Houston Workers' Comp Benefits
All workers in Texas are protected by the Texas Department of Insurance regulations regarding workers' compensation claims. If you are involved in a work related accident and are injured, you are entitled to benefits, which include:
- Income benefits - Benefits paid to you when you are unable to work due to your injury. You receive a percentage of your regular wages. There are different types of income benefits, depending on the degree of your injuries. They include Temporary Income Benefits, Impairment Income Benefits, Supplemental Income Benefits, and Lifetime Income Benefits
- Medical benefits - When you are injured at work, you are referred to a doctor of your choice from an approved list. This medical treatment for your injuries is covered by your employer's workers' compensation insurance company.
- Burial benefits - If a loved one is killed in a work related accident, their family is entitled to some compensation for the deceased worker's funeral expenses.
- Death benefits - If a loved one is killed in a work related accident, their family is entitled to receive a portion of the deceased's income.
