Majority of companies in Texas are required to get workers compensation in order to protect its workers who may be injured while performing work related tasks. Workers compensation though does not always provide for everything you need when injured. Attorney Mike Goolsby can advise you on your legal rights and help you get the compensations you require to recover.

In serious cases, the amount of compensation you can recover from third parties may even be more than workers compensation. With a third party claim, you can recover for medical bills, future medical expenses, loss of income, loss of future earning, pain, suffering and property damage. Such claims are not entirely covered by workers compensation, since its benefits are usually limited to disability compensation and medical expenses, as well as a monetary award in case you sustained permanent disabilities. In addition, your disability and cash benefits under workers compensation are generally given according to particular schedules. Thus, the compensations you may get for your job/work injuries may be fairly modest compare to what you were earning before being injured.
