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
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.

No, lost time is that period of time during which the injured employee
is physically unable to work due to a compensable injury.
