Accidents can happen any time and anywhere, including at the workplace. A serious injury on the job can force you to miss time from work, which can make it difficult to cover household expenses and support your family without a consistent paycheck. Fortunately, there are several options to recover compensation that can pay for your medical bills, lost wages, and even pain and suffering.

At Zambrano Law Firm, we are dedicated to helping our clients obtain the benefits, settlement, or verdict necessary to successfully recover from injury and stay financially afloat during the healing process. With more than a decade of legal experience, our McAllen personal injury lawyers can provide knowledgeable and compassionate legal services guide you through the legal process and protect your rights and best interests while negotiating with insurance companies to maximize your entitled award.

Workers’ Compensation vs. Personal Injury

If you have suffered a work injury in Texas, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation in Texas. These benefits provide wage replacement and medical treatment to employees who become injured or ill while performing job-related duties.

In order to recover these benefits, you must report the work injury to your employer within 30 days. But it is wise to do so as soon as possible. In addition to medical and income benefits, workers’ compensation also provides vocational rehabilitation if you cannot return to your previous job due to permanent injuries and even death benefits.

Common types of work injuries include:

  • Slips, trips, and falls
  • Muscle sprains and strains
  • Crash or impact injuries
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Being struck by falling objects
  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Toxic chemical exposure

However, not all employers are required to carry workers’ compensation—except for public employers. If your employer doesn’t have workers’ compensation insurance—or you were injured by a third party not related to your employer—you may file a personal injury lawsuit.

A personal injury claim can help you recover both economic and noneconomic damages such as pain and suffering. You cannot recover noneconomic damages in a workers’ compensation claim because you automatically give up your rights to sue when you accept benefits.
