Many employers carry workers’ compensation insurance in Texas. This insurance system provides covered employees with income and medical benefits if they are injured on the job or have a work-related injury or illness regardless of fault.
In the case of death, the employee’s family receives partial income replacement benefits for various periods of time; however, the trade-off is the employee’s family cannot sue the employer for actual damages if the employee’s death was caused by negligence.
If you find yourself in this unfortunate situation, do not rule out the possibility of a wrongful death case - know what questions to ask ahead of time.
