Macy’s has opted out of providing traditional workers’ compensation insurance coverage that most employers offer. Instead, the retail giant maintains its own corporate injury benefits policy covering worker injuries.

While this may sound reassuring on the surface, the reality is this arrangement strips you of many key rights if you suffer debilitating harm from simply doing your required job duties. You become largely at the mercy of what limited benefits Macy’s wants to voluntarily pay out.

That’s why the experienced workplace injury attorneys at Husain Law + Associates — Houston Accident & Injury Lawyers, P.C. need to be your first call after any disabling accident or condition stemming from your Macy’s employment.

Why doesn’t Macy’s provide traditional workers’ compensation?

Like many large employers in Texas, Macy’s has chosen to be a “non-subscriber” to the state’s workers’ compensation system. This means the company does not carry state-regulated workers’ comp insurance covering employee injuries.

Instead, Macy’s opts to self-insure and maintains its own corporate benefit policy for workplace injuries and illnesses. While this gives the retailer more control over payouts, it also strips legal protections that employees would enjoy under true workers’ comp coverage.

What benefits does Macy’s corporate injury policy provide?

The exact details can be scarce, but Macy’s injury benefits for employees may include:

  • Partial coverage of injury-related medical expenses
  • Some temporary partial income replacement for missed work
  • Potential permanent disability payouts for severe injuries
  • Death/burial benefits for fatal workplace accidents

However, these benefits are regulated entirely by Macy’s corporate policies with no outside oversight. This affords the retailer much more leeway to deny claims and minimize payouts as it desires to protect profit margins.

Why hire a lawyer instead of just filing a Macy’s injury claim?

Without subscribing to workers’ compensation, Macy’s loses key legal protections and you gain leverage through the courts:

  • No damage caps on settlements/awards for negligence
  • Ability to pursue compensation for pain/suffering, not just lost wages
  • No legal shields preventing lawsuits against Macy’s corporate
  • Rights to appeal denied injury claims and payouts

By consulting Husain Law + Associates — Houston Accident & Injury Lawyers, P.C., you gain vastly more options for maximum remuneration beyond just limited corporate benefits. We tenaciously pursue full legal damages you may be owed.

What qualifies as a workplace injury claim against Macy’s?

Any acute injury, chronic condition or occupational illness stemming from performing your required duties and responsibilities as a Macy’s employee may serve as grounds for an injury claim or lawsuit, such as:

  • Slip, trip and fall accidents suffered at stores
  • Injuries from falling stock, shelves or debris
  • Repetitive stress/strain injuries from constant lifting/stocking
  • Cuts, lacerations or wounds from machinery/equipment
  • Respiratory issues from exposure to chemicals or poor ventilation
  • Injuries sustained during workplace safety incidents or evacuations
  • Vehicular accidents involving Macy’s delivery trucks

Our lawyers carefully examine each situation to establish negligence and liability by Macy’s corporate in causing your preventable harm.

What if Macy’s claims I had pre-existing conditions?

A common tactic used by employers is to try denying injury claims/lawsuits by blaming an employee’s pre-existing health conditions rather than workplace factors causing new harm. For example, claiming an existing back issue caused new injuries lifting heavy boxes.

Our respected team routinely battles and overcomes such bad-faith accusations by gathering ironclad medical evidence and documentation definitively linking your condition to workplace duties, accidents or exposures at Macy’s.

How much could I potentially recover for a Macy’s injury?

Potential damage award amounts vary significantly based on your individual situation, injuries involved, long-term prognosis, and more. Our attorneys will carefully project and justify:

  • The full current/future costs of required medical treatments
  • Any permanent disabilities, disfigurements or home modifications needed
  • Income you’ve lost during recovery and may lose over your working lifetime
  • Complementary damages for physical/emotional pain and suffering
  • Potential punitive damages if Macy’s displayed gross negligence

With our expertise, you gain a much higher likelihood of receiving maximum compensatory damages compared to accepting limited corporate benefits alone.

What deadlines do I need to be aware of after a Macy’s injury?

For legal action, Texas has a two-year statute of limitations window for filing personal injury lawsuits related to workplace accidents and injuries. Extensions may apply for diseases/conditions with long latency periods.

Failing to formally initiate legal claims within this time frame could permanently disqualify you from any ability to recover damages from Macy’s beyond limited corporate benefits.

Consulting Husain Law immediately preserves all your legal rights and options moving forward. Acting promptly is crucial for strengthening your case.

Will this cost me anything out-of-pocket to get legal help?

Not a penny! Husain Law + Associates — Houston Accident & Injury Lawyers, P.C. provides 100% free initial consultations and works on a contingency fee agreement for all Macy’s workplace injury cases. This means:

  • You pay absolutely no upfront costs or retainer fees to retain our services
  • Our legal fees come as a percentage of any final settlement/award obtained
  • If we fail to recover any compensation for you whatsoever, you owe us nothing!

This zero-risk fee structure allows any injured Macy’s employee to secure elite legal representation with no out-of-pocket expenses. We only get paid by maximizing your recovery amounts.

How does Macy’s being non-subscribed impact my rights?

By opting out of traditional workers’ comp coverage, Macy’s loses key legal protections such as:

  • Liability is no longer limited to state workers’ comp benefits
  • No damage caps on potential lawsuit settlements/awards
  • The company loses common “contributory negligence” defenses
  • Negligence easier for employees to prove without restricting statutes
  • Greater potential exposure to punitive damages for misconduct

In exchange for these heightened liability risks, the trade-off for Macy’s corporate is more control over workplace injury payouts and expenses. But it opens them up to much higher potential judgments through private litigation.
