace injury claim. You can also turn to our firm for legal assistance.

What if my injury poses a life-threatening risk to me?
You should seek immediate medical attention if you were injured. You can seek the help of another doctor if your treating doctor is unavailable to treat you.

Is time taken off for doctor or physical therapy appointments considered lost time?
No, lost time is that period of time during which the injured employee is physically unable to work due to a compensable injury.

Is a worker required to use all of their sick an annual leave before they are entitled to receive workers' compensation benefits?
No, the employer can't require an employee to exhaust all accrued leave even if the employee elects to take leave pursuant to the Family Medical Leave Act.
