Workers’ compensation is a kind of insurance that offers some benefits to employees if they have an injury at work. These restricted benefits are meant to cover some medical costs as well as a portion of the employee's prior pay. They are considered “restrictive” because your employer’s insurance has limitations on how much you can spend on medical costs related to your injury.
Unfortunately, workers' compensation insurance also has restrictions on your choice of doctors and never completely reimburses you for all your injuries, full medical costs, and lost earnings. Plus, employees must complete a workers’ compensation claim and fill out various forms to get this process started. The process can be quite tedious and intimidating, depending on who is in charge of the benefits at your place of employment.
Employees may have an easier time filing for compensation and receiving full benefits by hiring a work injury lawyer in Houston. Unlike workers' compensation, a personal injury lawsuit allows you to recover ALL of your losses, including past and future "economic losses" (such as medical expenses and lost wages) as well as "non-economic losses" (such as pain and suffering, mental anguish, physical impairment, physical disfigurement, and, in some cases, lost wages). This gives you the best chance of making a full physical and financial recovery.
When you contact Carabin Shaw, you will be able to ask a lawyer about the variations in benefits when it comes to submitting a worker's compensation claim versus a personal injury lawsuit during your initial free case evaluation with us.Our Houston Work Injury Attorneys Provide Aggressive Representation for All Clients
