When a Party-at-Fault is not Needed
With other general negligence claims, proving fault is often required to fulfill the victim’s settlement compensation, however, for those who’ve suffered an injury while on the job, the affected individual is able to receive their worker’s compensation payments and their medical bills paid regardless of who was at fault for the injury or how it was caused.
If you or a loved one have been injured on a workplace setting in the state of Texas, you or your family member could be eligible to be covered by worker’s compensation. Worker’s Comp was developed to reimburse and take care of injured employees, even if they were at fault for causing the harm. In other words, the employee is to receive compensation for their disability and medical care in the case that they are injured on the job, regardless of their role in the accident, even if the injury occurred entirely due to the employee’s own fault.
In Texas, worker’s compensations laws can be found under the Texas Worker’s Compensation Act, Title 5, Texas Labor Code, Chapters 401-506.
