Workers' Compensation Requirements In Texas
Texas law concerning work injuries is distinct from that of many other states. Whereas many states require employers to maintain workers' compensation insurance, Texas does not have such a requirement. As a result, many injured employees are uncertain about their rights when accidents occur. Frequently, injured workers are not even certain if their employer carries workers' compensation insurance.
