Nonsubscriber – Work Related Injury
Employers owe many duties to employees, but one of the most important duties an employer owes is a duty to provide a safe workplace. If this is not the case and you have been injured as a result of an unsafe workplace you may be unaware that you have waived your right to a jury trial and agreed to submit your claim to arbitration if your employer has opted out of Texas workers’ compensation.
In this instance, it is important to understand the rules of arbitration, including the selection of an arbitrator who will ultimately decide your case. A work related injury can be catastrophic in nature and in some instances can result in death. A work related injury can also be devastating on the injured individual and his or her family while the injured individual is actively attempting to return to his or her pre-injury physical capabilities and return to active employment. If you have sustained a work related injury as a result of an unsafe workplace, you will need aggressive and experienced representation to assist you in your claim to maximize your recovery.
