Overview of Texas Workers Compensation Law

Serious and even fatal accidents can happen to workers at any workplace. The attorneys at GibsonFirm represent injured workers in workers' compensation claims against their employers. Our attorneys have represented literally thousands of employees before the Division of Workers Compensation. Employees covered under their employer's workers' compensation insurance are limited to collecting lost wage benefits and medical benefits. These benefits are paid in the form of:

  • Temporary Income Benefits
  • Impairment Income Benefits
  • Supplemental Income Benefits
  • Medical Benefits
  • Lifetime Income Benefits
  • Death and Burial Benefits

The first thing to keep in mind about workers compensation cases is that there are no settlements. Often, people will come to the office and claim that someone else at work received a big settlement for their injury. While it is possible that someone can get a settlement for an injury caused by a third party, in the case of an injury that results in death Employees seeking compensation against third parties and employers lacking workers' compensation insurance may pursue damages for:

Funeral and burial expenses in the case of a wrongful death As a law firm that practices exclusively in the area of personal and workplace injuries, we understand how difficult it may be for an insurance company to treat you fairly. That is why we prepare every case as if it will go to trial.


We have over 25 years experience in injury law.

There is no substitute for experience. You can go to the finest law school and have perfect grades but if you haven't experienced every trick in the book that can be thrown at you by the other side, you are at a competitive disadvantage.
