Family Dollar and Dollar Tree Workers Compensation Claims

Since its establishment by Leon Levine in 1959, Family Dollar has become one of the nation’s premier variety store chains with over 8,000 stores located across 46 states.

Family Dollar and Dollar Tree Workers Compensation Claims

If you work for Family Dollar or Dollar Tree and have experienced work-related injury in Texas, it is imperative that you seek legal guidance from an attorney familiar with non-subscriber laws.  As these companies don’t subscribe to statewide workers’ compensation plans but instead utilize a unique system offered only within Texas, your claim process could differ significantly from many other employers. Don’t let your employer delay your case any longer. The more you allow these delays, the harder it will be on you and your family down the road.

Some cases can be resolved in a few months, while others may take years. An experienced attorney can provide a more accurate timeline based on the specifics of your case.

Do I Pay Attorney’s Fees If My Case Is Lost?

This arrangement allows you to pursue your claim without the burden of upfront legal fees. It’s important to discuss fee arrangements with your attorney during your initial consultation.

Do I Pay Case Expenses If My Case Is Lost?

Case expenses can include costs for medical records, expert witnesses, and other necessary expenditures. Some attorneys cover these expenses upfront and only seek reimbursement if you win your case.
