As a dedicated employee who works hard for their paycheck, you’d expect Dollar General to simply take care of you through typical workers’ compensation coverage and benefits after a legitimate workplace injury, right? To have your back medically and financially while you regain your health? Not so fast — because the giant Dollar General corporation has opted to declare itself a “non-subscriber” to Texas’ workers’ compensation program. This designation allows them to forgo providing standard worker protections through legally-regulated insurance like most employers. Instead, they offer limited injury benefits completely controlled through their own in-house corporate policies. As a result, you are likely to be short-changed when it comes to receiving fair comp, unless, of course, you hire the experienced and skilled team of attorneys.

Our elite litigators have spent decades battling underhanded tactics from large employers like Dollar General who bend over backwards to avoid accountability when their workers sustain injuries just from performing their daily job duties and responsibilities. We understand the self-serving games these “non-subscriber” companies try to pull, lowballing, delaying or outright denying workers their rightfully-owed compensation. But armed with comprehensive knowledge of all applicable Texas labor laws, our respected firm tenaciously shuts down their fee-avoidance schemes using the full force of the legal system.

If you’re a Dollar General worker in the Houston area struggling with injuries or health issues obtained from workplace conditions or incidents, call (713) 804-8149 right now for a free, no-obligation first consultation about your situation. We’ll examine every aspect, advise you of your rights, and outline a hard-hitting plan tailored to secure maximum accountability and recovery — without any up-front costs or fees unless we make a settlement happen!

What kind of benefits does Dollar General actually provide as a “non-subscriber”?

Since Dollar General opted out of participating in Texas’ regulated workers’ compensation program, they maintain limited corporate injury policies instead of providing true workers’ comp protections. Specifics are often unclear, but these may include:

  • Partial coverage of medical expenses from on-the-job injuries and incidents (amounts arbitrary)
  • Some temporary partial wage replacement for time missed while recovering (typically low amounts)
  • Potential minimal permanent disability or impairment payments for severe, debilitating injuries (rare)
  • Basic death/funeral expense benefits for families of employees killed in fatal workplace accidents

However, Dollar General executives have full discretion to arbitrarily cap these benefits at any level based on corporate interests alone. Injured workers lack any ability to appeal underpayment or denial of benefits through the legal system. The company’s policies put its own profits ahead of employees’ well-being.

Why should I consider a personal injury lawsuit against Dollar General instead?

While Dollar General likely portrays its workplace injury plan as fairly comprehensive, digging deeper reveals major limitations and shortcomings compared to the full legal compensation you may be owed, such as:

  • Only receiving a portion of medical costs instead of 100% coverage
  • Having wage loss benefits artificially capped at percentages rather than full income replacements
  • Lacking any compensation for non-economic damages like pain/suffering and emotional distress
  • Inability to dispute underpaid benefits or pursue additional legal damages
  • Excessive restrictions where pre-existing conditions can negate benefits entirely
  • Strict statute of limitation windows closing off all options after short time periods

By hiring Husain Law + Associates — Houston Accident & Injury Lawyers, P.C. to file a formal personal injury lawsuit against Dollar General’s corporate entity, our elite attorneys can tenaciously pursue your full legal rights and remedies through the court system instead of being limited by the company’s self-serving policies. We calculate and demand your complete economic damages related to lost income and medical costs, as well as non-economic damages like diminished quality of life and psychological impacts.

How exactly does one file a personal injury lawsuit against Dollar General?

The first crucial step is contacting our firm at (713) 804-8149 immediately after any kind of injury incident related to your Dollar General workplace duties and responsibilities. We’ll examine all details to ensure no notification deadlines are missed. From there, our team takes an aggressive approach:

  • Building a solid legal case establishing how Dollar General’s negligence directly allowed hazardous workplace conditions
  • Filing formal personal injury claims and complaints to initiate your lawsuit against the corporate entity
  • Calculating and demanding your full damages related to medical costs, lost wages, pain/suffering, disability, etc.
  • Negotiating fervently through mediation and arbitration for maximum possible settlement awards
  • If needed, preparing for elite litigation to take your ironclad case to trial for a judgment by jury

Having renowned Husain Law + Associates — Houston Accident & Injury Lawyers, P.C. representation puts Dollar General on notice you won’t be pushed around or ripped off through their shrouded “non-subscriber” protocols.

What exactly constitutes a valid “workplace injury” to sue over against Dollar General?

Any injury, condition or occupational illness you sustained as a direct result of performing required job duties or being exposed to workplace hazards/conditions during your employment with Dollar General could potentially qualify legal action, such as:

  • Acute injuries from slips, trips and falls occurring in stores or stockrooms
  • Overexertion injuries (muscle strains, back issues, etc.) from lifting, pushing, pulling or carrying heavy objects
  • Repetitive stress or motion injuries (carpal tunnel, tendinitis, bursitis, etc.) from repeated strenuous tasks
  • Lacerations, cuts, punctures or caught-between injuries involving equipment/machinery
  • Being struck by falling objects, debris, supplies or equipment in hazardous conditions
  • Exposure injuries like respiratory issues from chemical cleaners or environmental toxins
  • Hearing damage/loss from excessive noise levels in stores/stockrooms
  • Burns, electrocution or other injuries related to dangerous store utilities

Even seemingly “minor” injuries can often blossom into more severe conditions without proper care and accommodation. Our attorneys analyze each situation individually to determine your optimal path for legal recourse.

What if Dollar General tries claiming I had pre-existing conditions?

A common corporate defense tactic is attempting to solely blame any pre-existing employee health conditions as the primary cause of their injury or disability instead of acknowledging workplace factors. For example, trying to claim a prior back injury is the real culprit behind one sustained from lifting heavy boxes on the job. But our respected team has successfully defeated and disproven such bad-faith accusations countless times before through gathering thorough medical evidence and testimony from occupational health specialists. We’ll aggressively fight to ensure Dollar General is held fully accountable for any negligence that created or exacerbated hazardous working conditions directly contributing to your injuries.

How much could I potentially recover from a Dollar General injury lawsuit?

That depends heavily on the specific factors involved in your workplace injury situation, such as:

  • The nature and extent/severity of the injuries or occupational illness suffered
  • Whether the injuries constitute temporary or permanent disabilities, partial or total impairment
  • Calculating the full amount of current medical expenses as well as projected future costs
  • Lost income from time off work, as well as projections for diminished future earnings
  • Potential effects of disabilities on overall quality of life, pain/suffering, emotional distress
  • The degree of negligence or workplace safety hazards Dollar General failed to address

Our elite attorneys leverage decades of combined experience properly evaluating the full scope of economic damages (lost wages, medical costs) and non-economic damages (disability impacts, pain/suffering, etc.) to calculate appropriate total compensation figures. We then vigorously pursue those maximum valuations.

What’s the statute of limitations for filing Dollar General injury lawsuits?

For workplace injury lawsuits against non-subscriber companies like Dollar General, Texas has a strict two-year statute of limitations window. This means any formal legal complaints need to be filed within two years of the date your underlying injury or accident occurred while performing your job duties. While two years may sound like ample time, critical evidence documenting hazards or injury circumstances can be lost or deteriorated over time. And missing this relatively tight window means permanently forfeiting your legal rights to make a recovery. That’s why it’s absolutely crucial to contact our Husain Law + Associates — Houston Accident & Injury Lawyers, P.C. team at (713) 804-8149 as soon as possible after any kind of Dollar General workplace injury incident. The sooner we can investigate and get your case initiated, the stronger your position.
