When you are injured on the job in Texas, you may be able to get workers’ compensation. Workers’ compensation is a state regulated insurance program that provides covered employees with income and medical benefits if they sustain a work related injury or illness. This means that it pays your medical bills and replaces a portion of our lost wages if you are injured at work or have a work related illness. In most cases, your employer is required to notify you whether or not they provide coverage.
