Accidents happen, but when they happen while at work you could be entitled to financial support for injuries suffered on the job. Your work is your livelihood and having an injury could hinder it while medical costs mount up quickly.

Dependent upon the circumstances surrounding your injury, you may have the legal right to file a Providence insurance work injury claim. We’ll go through how this works step-by-step so you’re equipped with essential knowledge about this complicated process.

Texas Non-Subscriber Claim Vs Workers’ Comp

It is extremely important when a workplace accident has happened that an injured worker understands whether their employer subscribes or opted out of Texas Workers Comp coverage; this decision has significant effects on their rights and process for seeking compensation.

Understanding Workers’ Compensation in Texas

Texas stands apart in that most employers do not need to carry workers’ compensation insurance, unlike many states such as Washington or other places like California which do require it for most employers. 

Workers’ comp is a state-regulated program which offers medical benefits and income replacement to employees injured on the job. Under this system, employees generally cannot sue their employers for workplace injuries, and fault is not a factor in receiving benefits.

The Non-Subscriber Option

Employers that opt out of workers’ compensation coverage, known as non-subscribers, typically purchase private policies from Providence Insurance to cover employee injury claims instead of participating in state programs. While this gives more control to employers over terms and costs for coverage; there may also be significant legal ramifications.

Key Differences in Legal Recourse

One of the main distinctions between Texas workers’ compensation claims and non-subscriber claims lies in employees injured while working for non-subscriber employers still having legal recourse to sue their employers for negligence. Such an action often yields higher settlement amounts compared to workers’ comp payouts.

Checking Your Employer’s Coverage

If you are uncertain whether your employer participates in Texas workers’ compensation program or has purchased private coverage through Providence Insurance, check the Texas Department of Insurance website to learn the status. 

Knowing these facts will determine your legal options following a workplace injury as well as which steps would be most advantageous to take next.

Providence Insurance Claims

Providence Insurance provides employers with third-party administration services for workers’ compensation insurance claims and private workers’ comp. In order to maximize benefits available under their policies, understanding how a claim with Providence works is of utmost importance for receiving all due benefits.

Providence Insurance Offers Employers Key Services

Providence Insurance provides several key services for employers, which includes monitoring claims and treatment, providing medical experts for evaluations, managing prescriptions, conducting liability investigations, maintaining OSHA record-keeping, conducting liability investigations and loss analysis services to manage liability while encouraging employees back into work as quickly as possible. All these are designed to reduce employers’ liabilities while supporting employees returning back quickly into work environments.

Role of Providence Insurance

When working with Providence Insurance, keep this in mind: Their primary duty lies with their client–your employer–who typically wants to reduce claims costs as quickly and as cost effectively as possible in order to minimize liabilities on both ends. 

Unfortunately, this can put pressure on employees who accept early settlement offers or return quickly before fully recovering.

Negotiating Your Claim

Many accident victims don’t realize they don’t need to accept the first settlement offered by an insurer; rather it is important for you to fully evaluate all aspects of your claim including medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering and long-term impact on work ability. Consulting with a law firm experienced with Providence claims like Husain Law + Associates Accident Attorneys, P.C. can assist in reaching a fair agreement which takes into account all losses suffered and injuries suffered as accurately as possible. 

Workers’ Comp Liability

Liability assessment is at the core of filing any claim, especially one where negligence must be proven. In general, fault is rarely an issue when filing a workers’ comp claim. 

As long as an injury occurred during job duties and your employer had workers’ comp insurance in effect, you are likely entitled to benefits that cover medical costs and some lost income regardless of who caused them.

Non-Subscriber Claim Liability

In contrast, filing a non-subscriber claim with a private insurer like Providence Insurance requires you to establish that your employer was negligent. 

This means demonstrating that the employer failed to provide a safe working environment or that their actions directly contributed to your injury. Evidence may include unsafe working conditions, lack of proper training, failure to maintain equipment, or other negligent behaviors.
