Workers compensation is a state regulated insurance program designed to provide employees with medical benefits in the event they are injured or become ill due to a work related incident. In the state of Texas private employers can elect whether or not to offer workers compensation insurance to their employees.
Employees have the right to file for workers compensation to help replace a portion of their lost wages if they are injured on the job or suffer from a work related illness, and if their employer provides coverage under the Texas Workers Compensation Act which you can find more information under Title 5, subtitle A , Labor Code here.
