If your employer does not participate in the Texas workers compensation program, you still have the legal right to obtain compensation if you are injured on the job. An employer operating outside the workers compensation program (“a non-subscriber”) loses some legal rights as a result of not participating in the program. For example, a non-subscriber employer may not be able to argue that your own negligence or a co-worker’s negligence contributed to the work accident, and your employer may also be denied the ability to assert the defense that you assumed the risk of injury or death. Although each case is different, another benefit of asserting a claim against a non-subscriber employer is the potential of being awarded a larger settlement or verdict than is available in the workers compensation system. Pain and suffering damages and punitive damages are also available in non-subscriber job injury cases.
