Workers’ Compensation law, strict products liability and traditional principles of negligence govern injuries that occur on the job. If you are injured on the job, you should immediately contact an attorney to discuss your legal rights. This is an area of the law that is very complex and requires a careful analysis of the facts by an experienced attorney.
Under Texas law, employees generally cannot sue their employers for injuries that occur during the course and scope of their employment if the employer is a subscriber to workers’ compensation insurance. However, the employee’s estate can sue the employer for gross negligence if the injury results in death.
The Texas Workers’ Compensation bar does not prevent an injured employee from suing third parties that are responsible for their injuries. This also includes manufacturers of products that are defective.
