Houston Work Injuries Attorney
When Injury Occurs on the Job
The Texas Workers Compensation Law may come into play when an employee is hurt or killed in a traffic accident while traveling for work. Generally, an employee who is covered by workers’ compensation insurance does not have a right to sue his employer for work injuries, and the employee’s beneficiaries or surviving relatives cannot sue the employer for wrongful death. However, if the employee’s death was due to the negligent actions of a third party, Texas laws allow the employee’s surviving dependents to pursue an action against the third party, regardless of whether the deceased was covered by workers compensation insurance through his or her employer.
