San Antonio On-The-Job Injuries Attorney

The ability to earn a wage is a necessity. For Texans, quality of life, safety and self-satisfaction often hinge on gainful employment. But if you are hurt or suffer illness because of employment — your health and ability to earn a wage are compromised.

In the workplace, the United States Department of Labor reports over 3 million people suffered nonfatal illness or injury in 2010, and over 4,000 died. For most workers injured on the job, the Texas Workers' Compensation Act provides compensation for injury and lost wages — but denial and delay in payment of claims can quickly destroy financial and physical well-being. Where can you get help when injured on the job?

Good San Antonio workers' compensation lawyers provide background information about workers' comp and dedicated assistance navigating the often complicated claims process. Consider these points about your right to compensation after workplace injury or illness:

Under the Texas workers' compensation system most workers are entitled to benefits. Exceptions include those injured when drunk or drugged, engaging in horseplay, or injury that occurs while attempting to injure someone else.

In order to obtain benefits, report of injury must be made to an employer within 30 days of the injury, or 30 days from the date you became aware the injury or illness you suffer was related to work. Failure to observe these time limits can result in loss of benefits.

You have the right to retain a workers' compensation lawyer at anytime during the claims or appeal process.
