Fears | Nachawati Reaches Settlement on Behalf of Employee Injured on the Job

October 2, 2008

This week, Fears | Nachawati Law Firm obtained a significant confidential settlement on behalf of an employee, who was a tile setter, in the pool industry and was injured on the job, herniating two disks in his back that later required surgery.  Each year, thousands of white-collar and blue-collar workers are injured on the job–oftentimes creating a future loss of employment capacity and tragic life-changing circumstances such as divorce and financial difficulties.  Employers that do not purchase approved workers’ compensation insurance policy coverage, can be held liable under Texas law through filing a state court lawsuit on an injured worker’s behalf.  Oftentimes, the only way to independently verify whether an employer is subject to suit in state court is by contacting an experienced law firm that can verify worker’s compensation coverage with the Texas Workers’ Compensation Commission.  An injured worker can also check online with the commission through the Online Employer Workers’ Compensation Insurance Verification System, which is not always 100% accurate.  If you are unsure of your legal rights and want to be informed concerning whether you can sue or have a case, contact an attorney or law firm experienced with on-the-job injuries.  Questions can be direct to Fears | Nachawati Law Firm, Phone 1 (866) 705-7584 or by email at info@fnlawfirm.com.
