Workers’ compensation is an insurance program designed to help employees pay for their medical bills and replace part of their lost wages after being injured on the job. Each state regulates its own programs. By Texas laws, you may qualify for benefits if:
- you are injured at work or have suffered a work-related illness, and
- your employer has workers’ compensation insurance under the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act.
As a worker whose employer does have insurance under the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act, you may qualify for a portion of lost wages if:
- your work-related injury or illness causes you to lose some or all of your wages for more than seven work days.
Employees still have rights even if their employers don’t subscribe to workers’ compensation insurance.
