On-the-job injuries are injuries that occur while a worker is performing his or her job activities, regardless of the industry or the type of job. Workers in Houston and throughout the State of Texas are often times exposed to dangerous conditions in the workplace. These dangerous conditions can subject workers to sustain on the job injuries. Sometimes dangerous conditions may be the fault of a third party. The Texas workers’ compensation laws do not prevent an injured employee from suing third parties that are responsible for their injuries. This also includes manufacturers of products that are defective. The rights of employees who are injured on the job usually depend on whether or not the employer carries workers compensation insurance. You can find out if your employer subscribes to workers compensation insurance by calling the Texas Department of Insurance Division of Workers’ Compensation. An employer that is a subscriber of workers compensation insurance is immune from any liability to employees for on the job injuries except in cases that involve fatal injuries that are caused by malice or gross negligence.
