San Antonio Work Injury Accident

If you’ve been injured at work, you may have important benefits available to you if your employer participates in the Texas Workers’ Compensation program. That’s why it’s important to know whether you’re covered at work, and if you are, to know how to file a workers’ compensation claim. For those needing help, San Antonio workers’ compensation lawyers from Carabin Shaw are available to assist you with this process.

When you are injured at work, the first thing to do is report your injury to your employer. This should be done within 30 days of the injury, or you could jeopardize your benefits. You must also complete an Employee's Claim for Compensation for a Work-Related Injury or Occupational Disease form and submit it within one year of the date your injury occurred to the Texas Department of Insurance.

These deadlines are just one reason injured many workers miss out on benefits and why it’s so important to enlist the help of one of our workers’ compensation lawyers in San Antonio. Carabin Shaw’s attorneys have decades of experience offering assistance to those who have been injured and work and will ensure all deadlines are met and the required paperwork is completed.

An attorney can also ensure you receive all of the benefits available through workers’ compensation so you can receive the fullest compensative available to you.

To illustrate this importance, many workers don’t realize that Workers’ Compensation benefits are divided into four categories: income, medical, death, and burial. Income benefits will vary based on the nature of your injury and your wage before becoming injured. Medical benefits will cover medical expenses. Death and burial benefits will apply in the tragic occurrence of the loss of life as a result of a workplace accident.

Because of the complex nature of Workers’ Compensation benefits and how they vary based on each circumstance, it’s critical to have someone working on your behalf who will help you navigate the process of filing a work injury claim and making sure each of these categories are explored to the fullest available compensation.
