Sam’s Club has opted out of providing traditional workers’ compensation insurance coverage that most employers offer. Instead, this major retailer maintains its own corporate policy and benefits program for workplace injuries and illnesses.

Why doesn’t Sam’s Club provide regular workers’ comp coverage?

Like many large employers, Sam’s is considered a “non-subscriber” to Texas’ regulated workers’ compensation program. This means they’ve opted out of providing state-approved insurance coverage for workplace injuries and illnesses. Instead, Sam’s self-insures through its own corporate benefits policy governing payouts after on-the-job accidents and injuries occur. While affording more control, this arrangement may strip employees of key legal rights compared to traditional workers’ comp policies.

What limited benefits does Sam’s corporate injury policy provide?

Details can be vague, but Sam’s policy likely offers injured employees:
  • Partial coverage of medical bills from workplace injuries
  • Some temporary partial wage replacement for missed work
  • Potential lump-sum payouts for permanent disabilities
  • Death/burial benefits for fatal workplace accidents
However, these corporate-controlled benefits have no outside oversight. They can be denied or minimized at Sam’s discretion to reduce costs, with employees holding little leverage to appeal.

Why hire an attorney instead of just filing a Sam’s injury claim?

Without participating in Texas workers’ comp, Sam’s opens itself up to much greater liability through private lawsuits, including:
  • No damage caps on potential settlements or court awards
  • Ability for employees to pursue compensation for pain/suffering
  • No legal shields preventing Sam’s from being directly sued
  • Greater rights for appealing denied or lowballed claims
By consulting Husain Law, you can explore all legal avenues for recovering maximum damages beyond just Sam’s limited corporate benefits. We tenaciously pursue what you’re rightfully owed.

What qualifies as grounds for a workplace injury case against Sam’s?

Any injury, illness or chronic condition stemming from performing required job duties and responsibilities for Sam’s Club may potentially serve as grounds for a claim or lawsuit, such as:
  • Injuries from slips, trips and falls at warehouse facilities
  • Back injuries or sprains from constant lifting/stocking
  • Injuries involving forklifts, electric carts or freight equipment
  • Repetitive stress issues like carpal tunnel from packaging duties
  • Injuries from falling stock, shelving units or debris
  • Exposure to hazardous chemicals, solvents or poor air quality
  • Injuries sustained in warehouse accidents, safety incidents, etc.
Our lawyers carefully examine each case’s details and documentation to establish Sam’s corporate negligence causing preventable employee harm.

What if Sam’s claims my injury was from pre-existing conditions?

A common insurer tactic is to try blaming any pre-existing health conditions, rather than workplace factors, as the primary cause of new injuries/disabilities to avoid liability. For example, claiming an existing back problem caused new injuries from heavy lifting. Our respected team routinely combats and overcomes such bad-faith accusations by gathering clear medical evidence definitively linking your current condition to workplace duties, accidents or exposures while employed by Sam’s Club.

How much could I potentially recover for injuries at Sam’s Club?

Potential damage amounts can vary significantly based on the specific injuries involved, long-term medical prognosis, and more. Our attorneys leverage decades of expertise to carefully project and justify maximum recoveries, including:
  • Full costs of all medical care, surgeries and rehabilitative therapy
  • Any needed medical devices, home modifications or lifestyle aids
  • Complete replacement of all income lost during recovery periods
  • Losses of future potential earnings if disabled long-term
  • General damages for physical pain/suffering and emotional distress
  • Potential punitive damages if Sam’s displayed gross negligence
With our team’s advocacy, you gain a much stronger likelihood of receiving full compensatory damages compared to limited corporate benefits alone.

Are there any deadlines for taking legal action after a Sam’s injury?

Yes, for filing personal injury lawsuits related to workplace accidents and injuries in Texas, there is a two-year statute of limitations window. Extensions may apply for occupational diseases with long latency periods before symptoms arise. Missing this relatively tight filing window could permanently disqualify you from any legal recourse to recover damages from Sam’s beyond their limited internal benefits. Consulting our attorneys immediately helps preserve all your legal options.

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

Not a penny! Husain Law + Associates — Houston Accident & Injury Lawyers, P.C. provides free initial consultations and operates on a contingency fee basis for all workplace injury cases, meaning:
  • You pay no upfront costs or retainer fees whatsoever
  • Our legal fees are simply a percentage of any settlement obtained
  • If we fail to recover any compensation, you owe us nothing!
This eliminates any risk in securing elite legal representation to ensure Sam’s justly compensates you after preventable workplace injuries occur. We only get paid by maximizing your recovery.
