Many injuries sustained by workers in Texas are non-subscriber cases. That means that even though the employee was working at the time of the accident, he or she was not working for a company that carries workers’ comp insurance.
Employers who opt out of the workers’ compensation system can be sued by injured workers. Not having workers’ comp insurance exposes the employer to a greater chance of losing the case because the non-subscriber status prevents the employer from utilizing important defenses in the case. This can result in large liability claims that will not be covered by insurance, increasing costs and putting your company at risk.
